I go to College at Savannah Arts and Design where I am majoring in Photography. In middle school I joined the yearbook staff. Over the years of taking my point and shoot camera out to track practice and tennis games I fell in love with photography. I took this love of photography and documenting action into high school. I joined the high school yearbook staff and from there my photography career skyrocketed. I not only became the head photographer for the staff, I soon became the photo editor and was given the responsibility of every photo in the yearbook and every photographer on the staff. During this time I was also accepted into a prestigious arts camp in Oklahoma called Quartz Mountain. This camp enables high school students to pursue an education in the arts. I was one of eight selected out of hundreds of applicants to go to this camp. I was mentored by Ben Long, Konrad Eek, and Troy Word that summer. Along with these professionals a team from lynda.com came and taught us how they shoot and use their skills to make videos to instruct photographers on their website. Then the summer before college I found out that the Oklahoma Arts Coalition was hiring interns. I applied not thinking a recently graduated high school student would get the internship but with in weeks of applying I had my interview. And following that, I had the internship. I was the only high school student they took on. Now I work for a photography company in Hilton Head Island and I am still pursuing photography as my major. This upcoming fall I am going to study abroad in Hong Kong where I am taking two photography classes -- one that specializes in traveling photography and one to develop my fine art skills.
