Tattoo Artist - Salem, NH
Even after a few years learning graphic arts, printing, and desktop publishing in high school, I went off to college to be a fine art photographer. Unfortunately, I never learned in school how to shoot properly in a studio, or prepare for any kind of commercial process. I had to teach my self how to use lights and shoot in a studio through trial and error and paying attention to photographers I've worked with as creative director years later, while everything I learned about communicating with light and composition came from the very great teachers at Mass Art and their pushing me to experiment and find a style.
