    I love photography because it allows me to express myself completely without having to say a word. The picture itself speaks for itself. Photography allows me to be creative in so many different ways other than clicking the shutter.

    I love Photography. It allows me to re-connect with a part of my life that I had previously lost touch with. When FDNY told me I was 12 days to old to join up with them, I was devastated. My camera has gained me access to the world I used to know , shooting firefighters and their stories.

    I love photography because it has allowed me to witness history as it happens.

    I love photography because it allows events like Luminance to occur (It’s true. Hear me out…) and bring together disparate people like Zack Arias, Leila Boujnane and Alan Taylor to discuss the element(s) of photography or imagery that interest them enough that they are willing to share their thoughts with the rest of us.

    Photography has given me the opportunity to express my purpose of being a creative young individual. Exploring a wide scope of projects whether commissioned or my own self exploration of things which fascinate me and things that I want to document, understand and develop more as a project. Photography is my most invaluable tool for visual expression. I live in the UK and I would absolutely love the opportunity to attend the Luminance conference. I cannot miss this invaluable event, as a young photographer and business woman it will help me grow and hone in on the future of photography and how to survive in it.

    I love photography, as it allows me to be free to say and express myself in away that I don’t have the confidence to do in any other way. It allows me to push boundaries and be creative and make my voice herd on personal and social subjects. It gives people a voice and inspiration!!!
