I am 28 and grew up in the small town of Kinsman, OH. As a young child I always found myself drawn to cameras. There were always photos being taken at family functions and as I grew older I learned to appreciate the art of photography. When I was 15 I bought my first camera and fell in love. Every trip, every dance, every where I went there was a camera in my hand. After moving to Youngstown to study Business at YSU I quit to explore my real passion of portrait photography. Torn Photography was founded in 2008 after a dream became a reality. I use all new equipment including Adobe Photoshop CC & Nikon digital cameras. For me photography is a moment in life captured in a second and that is a joy in itself. To be able to give someone photos that they will look at 40 years from now is the reason that capturing the first kiss of a bride and groom, a baby's first birthday, or a high school senior getting ready to embark on a new journey is so precious to me.
Without photography the world would be boring.
