TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.
I have been a Mustang and general car enthusiast since I was a kid. I bought my first Mustang when I was 22 years old and have owned a total of 8 since then. I took a photography class in high school and always thought it would be cool to be a photographer, but never pursued it. I've always attended car shows and saw people taking pictures of everyone's cars at the shows and would always have to ask someone to take pictures of my car. In January 2015 I bought my 2015 Mustang while I was living in New Orleans. New Orleans has incredible scenery and in late 2015 I decided to pick up a camera and give it a try myself. I have come a long way from where I started and still have a lot to learn. Every day is a learning experience.
PRO TIP FOR THOSE WANTING TO GET INTO PHOTOGRAPHY
Just get out there and shoot. I started shooting on auto to learn what the camera was doing. Watch tutorials, read and look at other people's work to get your own ideas and inspiration.
WHAT CAMERA EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with Canon 6D Mark II
