2014---1st photo class was senior year of high school

2014---Started college at Brooks Institute of Photography, studying Professional Photography

2014-2016---Studied for 2 years at the school before it unfortunately closed, in that time I spent numerous hours shooting products and people in studio. But more importantly I learned the technical side of photography (aperture, shutter,

ISO, white balance, etc..)

2014-2018---Started freelancing while attending school mostly shooting portraiture and families, then after school I started branching out to shoot freelance products, and then I started assisting for some wedding photographers. Since April 2018 I was 2nd camera for 2 weddings, and I shot my first wedding as the main photographer.
