ARTIST’S STATEMENT

For the past year I have taken photos strictly with 35mm film cameras to focus more on the substance, and art, of photography. Removing myself from the realm of photoshopped digital compositions while attempting to maintain the emotional reaction that a well composed photograph can evoke.

I have been taking photographs since I was gifted a Canon Powershot A470 using graduating 8th grade in 2008. When I began seeing photography as more than I hobby I purchased my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel XSi. Through high school I was given opportunities to photograph the Sports Spotlight section of the Bridge Weekly Showcase, I took several students senior portraits, and senior year was apart of the yearbook team that put my senior yearbook together. After high school I purchased a higher end DSLR, a Nikon D7100, and searched out ways to continue photographing. I have since captured several weddings, and decided against perusing that as a career. My passion for photography has waxed and waned as life has become more challenging in adulthood, but one day I decided to pick up a disposable camera, and see where it took me. A year later I have amassed a small collection of photographs that I feel illustrate the idea that the person behind the camera matters more than the equipment. Whether you shoot on a point and shoot camera, or a high end DSLR, you can still make images that you can be proud of. I hope to continue to shoot 35mm, but even if I make the switch back to digital, I will do so having learned more about myself and my camera than I have at any point in time since first receiving a camera in 2008.
