I've been around an alarming number of photographers and videographers, so, in a way, this was inevitible. I've been on about a five-year journey expermenting with photography (because I'm basic; it's okay to say so).
But I've learned a ton, both about the art and about my own worldview. Maybe more on that later. In the meantime, you can read the story here.
Happy New Year!
