Thanks to the wonderful staff at Tribeza Magazine for giving me an opportunity to showcase my work in your magazine. I had a good time shooting at the Departure Lounge in downtown Austin.
I have recently relocated to Austin, Texas. I will be interning with an amazing still photographer by the name of Adam Voorhes. He has worked with clients such as ESPN, Texas Monthly, Wired, Oprah Magazine and many more.
I couldn't be happier at the opportunity that is presented here in Austin, very exciting phase of my young professional career. I would also like to offer my assistance to any photographers in the local Austin area to gain more experience and network with the working photographers that shares my passion.
For the past 3 years, I have dedicated my time and effort to learn photography from the inside out at Brooks Institute, Ventura. During this time, I have made a lot of friends and consider many my family. We started together, fought hard, shed blood, and sweat day in and day out. Today marks an end of Brooks Institute as the same board members that vow to change the culture of our school have decided to close the doors to our education. I am sadden by this as I was so close to completing my goal of being the first in my family to obtain a degree in college.
While this may mark an end of an era, I am happy to say that I have met some incredible people within the Brooks family and with their support, I am now fueled with a new passion and goal. I am excited for this new beginning and can't wait for the opportunities that will present itself through hard work and perseverance.
With just two more semesters to go, I am that much closer in my quest to be the first of my immediate family to receive a college graduate degree, a BFA in Photography. I will attempt to live the dream and free myself from the shackles of corporate America.
