2011 - After days of researching while deployed to the Middle East, I decided to purchase my first DSLR, a Canon 600D. Just a few weeks later it arrived at my tent and as soon as I picked it up, I knew that photography was going to be a long term hobby that I would be able to spend hours and hours enjoying. Little did I know then but two years later that new hobby would propel me into a new career to follow my military service. Over the last two years, I have spent many hours out with my camera, photographing everything from friends’ parties to landscapes all over the world.
2013 - While scouting for wedding photographers with my soon to be wife; we discovered a great photographer through a friend. Two hours into our hour-long consultation with him, we had booked him for our wedding and had discussed him mentoring me in the business. Shortly after, he invited me to visit his studio. From there on out it was heaven, learning about everything from studio lighting to on the go kits. I was hooked for good.
Since then, I've assisted him with several senior shoots as well as a wedding and he has assisted me with a few family shoots. Every time we get together, I learn more and more about becoming a better photographer and person as a whole.
