I was sitting in my AP photography class pondering what to do with my life after I graduated high school and it dawned on me... I didn't hate photography and I was pretty okay at it! I went on several college visits until I fell in love with Ohio University, Go Bobcats!!! At first I was planning on studying fine art photography until I realized that OU had an AMAZING visual communications program which offered a commercial photography degree. Through my four magical years at the greatest place on Earth I learned how to take my love of photography and turn it into a practical job. Upon graduating I freelanced in Cleveland with an amazing and talented community of photographers, assistants, stylists and producers. In January 2016 I was scooped up as a full time photo assistant by TRG where I first had an internship in 2013.
Favorite thing about assisting: Meeting new people, problem solving, and of course watching the sunrise/sunset with the photographers.
Assistant Tips: Bright things are bright, hot things are hot, sharp things are sharp.
