camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III; Canon EOS 70D

I have been into photography since I was a young kid. As a kid, I was once in the wal mart circulers and J.C.Penny catalogs. I was more into the process of making a photo rather being the model. I came into photography in the digital age so I was able to teach myself.

starstarstarstarstar
camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III; Canon EOS-1DS Mark II

I fell into photography 4 years ago as I was published while living abroad in Indonesia. I had 'semi-retired' after selling my ownership in a my family's restaurant.I got my start shooting our menu items and staff there. Including skills sets with staff and clients, styling food and people. I think because of my background in a high traffic/profile resatraunt dealing with dynamic public relations my photography career has had a faster arc than usual. I do come from a creative background and have worked rewriting scripts. New endeavors do not make me nervous and I take it as a personal growth method when I can put new clients or people at ease......the karma helps too

camera Canon EOS 6D; Canon EOS 7D

It has been 8 years since I picked up the camera and I don't plan on stopping any time soon! I have worked with professionals all over San Diego to learn anything I can from editing to shadowing, setting up studios or second shooting weddings. I also attended college here in San Diego and achieved Professional photography certification. Just when you think you have seen it all, there is always those special teary eye moments that always gets me in a wedding, or the way a little kid smiles, or the joyful tears of brand new parents- when this happens, the emotion reminds me of why I photograph and it keeps me photographing every day.

Thomas T.
San Diego
camera Nikon D750; Nikon D600

My earliest memory involving a camera came at the ripe age of 8. It was at a summertime wedding for my cousin. He had owned and operated his own studio photography business. He handed me a very big and presumably heavy looking camera that was so much more intricate than anything I’d laid hands on before. He told me to go wild. Mind you this was a film camera and digital was nothing more than a pipe dream at this point. I went nuts! The camera was an all-access pass to be anywhere that I wanted without question no less. I felt like a ninja or a spy that (would) was hiding in plain sight. Little did I know that this would play such a crucial role in my future. I grew up in a very strict traditional Asian household. My parents were refugees from the Vietnam War looking to start new in America. For them being creative took a back seat to the more “practical” math and sciences. While they entertained my flights of fancy in music and art, I always had the expectation of being a lawyer, doctor, or accountant looming over me. My high school had a stellar photo program that involved in-depth photo concepts, black and white film, and darkroom development. This had been my creative escape from the rigors of the core curriculum and afforded me the comforts of creative expression.
