I picked up my first SLR in 5th grade and have loved photography ever since. Influenced by the works of Ansel Adams, I grew up loving and appreciating the beauty of nature and wanting to capture it for people to appreciate as much as I do. Edward Weston’s work taught me to see the beauty in shapes and how they repeat in nature. With these concepts in mind, I found architecture to be just as captivating. The same patterns repeating in nature are also repeating in the structure of buildings.
