One of the most important aspects of storytelling is photography. As my involvement with The ReMarker increased over the past four years, I took more complicated and dynamic photos for bigger stories and individual projects. I realized early on that photography opens up a whole new side of journalism. So, I decided to tackle individual projects and take more photos for The ReMarker to see where the pursuit of capturing a specific moment could take me.

what makes Dallas Dallas

For one of my photography projects, I wanted to see where my city could take me. In an effort to showcase the city that I love through a gallery of photos, I picked the most dynamic places, items and organizations that people identify Dallas with. Click the button below to see the overall project.

Sports Photography

Taking action photos opened an entirely new dimension of photography for me. While taking sports photos, it is very important to be knowledgeable about your environment and the settings on your camera.

So, I spent time learning how to adjust settings such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO and focus to not only give myself the best chance to take high-quality photos but also learn more about the calibration of DSLR cameras.

Below, you will find some of the best sports photos I have taken.

Aerial photography

For my What Makes Dallas Dallas photography project, I had an idea to incorporate aerial photography into my work. Ever since I started working for The ReMarker, I had always been fascinated by the use of drones to communicate visually.

So, when I finally received access to one, I knew I had the opportunity to present very dynamic visuals to the reader. I had a lot of fun with this since I got the chance to look at my school from an angle that I had never seen before.
