camera Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EOS 6D

I have been taking photos for 4 years now, began with landscape photography, and then lead me onto automotive photography. I have since then been doing automotive professionally, I have earned a decent amount from that. I also photographed for schools prom 2018 and 2019, I successfully completed well over 100 photoshoots for people. I have had no training or no classes that have to do with photography. Everything I know now, I have learned through trial and error, or through other photographers that I have met. I hope that photography gives me something more in life and I can say that I am a photographer and I do it for a living.

camera Canon EOS 70D

I have been obsessed with photography since my first elective class in middle school. My parents got me a point and shoot and I would take pictures of everything. I went through countless disposables on all of my childhood vacations. However, I never had any formal training. I worked with a few different photographers and learned their workflows and absorbed some technical skillsets. I'm also an avid learner with youtube following challenges and practicing as much as possible.

Photographer

How did you get started with photography

I began my photographic journey while studying abroad in Amsterdam in 2008. I had purchased my first dSLR for the trip and found myself behind the viewfinder most of the time instead of practicing music (the reason I was there).

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and forming a bond between me and my subjects, even if it's only for a brief time. It's challenging to photograph people you don't know in a way that makes your subject look honest and true. There's a level of trust that must be achieved before this can happen, and I enjoy creating that relationship. That's what I strive to do with my portraits and whenever photographing people.

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

There are so many great places in San Francisco to photograph. Some of my favorites include: Marshall's Beach, Crissy Field, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, North Beach, Fort Mason, and many other parks and neighborhoods that dot the SF landscape.
