p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Finally Graduating!


Hey FM folk, haven't been posting much lately other than popping in here and there on random things, school and work just have controlled my life. Luckily, I'm finally graduating college! (Photo BFA and Journalism BA). Anyway, as much as I like to think that I was born a photo god, a lot of what I learned came from checking out images on these boards and the help I've gotten from people back when I was posting every other thing I shot. Stalking other peoples critiques have gone a long way too, every photo I look at now gets the same checklist: horizons, eyes, background, focus and action... If it doesn't have the five, what's it worth?

Also, little bragging. For my art degree we had to set up a space in the gallery, and as the sports photographer I had no clue what to do, so I built a sports bar in a way. The local paper interviewed me since I was in charge of PR and ended up making the article a small preview on the show and a lot on me haha. Check it out here if you wanna see it: http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/20121213/ENTERTAINMENT/312130050/-Imagination-Unleashed-Senior-Fine-Arts-Show

Here are some shots over the years. Thanks for the help everyone has given me over the last few years, directly or indirectly.
