I have been infatuated with photography since I was thirteen when my mom gave me her first Minolta film camera. I took film courses in high school up until I had saved enough money working at McDonalds so that I could afford my first digital camera. My desire to do photo work comes from how emotional of a person I am. My photo "career" began because someone so close to me, my mom, gave me her camera. My goal with each of my photos is to stop people and make them feel something, whether it be absolute disgust or wonder. I know and remember how I feel when I took each of my photos and I want other people to have their own experience as well even if it is not the same as mine.
