Meet the Photographer

I am Ty Sofman, a senior at Campolindo High School, growing a career in photography. I've always had an interest in photography, taking scenic palm tree pictures and capturing the sunset with my iPhone 5. I started taking it seriously when I got my first real camera my freshman year. I, at the time, was limited to sports photography, and quickly grew a relationship with the basketball team at Campo. I was the team photographer my freshman year, and captured many memorable moments of the people I became very close to early on in my high school career. Covid struck and all of the momentum I had in my early photography life came to an abrupt stop. I took a while off of taking photos simply because there was nothing going on. There was no where to go, and no one to see. 

My junior year was stressful. I played for the basketball team, which took a toll on my well-being and free time. On top of that, I had to worry about the stresses of school, AP tests, and SAT's. Photography was a distant activity for me, and wasn't apart of my life for a long period of time. With junior year ending, and summer starting, I knew I needed to pick my camera up again. Traveling many diverse locations, attending different events, I got the ball rolling again. I captured, what I believe, are the best pictures I've been able to capture, ever. I truly found myself as a photographer this summer and have all the momentum in the world leading into my senior year. School culture, sports, nature, and street life, are all things I've been able to cover already this year, and can not wait to see what's coming moving forward.
