I've always loved art and wanted to become a painter, but photography was and still is my greater passion. What I love about photography, is being able to turn my photographs into a work of art printed on a canvas. Thanks to the technological advances in cameras, computers, softwares, printers and the different medias, I am now able to paint my masterpiece with a camera's lens.
I enjoy shooting fine art landscape photography the most because it is unpredictable and at the same time beautiful. For example, your main light source can change at a moments notice by a parade of clouds just floating on by. Unexpected life forms, such as humans and different animals may appear in my frame as I am ready to fire the shutter. It trains me to be focus, keeps me on my toes. Most importantly, it helps me to observe and appreciate the beauty around us that we take for granted due to our busy lives.
I never entered into any competitions or sought honors or recognition for my work because I shoot for myself, it's what I love to do.
I do have another creative art skill that I truly love. Cooking!
