Film or digital? Why?
Film, duh. The way film translates colors and tones is so lovely. Also, there is something magical and exciting about waiting to see what your photographs look like.
My first camera, mainly for sentimental reasons.
Duane Michals, duh.
How did you get interested in photography?
I have always been obsessed with films and wanted to become a filmmaker - I just had no idea how to get into filmmaking so I settled with photography, haha. But! I fell completely in love with photography, and I’ve followed it since.
How did you end up in Austin?
Late summer of 2011, I moved to Austin to begin attending Texas State. However, after just one semester, convinced that school was simply not for me and vowing never to return, I dropped out. Three years later, I decided to return to school, and I graduated from St. Edward’s in 2016.
