Photography & Photo Editing

Chemistry Research In Action


Photography, in addition to being a hobby, is part of my job at the Department of Chemistry. We needed some updated photos of graduate students doing research, so this collection of photos is from a photo shoot I had with graduate students in one of the research groups in the department.

Scientific Glassblowing


As an undergraduate, one of the articles I wrote for work was about the chemistry department’s master glassblower, Tracy Drier. This is a collection of photos from the photoshoot that went along with that story.



My very first task as a student worker in communications at the department of chemistry was to learn the camera. I had never worked with a DSLR camera before – or any professional-level camera at that – so my first task was to go out and get different shots of scenery around campus.

Photo Editing & Color Correcting Samples

Photoshop and Lightroom are my favorite Adobe apps right now. Take a look at some before and afters of some editing projects of mine.



For my college graduation, I went on an Alaskan cruise with my mom. Alaska has always been a destination on my bucket list, and I knew it was beautiful from photos, but it exceeded all of my expectations. Everywhere I turned looked like it came straight off a postcard. We started in Seward, AK and cruised southbound toward Vancouver, Canada stopping Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, and Ketchikan.



For our senior year spring break trip, my roommates and I went to Nashville, TN. You’ll find photos from Broadway, Belle Meade Plantation, 12 South, the Gulch, and other areas of downtown Nashville.



Only six months after returning from study abroad in Madrid, one of my best friends and I couldn’t resist going back. This is a collection of photos from our week-long trip back to our second home.
