About Me

I like to capture unique images that tell a story and show personality.

How do you define a “good life” or a successful life?

“To me you can say you’ve had a successful life thirty, forty, fifty years down the line and you’re proud to tell others about your past achievements.”

my experience

I loved learning about the history of photojournalism. I learned the importance of capturing life changing moments and the angle of which you take it. My favorite project was interviewing students for students of fossil ridge. I felt involved with the school and i made a change in the view of students academic experiences. Though students of fossil ridge lifted my spirits,the alphabet project was a little challenging. Im happy i took this course and had the chance to work with Mrs.Bradberry.
