Royals III.

I wanted to do something bigger than myself during my final semester at CCAD. I wanted to push past my comfort zone and force myself to take full advantage of all my resources both studio and darkroom. I sent out a simple request, photographing fair royalty, via social media and was blown away by the response. What started out as an attempt to shoot maybe twelve portraits has quickly grown to an archive of over fifty images of ladies and gents from all over this lovely state. I am humbled by the amount of people willing to make the trek to Columbus and sit in front of my camera. To all of you who have visited me in the studio already, or will be heading my way throughout the next few weeks, thank you. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your hectic schedules to help me begin a dialogue between country and city, this truly wouldn’t be possible without all of you.
