Hey, my name is Austin. I had a really bad speech impediment for a lot of my life which I believe played a large role in my interest in visual storytelling. Being afraid to speak meant I had to find other ways to express myself and photojournalism fit that perfectly. I speak normally now but I'm still pretty quiet. My favorite things to shoot are people who care about a cause and sports not called golf. My least favorite thing to shoot are violent spot news scenes. But it also feels like the pictures I'm making are important in those situations.
