What interested you about becoming
– I think there is something incredibly powerful about photographs. I spend a lot of time fearing that I will forget things, and through photography, I get the opportunity to keep the memory forever. And I get to set up the shot so that I can remember it the way that I want to. It's quite remarkable.
Where do you find inspiration to
make your photographs?
– My inspiration comes from everything that I see, or think, or feel. Iíve learned to see beauty in all of the world through my faith and as a photographer, I believe it's my job to help capture it and to shed light on causes that are important to me.
What do you most like to
– When I'm not doing photojournalism work, my favorite subjects are people and abandoned locations across Kansas. What I love about abandoned places is you never know what you are going to find when you step into those places. It's always a surprise and it always feels like going back in time.
Who are your favorite photographers?
– Among the hundreds of photographers that have amazed me with their work, Gordon Parks, Pete Sousza and Mitchell Davis have always been favorites of mine. I'm continuously inspired by the photographers close to me, such as Caroline Ragatz, Bailey Tredway, and Chris + Katie Robleski.
