Growing up in a small town in Michigan, I attended Garber high school and lived a pretty normal life. That is until I received my first camera. For many years photography had been something I enjoyed to look at but never had a camera to really grow my skills. I knew however that this was something I had to do with my life. With that first camera came some of my most iconic images. I started out shooting landscapes around my hometown but as senior year started at Garber, my photos took a turn towards sports and photojournalism. Shooting for multiple news outlets including the Bay City Times and the Big Rapids Pioneer has been a dream come true. It never gets old to see a beautiful photo that I shot the previous day printed for the whole area to see. Constantly trying to improve everyday, I doubt I will ever stop. Photography has opened up many doors for me and it is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
