Many people that know me don't know that I have this deep passion for photography.
Ideally, I would like to be a Sports Photographer; it would be my dream come true. But it's a hard field to get into (photography as a whole is hard to get into) so I'll take whatever jobs I can get.
I decided that I was going to go for it. Get my degree in something related to Photography, and just do it.
I've changed my major about a thousand and a half times.
Then I decided I was just going to go after photo.
I went and talked to the art advisor at the U and discovered that the art department is about commercializing your art; they're more about just doing art to express yourself.
I don't want to express myself. I want to make money.
So, I was told to do Mass Communication...the Media Sequence.
I'll learn photography skills, web design, etc.
So, that's what I'm doing. Officially. Now.
I'm also minoring in both Political Science and Business, but that's irrelevant.
Anyway, I like to take pictures of whatever I can, and whenever I can. At the moment, I don't I have the camera I would like, but we're saving for it and hopefully I'll have it come spring.
So, I've just been using other cameras that I can get my hands on.
These are some of the pictures I took with Kati's camer at a wedding this week.
I did some minor editing. I just felt like posting them really.
Hopefully you like them.

Sissy and I have been discussing starting our own business, because she shares this passion for photography.
I think it's a grand idea.


  1. Hooray for mass communication. That's my major! Go for it. Good luck getting into any classes until your senior year however.

  2. I highly suggest not doing the art department photography program...they will make you stay in school for another four years. I wish I knew that before I did it haha.
    What kind of camera are you looking into?
    I am saving up for a Canon 60D or a Nikon 7000. I can't seem to decided which brand I like more yet. But either way it will cost an arm and a leg haha.
    Anyways I am excited you are into photography too!

  3. awesome Idea chica! you'll do great!

  4. I love the "El Photo" thing! I'm all, "Yeah! That is THE photo!" ... I'm a dork...
