Tanner Ballengee is a 22-year-old photographer living and studying in Topeka, KS. Photography has always been a passion, be he also enjoys writing. According to Tanner, they're perfect accompaniments to one another.
This photo is from a recent trip Tanner took to Tampa Bay, FL for the Tampa Am skateboarding contest. It's a self portrait in his hotel room. "The night before I had fallen while skateboarding late at night, popping my shoulder out of place," Tanner says. "Then next morning I was still very hurt and couldn't move my arm, so I made a sling out of a shoe string."
Tanner uses a variety of cameras, however his favorites are the Olympus Stylus Epic, Yashica T4, and Konica Big Mini. The above image was shot with the T4. Tanner always has a camera on him and shoots as often as he can.
