Elijah discovered his passion for photography when he was eleven years old. He didn’t know that he loved photography until he began taking pictures until he was bored one summer. When he realized that he had a knack for composing and taking photos, he put his newly-found skills to the test and joined the YaHeard? Art Collective as head photographer.
With the help and guidance of creative genius Susan Barnes, and photographer/artist extraordinaire, Jeffrey Amezqua, Elijah’s photography skills grew and he fell in love with taking photos! Elijah now takes pictures for his family, friends, and school. Elijah particularly enjoys taking pictures of nature because he loves to capture the detail and beauty that surrounds us daily but is sometimes missed with the naked eye.
Elijah would like to dedicate his first published work to his father. He appreciates him for passing along his love of art, as well as his photographer’s eye.
