How I Got Started: "I pretty much just took a photo 101 class back in college and started taking photos more seriously as I started my blog—a way to document my cool finds and style on the street."

Tip to Get Started: "Photograph the things you love. Don't photograph to please others. Take a photo if you need to. Follow your gut. Take another if necessary. Know when to stop. Know when you've got the shot. I started out shooting everything and nothing at all, but later realized I had to follow my gut instinct and fire when necessary."
