My passion for photography began with a simple point and shoot camera in the summer of 2009. After it broke three times from the shear volume of pictures I put it through, I decided a DSLR was right for me. High school has provided me with a number of opportunities to grow as an artist. I have received two Gold Keys from the Boston Globe’s Scholastic Art Awards over the past two years. Also, I had a large influence over the pictures included in my class yearbook. Most recently, I placed First in the Brockton Area Workforce Investment Board’s Future Entrepreneurs Series: Youth Business Plan Competition. The competition consists of writing a business plan to ultimately present in front of a panel of judges for the grand prize of five hundred dollars. I presented my own hypothetical wedding, portrait, and event photography-based business and won! This competition was a great starting point for me, and a huge learning experience as well.
Although I have only been a member of the Hockomock Digital Photographers for one year, it has helped me greatly improve my images through the competition nights and image study.
I will be attending Fitchburg State University in September to begin my studies as a Communications Media major with a concentration in Photography.
