Sometimes, I forget that the image I present online is a little better than things really are and people assume things. Winning the yobi contest would be the best thing that's happened to me in years.
I am a 20 year-old photographer, young by most standards. I picked up my first camera four years ago while growing up in Ohio, then made a random move to Atlanta towards the end of last year to try and find more and better work. I mainly work in the music industry when I get work, shooting for record labels and magazines.
I am fascinated by human nature. Whether it's photographing someone to create an image to sell a product or capturing something unique and magical, if I take a photograph it has to have a person in it. Change who is being photographed at a location and you have over 6 billion possibilities to begin with.
A tree is always a tree, a bird is always a bird, a sunset will always be a sunset. A human presents endless creative choices for me as a photographer, I want to capture slices of time that will never exist again. I want to tell stories with my photographs that have never been told before.
