Hello, my name is Eli. I live in Washington DC.
I got interested in photography during the pandemic when I was doing school online. When I had free time on my hands I would go outside and take pictures with my phone. I wanted to capture the moment and tell a story. I later started to take photography more seriously by taking classes and buying my first camera. I kept getting better and began to take more serious classes like the summer program at Presidents Park with the National Park Service, and I bought nicer equipment as I spent more time taking photos.
Then I joined my school newspaper to take photos and I am now the Senior Photo Editor.
See some of the photos I've taken for my school newspaper, The Beacon: thejackson-reedbeacon.com
When I’m not taking photos I like to play ice hockey and go away to summer camp to see my friends.
