I studied Photography at UC Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara City College, After finishing school, I started as an assistant photographer doing Fashion Shoots, Elementary Shoots which consisted of taking pictures of children in the classroom for a marketing promotion of a Charter School. Also Architectural Photography. After that, I did the following Photography Jobs, for a Startup Swimwear Company, IPhone Case Company called ReelCase, JuicePlus Entrepreneur, Spicy Gourmet, Boku Superfoods, Brand Ambassador, Couple of Magazines.
I love creating images, telling a story, capturing a moment, sharing an experience, provoking an emotion. I feel that great photography does all of that and that is my goal. I get excited every time I pick up a camera and find it to be the great jobs that I can do.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When it comes to Portraits and Fashion, I get my lighting and posing right which for me that is given. I am able to read the direction of light, Speedlite is blended not overpowered, its used to pop my subjects.
My main objective is to communicate and get the best out of my subjects, this is by bringing their chin forward to slim their face, having them slightly squinch to convey confidence. I create a feel, spark that allows my subjects to pop.
In Event Photography, I become a Photojournalist. I capture organic emotion's, movements instead of posing. I find moments that capture humanity.
In Product Photography and Real Estate, the object becomes the star. Through the use of lighting and lens, I am able to highlight the object.
