About Justin Bowen// A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT ME

Justin Bowen

Justin Bowen

 
Hi friends. This is where I get to share a little bit about myself. The first thing you should know is that I'm a family man. My family comes first and foremost in my life. I love my family dearly and I cherish the time I get to spend with them.

I'm a wannabe creative at heart. Whether it be photography, cinematography, music production, guitar, or drawing, I love to create and to move people with my creations.

I'm an entrepreneur. I've started several online businesses including an affiliate marketing business - Liquid Apogee Designs, and an online photo contest site - PhotoContests.com. Learn more about my current projects on the My Projects page.

I'm a world traveler (or at least becoming one). I love exploring the beautiful creation we call earth. Discovering new sites, sounds, and cultures sparks my creative passion like nothing else!

Photography. I love photography and I'm constantly looking for opportunities to don my DSLR and hit the countryside or streets to get my next inspiring shot. I'm humbled by the many great photographers that I've met in the recent past, and I aspire to learn that crazy voodoo that they do. 😉

Cinematography / Film. My love for photography has evolved into a great fascination with and love for cinematography. Being able to tell a story visually with moving images and sound, in the way only cinematography can, gives me immense satisfaction. Stay tuned as I hone my skills and offer up my best attempts at storytelling via moving pictures.

Thank You. Thank you for visiting my website. I just want to share a little bit of myself with you and I hope I can connect with you in some way. Please subscribe to my website updates so we can stay in virtual touch.

Education: I graduated with a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineer from the University of Utah (1997) and Master's Degree in Aeronautics & Astronautics from Stanford University (2000).
