Photography affords us the opportunity to give experiences, thoughts, and ideas a voice through a visual medium that every single person in the world can identify, regardless of age, race, and language. There is so much more to a compelling photograph than the click of a button; more than numbers and ratios, principles and rules, and colour charts. There is inspiration, story, and vision. Cassandra wants to help you find yours.
