I took a basic photo class in high school and that is when I got interested in photography. In college I started experimenting with a lot of cool camera tricks. I used a lot of old cameras including an old 4x3 field camera that I converted to take a 6x7 back, a lot of Holga pictures, and a lot of cross processing pictures. I started working at North County Camera (shameless plug) and worked in the Lab there for a year printing and digitally retouching photographs. During that year I got into a lot of Band photography photographing local bands in San Diego and some for Elektra Records (ie. Jason Mraz). After that I decided I wanted to someting a little more meaningful in photography so I joined the United States Marine Corps and I am now a Combat Photographer currently stationed at Quantico, VA.
