I got hold of a camera soon after that and started experimenting. I started taking photography classes at El Camino College which is where I was fell in love with film photography and darkroom printing.

It’s hard to say how I got where I am today. My story is not linear, there are a lot of nonsequiturs. I’ve tried a lot of things and something new is always inspiring me. But I’ve also realized you can’t do everything, at least not exceptionally well. And in evaluating the things that I enjoy the most and that I would like to strive to be exceptional at, I found my calling in photography. Read More>>

My journey as a photographer started as a kid with a 110 camera. I was the designated photographer at all family events and even took it to school when the opportunity presented itself. At one of the family events, one of my uncles gave me his Pentax SLR to shoot the family Christmas gathering and I instantly fell in love with it. But as time progressed and the teen years arrived I began focusing on sports rather than taking pictures. The pursuit of sports continued through the college years and then came my wife and family and paying the bills became the priority. Read More>>

I have always had my eye on the details of life, I look at things differently. I discovered photography through modeling. I had a friend who was a photographer. He let me borrow a camera, and I fell in love with photography. The thought of being able to give people a small snippet of how I view life. I’ve always had this vision and taste for good quality photography. I can remember liking certain music videos, or seeing certain ads throughout my young life. When I got old enough I began to have favorite photographers and turns out they were behind most of the stuff I loved then. Read More>>
