Story: Sports Portfolio
Q. How did you find out about getting a gold medal? What was your first reaction?
A. I first found out while driving to an assignment from a secret Missouri informant who recognized my work. I was incredibly excited and honored! I have been incredibly blessed over the past few years in this contest and the opportunities it has brought me and am incredibly thankful!
Q. Can you tell us something about making the winning photos?
A. The winning portfolio has been a compilation of a lot of hard work. I love shooting sports and the emotion and graphic nature that goes along with it.
Q. How did you first get into photography?
A. I first got into photography when my dad brought home a Pentax k1000 from the Goodwill at the age of 13. I started shooting my little brother’s baseball games, and as I got into high school started making photos for my art classes.
Q. Who are some photographers who especially inspire you, and why do you admire them?
Q. Any tips for other college photographers?
A. My tips would be to study work you admire, shoot things your care about, and never stop working as hard as you can.
