My Etsy Shop & Photography Journey

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally ready to officially announce that I have an Etsy shop for my photography! I wanted to share with you a little bit about my journey with the camera, and give you a proper introduction to my new shop.

My Journey with Photography

Photography has been an interest of mine since high school. It began as a hobby, then I decided to study it at a very expensive private art school in San Francisco, which I quit after 2 semesters. I just wasn’t loving it—at least not enough to justify going into major debt.

Photo Prints

I ordered them with a matte finish, and they look awesome. They also deliver really quickly, within three days, for only $3. I haven’t been able to send them out to any customers yet, but here’s to hoping!
