Where it all started…

Shane fell in love with photography when he took his first analog photography course in high school. While in high school, he studied photography for three years and gained strong foundational knowledge in the art.

After he completed some general education requirements at a local community college, he decided to get his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Photography and his Bachelor of Arts in Communication at the University of Colorado, Denver (UCD). Once he started, he was unsure of where his photographic career would head.

Shane’s photographic style started to evolve as he grew his skill set and began to realize his love for portrait photography. He loved photographing people with analog film and often utilized his University’s on-campus darkrooms to develop film and make prints.
