Wn you ask most people when your love for cars began, they can go all the way back to when they were just a small child and tell you a specific time when that love was ignited. I, on the other hand, can’t really recall a specific moment when it hit me. My channel into cars was through photography. After graduating high school, with a growing passion for photography and cars, I began to really concentrate on my imagery, using up the photography program at my local junior college. This is the point where I can really say that I knew I wanted to shoot for a living. Having easy access to my friends’ cars and also owning a ’05 Suzuki GSX-R 600 and later a ’03 Nissan 350Z--which I still drive to this day--fueled my love for automotive photography. It was the key to my development as a photographer. Being able to take my own car to a desired location and spend as much time as I wanted experimenting with different techniques and setups was invaluable. After feeling very confident in my work and where I could go with it, I enrolled at Brooks Institute of Photography in October of 2009 and continued with my schooling until graduating in December of 2012.
