As a kid I was always a bit artistic, but I never touched the camera. That was Dad's or my brother's job at any family function while I ran off to play with my Uncle's cat. Out of curiosity, I put my first roll of B&W film through my dad's old Minolta one summer when I was 16 and found myself intrigued. That fall I enrolled in my first college photography course... and never left their program. I completed two years of classes at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio, before moving on to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and beginning their four-year photography program where I currently study.
The following images were all used in my application to BYU's program and represent where I was three years ago; most are silver prints from my time at Lakeland, the last was created just for my application, and all were taken with a film camera.
