BEHIND THE LENS
Capturing the most memorable moments in life is my goal...
Let me give you an idea of how I ended up with a camera, taking photographs.
When I was a little boy, I was fascinated with fine art such as Escher and Picso that my parents had around the house. I remember eagerly asking my parents for a camera to start taking photographs of my own. Finally, they got me a little square Instamatic with flash cubes. I was all over the place taking photos with that little camera.
As I got older, photography found me in different areas. In 1996, I finished my degree in computer electronics and went to work for Intel. While at Intel, I met some great colleagues that were into music and production. We started a record label and dove into a steep learning curve in music industry. Our artists needed images and artwork for promoting their work. So I jumped into designing and snapping images which granted me working experience as a graphic designer and reunited me with my childhood love of photography.
Being a graphic designer motivated me to pursue a degree at the Art Institute of Las Vegas. This allowed me to have the education and experience to incorporate design elements and photography rules in my images.
I love to compose images whether in the studio or on location. My forte has always been getting people to be themselves and often to step outside their conventional selves.
I am very fortunate to have people in my life that have always supported my talent and passion. By taking your photographs, I'd like to support your talents and passions too.
Thank you for taking the time to go through my work!
Now, lets create.
