Photography has fascinated me ever since I was small. I grew up watching my mamaw Wanda document the life around her on a little point and shoot camera. Anytime we were out, we would end up stopping at Walgreens 1 Hour Photo. There was always film to be picked up or dropped off. She never claimed to be a photographer, but in my eyes, she most certainly was. I picked up my first film camera not long after she passed away. I fell in love with creating photos and have been shooting ever since.
I shoot 35mm, medium format, and instant film. All the photographs posted are taken by me and developed in my bathroom.
