I first started of with buying an entry level camera just to kind of learn and see exactly what was possible or the possibilities were to make images I see, to be able to myself do the same thing. I first signed up with two other companies to take their classes to explore my options and learn about the magic behind the camera. I learned a few things, but felt my expectations were more than what they were willing to show me. I wanted to be able to take an image and make it look like what I can see with my naked eye. I wasn’t getting that knowledge after spending the money with these other two companies. Now after endless experiences, opportunities, classes and instruction, I am above and beyond with what I thought could ever be possible. With MPA, the sky’s the limit and feel that I am so impressed with where I was and where I am and look forward to keep expanding and improving.
MPA: Why do you love photography?
SN: I love to travel and take pics and feel that photography is a great way to document travel and life experiences. It makes me happy and is fulfilling to see a great image I captured, it’s motivating and inspirational.
MPA: Your favorite thing about MPA?
SN: I love that MPA has it all from one on one instruction, classes and travel opportunities, a photoshop program, the experiences, memories, and friendships made. It’s not something you can find anywhere else. MPA also has this great dynamic of all kinds of instructors and each one of them is different and it’s great to listen and learn from each one of them. Ally and David are open books with what has made them successful. Very refreshing in this competitive industry.
MPA: Your favorite trip or course with MPA?
SN: My favorite trip by far has been Tanzania, I cannot put into words how amazing this trip was and I’m so excited to be returning in 2016!
MPA: Your aspirations as a photographer / artist?
SN: My aspirations are to keep building and learning. With each trip I learn so much more and would like to eventually create a website to show case my work and to maybe make some profit to fund my love for travel and photography.
