Brian ’16 Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior,studio

Brian’s session was held at Garfield Farm in Campton Hills. Garfield Farm and Inn Museum in a historically intact former 1840s prairie farmstead and teamster inn that is preserved as an 1840s living history museum. This farm is special to Brian because he earned his Eagle Scout by building the ox shed. It was designed and built as it would have been back in the 1840′s! An amazing project!

We also went to my stuidio in Burlington to take some images with another passion of his – Robotics! He has won many awards and medals over the years and is planning on continuing his education at Marquette University in Mechanical Engineering. Here are some of his favorite images: 2016-07-07_0001.jpg
