311 Gallery Showing in Raleigh NC
Some questions and answers for an upcoming story about my work and current gallery show.
1. How long have you been a photographer & artist, and what made you get started with this?
I started getting into photography in 2006 when I purchased a Canon digital DSLR to document my children's sports activities. I learned a lot taking images of those activities. I think the artistic side of photography came later, around 2010, when I started participating in a photography scavenger hunt. I've also always loved to draw and in college I did some oil painting.
2. Can you talk about the image that will be displayed in the gallery and what the inspiration behind it?
As a kid, I loved toy cars and Lego, so I was drawn back to these toys when thinking about scenes to photograph.
I am truly excited that my art is hanging in the 311 Gallery and I'm planning on doing more gallery shows next year. Ideally a solo show would be awesome! Another goal for me, is to build up my online presence in order to create more passive income. I also love learning new photography techniques and traveling.
4. What projects are you currently working on?
I have several photography projects that I work on every year, these include; photographing Lake Crabtree Park, Duke Gardens, downtown Durham and Raleigh and participating in the Photography Scavenger Hunt. Just to name a few.
