I am a Lifestyle Photographer/Cinematographer based out of Southern California who loves his passion, loves to travel, loves art, and loves trying new things. I always loved taking pictures, whether it was on a cell phone or a cheap camera. Can’t go outside or even drive without passing something on the road and saying “ Wow, that would be a great shot".
I never really thought about sharing my photography with the public because I wondered if anyone would even like it or questioned why I even bothered capturing that particular image. Until I started posting my photos and videos, people really started to show lots of attention and interest in my passion.
I enjoy the people I meet, the places I go, the ideas that flow through my head 24/7, Most of all I love the smile I put on your face. I love the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and I do my very best to take every picture with that in mind. I love the new things I learn every day to become better at what I do. I want my viewers to relate to my art through recognition of the emotions and energy that I put into this that they wonder if they are looking at a picture of someone they know.
Anyone can take a photo and call themselves a "Photographer", but can your photo tell a story...?
