Photography was never something I ever thought I'd do. Ever.
After dealing with a severe brain injury in 2012, I was devastated to learn that I had lost the ability to do several "normal" things due to paralysis in my left arm. After constant rehabilitation, I still never gained mobility in my arm. I first picked up a camera at a friends get together in 2013. Shortly after, I became much more excited when I realized that photography was accessible for me and I knew if there were some things that would be difficult, I'd simply have to figure it out.
There is still so much for me to learn and figure out within photography while in my third year of college. With my experience at Purchase College, learning several techniques from people I have met, from my professors, it has become a completely different world. One I never thought I'd be apart of but so grateful I am. My work varies from several types of photography. I started off with portraiture which I still very much love but I wouldn't consider myself as just a portrait photographer. Street photography has become new to me within this past year as well as still life. Photography has become a way for me to create a story, my story.
