About Me:

Before photography my life was technology; computers, smartphones, video game consoles, and the newest gadgets on the market. I've spent hours, days, weeks, months, and years playing video games. However, younger I always loved taking pictures and getting it developed. I was one of those weird ones that loved the smell of the orange container the film came back in. I loved taking pictures of my friends and just things in general. I liked to pretend I was a spy or a secret agent taking important pictures for an assignment I was on. I didn't understand what composition was, or how film worked, or why it was blurry much of the time. I just loved looking at pictures and saying "I took that!"

A few years ago my current passion came in-line with my previous past time; newest gadgets and taking pictures. I use to work at Staples selling electronics, including cameras. This is when I learned the basic of the camera to help sell the equipment. A few years later I finally looked at DSLRs and knew right then and there, this will be my new addiction. I purchased a Nikon D3000 with kit lens and a 70-200mm telephoto lens. I quickly learned how to use these lenses and purchased the 50mm 1.8 lens. I started taking pictures of everything, learning from books and youtube videos on how to do certain types of photography. I started to hone my technique and I felt I have reached a level to where my photographs can turn into art that people would enjoy having on their walls. So I started selling my photographs and services January of 2013. I currently do landscapes, cityscapes, flowers, animals, event, and portraits photography. Once I am able to upgrade to a large telephoto lens for nature, I am hoping to make it my specialization.
