Down the Rabbit Hole. Photography was like a gateway drug into the creative side of my mind. I first got into photography when I was doing T-shirt screen printing. Somewhere in that process, I found that I enjoyed photography much more than screen printing.
Something Borrowed into Something New. My photo alias is 2Ties, which comes from Ty-Ty, the nickname that my little sister gave me when she was first learning to talk. When I took up photography, I just took pictures. I didn't know the technical side of it. I couldn't even name a well-known photographer. I didn't even own my own camera. My step-dad let me borrow one of his older cameras, and a handful of lenses that he never used. He was into wedding and portrait photography. He was the only photographer I knew. I remember him explaining to me how to use a DSLR. It was like a foreign language. There were too many settings. I just wanted to put it in "take a picture" mode and roll with it.
Remixed. Around the time I got into photography, I also got into producing music. At one point, I had to schedule photo days and music days. Photos always made it onto social media, but the music ended up just taking space on my computer. Around this time, I had been borrowing the camera from my step-dad. I finally decided to buy my own camera, and one of the features was HD video. I then started doing some video work and putting my music on these videos. Video editing and photo editing are similar in concept, completely different in execution. Even though I have fun with videos and music, I still always come back to photos.
My main goal is to tell a story through my photos. Most people would describe me as an introvert, and with that, I use photos to speak the words I normally don't. I think there are certain things that people just have a natural talent for. I've always been humble about my work. People tell me that my work is great or that I have some incredible talent. I never see it that way. I just take pictures of things I think are interesting. I suppose what I find interesting or aesthetically pleasing, others do, too.
