(It sounds better if you say it in Obi-Wan Kenobi’s voice…)
I’m Justin! I’m a photographer and (sorta kinda aspiring) food blogger based in Salt Lake City, Utah! I graduated Canisius College in May 2019 with my Bachelor’s of Science. I studied digital media arts with a concentration in digital filmmaking and communication studies with concentrations in media studies and integrated marketing. Currently, I work as a social media manager for Proline Range Hoods and as a social media intern for the Utah Grizzlies Pro Hockey club. I also coach and ref hockey. Oh, and I do freelance photography. And blog a fair amount. And I whip things up in the kitchen. I’m kind of a busy dude! Here’s a little bit about my past self!
2018 saw me step up my portraits.
The summer of 2018 found me in Los Angeles for an internship at Loyola Marymount University doing what I love – photography and videography. From there, I went back to Massachusetts for a couple weeks before heading out West to Yellowstone National Park. I toured that for a week before flying out to Buffalo to finish my last year at Canisius College. I did more portraits my senior year than maybe my three previous years of college! I truly fell in love with the art of the portrait.
2017 was the year of travel. International travel, that is.
I traveled to Argentina for two weeks and shot a documentary which premiered at Canisius College, on March 21st, 2018. I studied abroad at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia for five months. I traveled to New Zealand for two weeks and captured some amazing photos and film. Aside from traveling internationally, I also hit Pennsylvania and North Carolina for a few weeks. From mid-April until July 14th I was not in the same place for more than three weeks – and I absolutely loved it. Traveling is something that I absolutely love and will continue to do for my life. And now, being Salt Lake City based, I am directly in the middle of some of the best National Parks the United States has to offer! Yellowstone and Grand Tetons are around 5 hours away from me, and so is Zion and Bryce nationals parks!
