I had never touched a camera until the end of January 2013, and I went all in after a light painting I did of my nike shoes on my dorm bed for a class assignment. From then on, I have pushed myself to light off camera light and natural light graduate college in Advertising. Instead of going out trying to get a job, I took a risk and started a photography business which is now starting to be so busy I might have to hire a retoucher. Recently, I worked with 509 films shooting in Backcountry Snowmobiling, a fly fishing company called Kast Gear, a flexible speaker company called Syphon Sound, and all my weekends in the summer are filled with weddings, 20 so far booked this year. I love jumping from sports to weddings it keep the challenge there in photography.
I have a strong passion for shooting portraits and details, but then jump to fast pace action sports. I love combining and pushing the limits of light. I am new to the photography world, but with hard work and the ability to learn I have grown fast and desire to grow faster. The reason why I am entering this contest is because I feel this can be a vehicle to help me reach my higher goals and dreams. I took a leap of faith and upgraded all my equipment but my lighting is still just two Alien bee's with one beauty dish. I know I can create more amazing images in weddings and sports with better lighting. My story is short and I am small fish in a big pond, but for only starting in 2013 I know that I have a lot of potential and its going to take a lot of work and hustle to get where I want to go.
