I started learning photography in the middle of high school. At the time I was mostly self taught, with help from my sister and graphic design teacher. The vocational school that I attended was a member of SkillsUSA, an organization dedicated to helping students excel in their areas of interest. Each year SkillsUSA holds nationwide competitions in many areas, one of which is photography. In my Junior year I placed 1st in Locals, and Regionals, but 3rd in States, I returned during my Senior year and placed 1st in Locals, Regionals, States, and went of to place 1st at the National competition in Kansas City. I have interned with QuadGraphic’s photography division QuadPhoto in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I learned about commercial photography. And after high school I attended and graduated from the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University (CDIA:BU).
Adobe Photoshop has been one of my favourite programs for many years. I started doing photo manipulation in Photoshop before I even started learning photography. I love editing photos! During classes at CDIA my classmates called me Photoshop Yoda. I often finished my assignments before others and would help out my classmates.
I love Photography, and I love sharing my passion with others!
