"It would take to much time to build a time machine".
- A response to my 8th grade teachers question of would I build one.
As an alternative i picked up my first camera, a small pink Canon Powershot, and began capturing the best and most unforgettable moments of my life.
Living in the beautiful duty of Asheville, North Carolina, every time I left the door of my home was a chance to capture the most amazing scenery, crazy Asheville culture, and on the winter days snowed in take in the beauty of household objects.
My passion for Photography is what makes me the perfect student for F.I.T/Parsons. Someone once told me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and finding through the lens is my path in life.
An image can hold the past by bringing a person back to a certain feeling and the future by presenting them with something they've never imagined. A photograph can capture the good times and the bad, and it can unveil both the ugly and the beautiful of life. A picture does say a millions words, and reveals all. Photographs write the most interesting stories without saying a single word, and yet can have a million different meanings to every individual.
....Using elements like lighting you can bring a person back to a certain feeling they had at a moment and bring them forward by presenting them something they've never seen before, as a photographer I strive to find beauty in the things we take for granted and capture the moments we never want to forget in our own personal time machines.
In April 2012 I left Public school and chose to be homeschooled so I could graduate 1 year early of my class and , while focusing and doubling up on academic classes,
This was one of the biggest changes and self-sacrifices I'd made in my life.
Being the School Socialite and trendsetter, I now had to cope with loneliness and soon fell into a depression, I then realized that with giving up public school I had neglected and given up the one thing that made me happy in life, Photography.
I began photographing the only thing I had, myself. And as people saw my pictures posted to social networking sites, I was immediately asked to do shots and began building cliental in my town by shooting music videos for artist, headshots, senior pictures, and even booked a spread for the local Costume shop to promote the store right before Halloween.
Being a model up until I was 15yrs old. model I have come to know the aspects of working in front and behind the camera, which extended my knowledge of running the photo shoots very smoothly.
My love for the art of photography has taught me that everyday life is full of beauty whether your on the watching the sunset from the National Blue Ridge Parkway or sitting in your room, there is always a story to be told and just like reality it is fueled on hard work, determination, self improvement, and most of all the willingness to learn and I would be honored to continue this journey as a student at FIT./Parsons new school of Design.
