Meet Austin, a Senior at Fruita Monument High School and a 2015 Graduate. I had a blast taking Austin's senior portraits as he is a charming, bright and definitely handsome young man! Curious to know why Austin chose to use a pistol as a prop for some of his images? Well here's the story... Austin has been competitively shooting handguns for about 5 years. The action shooting sport he competes in is called IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association). Austin found his passion with handguns and has climbed his way up to the master classification and recently took third place at the national championships competing against ALL ADULTS! He has also recently picked up a sponsorship from Wilson Combat, the best custom 1911 pistol model manufacturer on the planet. Austin is planning to attend college locally at CMU but if he happens to land a scholarship for shooting at Texas A&M, then he would love to venture south for his degree.
