My CrossFit gym interviewed me about photography work, here’s an excerpt:
Kate: Tell us about your journey with your camera. Do you remember your first photograph? What did you shoot with?
Bekka: The last time I was at my mom’s house she dragged a bunch of old boxes out of the garage and asked me to go through them and get rid of anything I didn’t want anymore. While I was looking through the boxes I came across two things: my first camera and my first photography project. I was in fifth grade, and was in a special arts program through my elementary school. I don’t think it was the first time I had ever used a camera, but it was definitely the first time someone handed me a camera and basically told me, “This is a tool which can be used to tell stories.”
The camera was an all-plastic Vivitar, which is currently sitting on my desk.
