I am a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin Stout with a degree in Graphic Communication and an emphasis in Photography and Video Production.
Photography has always been a hobby of mine, but the idea to pursue it throughout life didn't cross my mind until college. Looking through the various courses that could be chosen as an emphasis nothing really stood out to me. I didn't want to be trapped working a press or planted behind a desk for even more hours than I already had. As time to select courses dwindled I selected photography with the naiveté that it would just be a passable class. Needless to say, that Intro to Photography class changed my perspective on everything. Suddenly there was a whole medium that I had somehow missed for years right at my fingertips. It opened my eyes to just how expansive and diverse the industry is and how photography is present nearly everywhere. I realized just how blindly I viewed dozens, hundreds of photographs as nothing more than another consumer, not delving deeper into the photographs. From that point on, I knew this was something that I was going to be doing in some way for the rest of my life.
While I would love to make photography a career someday, until that happens I'm proud just to share my work with the world. I hope I get a chance to collaborate with you on some amazing shots!
Thank you for your time.
