Garrett Hamilton - Photographer
The Low Down - "I am a photographer, an artist, and storyteller. Throughout all of my work, you won't see the usage of any green screen or hyper Photoshop editing to make something fake, seem real. I have perfected my lighting craft over the last 10 years and have developed my own style, that which hasn't been inspired by any classic photographer or artist. My love of creating media started out at just 15 year old, despite having poor natural eyesight. I attended my first ATV race around the same time and just so happened to fall madly in love with both photography, and motocross racing. My friend, Chris, handed me an older Canon Rebel film camera with a telephoto lens and said, "have at it". I quickly started learning what the settings on the camera all meant and I remember blowing through about 6 rolls of Kodak film throughout the race weekend. I began to get really excited as my friend exclaimed they were some of the best photos he's seen, even after yelling at me for "wasting" all of his film. The other giant discovery that same weekend was the fact that the camera corrected my vision and I could see everything crystal clear as long as I looked through the camera! I was shocked and wanted to learn about everything that photography had to offer. Soon after, I went and got corrective contact lenses to correct my natural vision, or lack there of. Most importantly, I have never lost sight of learning and progressing as a photographer and artist".
