Liam's Photography Cause
Organized by: Liam Reynolds
Hello, my name is Liam Reynolds, i'm a senior in high school at a school in Vermont and want to pursue a career in education and photography. I started taking pictures on my phone back when I was in 7th grade when I got my first iPhone. I realized that I really enjoyed my time taking pictures and showing others my work. I continued to take pictures and post them to Instagram for some time. When I got into high school, I found that my advisor was the photography teacher. He and I became quick buddies because we shared the interest of photography. He convinced me to submit some of my work to the Scholastic Art and Writing competition in Vermont. One of my pieces won a silver key, meaning it was good enough for more than an honorable mention. My work has only improved and has become much better than it was when I won that award. I haven't competed in the competition since for I haven't been able to pay for the competition or be prepared enough to enter. I've always enjoyed taking nature photography and portraits of others. I've taken a few senior pictures for people, family portraits, and help a girl get some pictures for a modeling career. I've always, however, had to use other people's gear for this kind of stuff because I've never had my own camera. Just recently, for my 18th birthday, I bought myself my first camera, I bought a Canon 7D. I went with the older camera because I wanted two things, a semi-professional camera that was cheap, and that was the Canon 7D. I only have, however, two lenses, both of which were given to me by gracious others: a 50mm 1.8/f and a 28-90mm 2.8-4.6/f. I'm looking to buy a few more lenses and perhaps a flash component to be able to diversify my work. I want to be able to take excellent portraits for people and do some good sports photography, seeing as I write for my school news paper. I specifically want to invest in a 70-300mm and a 28 or 35mm lens. Any donation is more than appreciated and it goes to this good cause. Thank you so much in advanced for a generous thought or action. If you want to follow or check out my intstagram to see my work for yourself, check out liam.reynolds7 see my progression for yourself.
