When we spoke with 15-year-old Tyler, he was a month away from graduating
from high school. He'll enter the University of Idaho in September,
and while he plans to study and pursue photography, his major will be
computer sciences. Photography has been his hobby since the age of 8,
when he received a camera from his grandmother.

Tyler has shot color, but
seems to prefer black and white. "It just feels as though the pictures
have more soul, more character, in black and white," he says. "Color
seems to be a distraction in a lot of images." And, he adds, he
can process his black and white work in his own darkroom and "have
control over it that way."
Currently he's working on setting up his website (www.hazy8.com)
for online print sales. "I'll always be interested in photography,"
he says, but not as a career. "I think doing it professionally would
ruin it for me."
