Hi! I'm Abbey, a senior at Ridge High School and the current treasurer for Ridge Productions. I started photography at a young age when my grandad taught me how to use his vintage analog cameras and I fell in love with the art of it all. To this day, I am still an avid photographer and I enjoy creating surreal images but also capturing the beauty of everyday life.
