Q: How old are you?

A: I am 24 years old (Born November 27)


Q: What do you call yourself?

A: I like to think of myself as a Photographer. I published a book, too, so maybe an Author? You can just call me Jesse though.


Q: When did you realize you had an interest in photography?

A: I picked up my first camera at the age of 10 when my family and I decided to move from Southern California to Northwest Arkansas. I decided on a side career as a photographer whilst in high school, from which I graduated in May of 2012.


Q: Have you always been self taught or did you take any classes?

A: I’d say I’m about 90% self taught. I attend Northwest Arkansas Community college in Bentonville, Arkansas and enrolled in a film photography course during my first semester and learned how to develop my film and make prints. Pretty neat stuff!


Q: Do you still shoot film?

A: I do! Just not as often as I shoot digital. I’m taking another film photography course to fill in some fine arts credit hours that I still need so I’ll definitely be shooting more film!
