I have had a camera ever since I can remember. My very first camera was a toy that didn't actually take photos, but it had a view finder and when you pushed the faux shutter button, the image in it would change. It also had a clown head where the flash would be on a real camera. As I got older I had all kinds of point and shoot cameras. The disposable ones mostly, and nothing digital. That wasn't a thing yet.
When I got to high school, I was lucky enough to have a traditional black & white photography class offered to me my sophomore year. That became the only class I wanted to be in. I took photography every semester until I graduated, spending all the time I could in the darkroom. I eventually turned my parent's laundry room into a darkroom so I could keep printing when I wasn't at school.
When it was time to think about colleges, I knew I wanted to go for photography. I started off at Saint Petersburg College in St. Pete, Florida, taking all the photography classes in a dark room that I could while earning my AA. After that I transferred to Memphis College of Art in Memphis, Tennessee, where I graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Art Photography and a minor in art history.
I currently live in St. Pete and am still just as passionate about photography as I was when I saw my first image start to develop in the darkroom for the first time. I almost always have at least one camera with me everywhere I go, not including my phone.
