Hey, Marshall👋🏼. What is your Instagram handle so peeps can follow you?
How long have you lived in Austin? 🗺
My whole dern life.
How did you first find out about IGAustinTexas?
I was wandering around in Zilker taking photos one day and stumbled upon a group of people doing the very same thing. Had a blast meeting people and made a few friends that I've kept in contact with since that initial meeting!
How do you define community? 🌱
ugh I'm no good with words, but i'll try. community is the group of people that surrounds you. I think that it means people you like and that are like you. A group that supports each other and collaborates.
What keeps you making photos and taking snapshots for the gram?
Oh it just feels compulsive at this point. I feel wrong if I'm not taking photos of something, ya feel?
What are you most passionate about and why?
I was a music student before I picked up a camera and took my first photo course in 2011, so music is still very dear to me. Also i really enjoy a good breakfast.
What are you up to now?
right now right now, currently traveling around the Texas coast and Houston to document the damage from Harvey. In general though, I'm a full-time freelance photographer trying to live the dream.
