Hawaii: Hot Lava on the Big Island

I started taking photos when I was 15 years old, in photography class at Noblesville High School. With our hand-made pin-hole cameras in tow, my friends and I would search for abandoned trains & run-down houses in rural Indiana. I loved getting lost in the woods and then finding something that had been lost to the world.

It wasn't until my freshman year in college that I started playing around with digital photography. It began with an Olympus C4000, then a CoolPix 3100, a CoolPix 7600, a Canon Rebel XTi, Rebel T1i, and I've settled on the Rebel SL1 (in white) for now. It's not amazing, but it gets the job done.

If I had to give me style a name, it would probably be documentary lifestyle. I like telling stories.


These photos should be viewed on a large monitor, laptop, or tablet, but in the very least, turn your device sidewards. kthxbye!

I really enjoy looking at the world through the lens of a camera: it allows me to see things differently, pulling back the curtain of an alternate reality. A photograph will never be able to fully capture the essence of actually seeing and experiencing something, but I get such a kick out of trying.
