Combining photography with my love of the outdoors and mountain biking is the ultimate goal. It is my objective to overcome the constraints of traditional photography — space, color and detail — by using wide angle lenses, HDR exposures and occasionally filters to draw the viewers into the photo. My interest in professional photography began in 2002 at Ball State University, where I took photography class as an elective in the art program. I learned the mechanical idiosyncrasies and chemical processes and promptly fell in love with the field. I use the fundamentals I learned In those photo courses today in collaboration with all the advantages of digital photography.
