Spotlight on: Sydney Swogger ? @sydcanonphotos
“My name is Sydney and I have had Visual Snow for as long as I can remember. I often remember asking my mom and friends if they could see the “dots” in the room, but no one could. I knew my vision was not quite normal, but I brushed it off hoping it would go away. It never did. It wasn’t until my freshman year of college when I decided to figure out what it was. Visual Snow Syndrome popped up, and I instantly knew that’s what I had. While I am only slightly impacted by the snow (driving at night, finding a light switch in the dark, etc.), my love for photography helps me find strength. When I’m looking through the lens, I forget about the snow. Nothing else matters except whatever I am capturing. Photography gave me a way to relax, smile, and connect with others. Finding a passion and sticking to it is the best advice I can give to those who are struggling. Keep pushing on, you got this!”
