Owen is a student at Los Altos High School and Freestyle Academy. He has grown up in the Bay Area and enjoys life along the Pacific coast. Owen took up photography in high school in order to capture the precious moments in life—encounters with nature, adventures with close friends, and the unexpected sights and scenes he might run into. Film and photography complement his love of the outdoors. Owen is a ‘frequent flyer’ to San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Lake Tahoe, engaging in water and winter sports as well as urban exploration every chance he gets. He believes that the media are a powerful tool to share meaningful memories and to get to know others. As a result, he appreciates opportunities to get out with fellow creators and learn from their styles. Through his projects, he hopes to promote a greater appreciation of artists behind the lens.
