My name is Calvin and I've been shooting as a photographer since 2008. I started out working in various nightclubs, bars and lounges in New York City. It is at these venues and these conditions where I developed the technical skills and perspective on how to capture the moment at its finest. It was challenging and thrilling to operate in an environment that can be described as somewhat chaotic. As for my former manager said at the time, "if you and your camera can survive getting hit by a Grey Goose bottle, you can survive anything".
To me, photography is one of the most sacred and exciting moment in a person's life. The memories of this extraordinary time is captured through the eye and experience of the photographer. The food will be eaten, the music will be silenced and people will eventually leave. What lasts are the photographs and film.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Secret Engagement shoots! It's a special moment when the other unsuspecting person realizes they were captured when the proposal was made.
