Who are you? Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I’m Read. I studied film and photo at Ithaca College. I did my time in NYC, shooting for a range of clients and working some other odd jobs, but decided I’d rather be in a smaller town with a tighter sense of community. My wife and I now live in Rhode Island, 5 minutes from some really good beach breaks and a quick bike ride to our local coffee shop. Southern RI in general has a really nice mix of friendly people, good food, empty beaches – it’s a good place.
How did you first get into photography?
My high school had a small photography lab and offered a few courses. I bought a camera after an especially stereotypical high school break up moment and enrolled in my first of many photo courses. It was the first time in my school career that I felt so inspired by learning, thanks to both medium and teacher.
