Hi, I’m Shohn, it’s nice to meet you!
My interest in photography began way back in 2009. I was promoted to a project manager position installing custom designed proprietary software, and through my job I was lucky enough to travel all over the US. I soon found that I was spending my free time taking pictures of whatever I could and documenting all the unique places my adventures took me. Photography quickly became my favourite hobby. I never worried about how bad my pictures came out (they were always bad), and I kept my camera in full auto as I had no clue how to manually program my settings. What mattered was that I was having fun and, more importantly, I was learning.
Time went on and I continued to work on my craft. As my understanding of photography grew I found myself curious to explore the world of videography, and gradually shifted my focus to include both mediums. Technology had advanced quite a bit since I had begun as a hobbyist, so I upgraded my equipment (hello autofocus!) and was ready to dive headfirst into video. Looking back, I’m glad I had the opportunity to learn without all the technological aids available now. I think it gave me a greater appreciation for the amount of skill needed to communicate a thought, feeling, or a moment in time through images.
