My Story

My name is Justin. My journey in photography started because of my boredom. I have an incurable form of cancer called Angiosarcoma. Following multiple large surgeries, I bought a super cheap Nikon kit and took it with me everywhere. I went to many minor league baseball games to pass the time. My baseball snaps just looked different from everyone else's images. It caught the eyes of a few people. A month later I was invited to snap in the Major League photo wells. From there I became obsessed. I ventured into areas of photography I never even thought about. This has been a journey of creativity and discovery.
The fact that my many surgeries have left my muscles destroyed, everyday has become extraordinarily painful. Which is why my doctors said the most I can lift is my cameras weight. On a daily basis I struggle with chronic fatigue, chemo brain, memory issues and on a rare occasion disassociation. In an average day I get a solid 3-4 hours of being fully functional. Which is why everything is vastly spaced out and planned. Currently, the cancer for the moment is holding off from killing me, but it is still there. This may seem like a sob story to some, but it isn't. It is a realization of life and how to live within the confines of it's heartaches. This website is a collection of my work over years with all of these restrictions. I work extremely hard to live and I have learned to produce high quality images at the same time. Please enjoy and follow me on this crazy exploration of life.
