I have always been in love with capturing images. There is something very empowering about stopping and preserving a sliver of time. As a child, I switched from drawing images to capturing them with a camera. Ever since that day photography has been the way for me to express my creativity. I am a self taught photographer, but I do have a BFA degree in Visual Communications. I've learned and continue to learn the technical aspects of photography by reading and taking a lot of pictures. I am not afraid of failure so I don't mind experimenting with the traditional rules of photography. I am constantly striving to improve myself as a photographer and as an artist. Now that I have shot several weddings and other events, I now want to do some assisting work (pro-bono) with some professional photographers and some freelance work to gain more experience. I’m currently working on formulating a presentable portfolio. My ultimate goal is to eventually become a professional photographer with an emphasis on events, family portraits and weddings.
