Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am from Birmingham, Alabama and I’ve moved at least fifteen times in my life – all within the state. I have finally settled in the city of Birmingham where I attend school. I am majoring in English and minoring in Creative Writing; I graduate in a year. Being a writer really helps with the story and narrative element of photography. Besides photography, I am love video games, reading and writing, Netflix marathons with my boyfriend and friends, finding beauty in the everyday, and meeting new people.
How did you first get into photography?
I first began experimenting with photography when I was 14 or 15. I had a small following on the now defunct MySpace and took a lot of typical MySpace-style photos. I eventually began experimenting with Photoshop and created clones (see photo below), but photography remained a very, very small hobby. My passion was writing and I was determined to become a famous poet. It was not until a year and a half ago in November of 2010 that my true photographic journey began.
