I am an amateur photographer and have only been shooting for a little over two years. I have had virtually no education in the field and have taught myself nearly everything I know either by reading or by the classic trial and error. I love to travel, camp, swim, horseback ride, read, and write. I like to play volleyball and tennis and have a strange attachment for logic problems and other things that stimulate the mind. I am very curious and love to learn. Currently I am a senior in high school and I will be moving to Massachusetts to attend Hallmark Institute of Photography this September.
