How did you get started with photography

I started when I was only 8 years old. I loved capturing moments from people and things around. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make my passion a career. I attended universities in Europe to prepare for a life of Photography.

What do you love about your job?

I love saving moments and making people feel beautiful. With photography, I am able to show my way of seeing the world.

What are some of your favorite places in San Diego to take photographs?

In San Diego, my favorite areas to photograph are The Gaslamp, Solana Beach and Balboa Park. Downtown, the city is alive, the architecture is inspiring and the ocean near by looks great in the shots. At the beach, the rocks and the waves provide a unique environment that makes shots looks magical.
