WHY I SHARE PHOTOGRAPHY:
Documenting My Life
Sometimes I end up with great photos, and I keep them to myself. If I do share some of the photos on social media, it is only a select few, and often the story gets left behind. I hope to instead share my stories on this blog, and my photography throughout this website.
Photography Fascinates Me
My dad loaned me his Canon Rebel T3i a few years ago, and I used it non stop until I upgraded to my current camera (see blog post: The Camera I Use). Before I had a proper camera to use, I would use my iPhone to photograph EVERYTHING. I cherish every moment and try to document as much as is humanly possible.
Photography allows me creative freedom. I absolutely love photo editing, so subsequently I always need original content to edit and experiment with.
WHY I SHARE ADVENTURE:
I went on a trip around the world in the year after my graduation. I found that it was a struggle to communicate with my friends and family afterward all that I’d experienced because there was just too much to tell in one conversation. I like the idea of being able to share my stories in one place.
I am cautious by nature. However, I have learned over time to embrace adventure and welcome new experiences. Every weekend I discover epic locations, interesting people, and expose myself to adventure. It’s my hope that by reading about my experience, you’ll decide to follow suit.
Over the past few years, I have captured many moments, learned many lessons, and collected a lot of knowledge. From photo editing tricks, workflow, travel tips, hiking recommendations, camera gear, and motivating words, I want to share the knowledge that has shaped me.
