I want to share something with you, I'm often asked this question when people see my work: "What made you get into this?" Well, when I was younger my mother loved taking photographs of the family; she would always ask to take a photo and like most kids, we (my bothers and I) would get in front of the camera. When I would look at the photographs, I always felt like something could be improved. At a very young age, I remember telling my mother that I disliked the photos and that I believe I could do a better job. I am a perfectionist by heart and I love my craft. As a teenager, I had several digital cameras that I would use. One day I told myself that I should save up for a professional camera, and become a professional photographer that makes a difference with my work. Well I have put that thought to life and sure enough, I saved enough money to get me a pro caliber type of camera, the Canon Rebel XSI. My first experience using the camera was at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, which me and several friends in a summer program had decided to test it out.
I can admit when I got the camera I was excited and got to taking photos immediately. What inspired me was the fact that I just knew that I know how people would like to look in front of the camera and that the last thing they would like is a picture of them looking bad. I've been told several times that I have a great eye for the camera and to keep doing what I do. What pushes me is that I know where I want to go with this and I love seeing where I can improve to make my work better every chance that I get. I'm more than blessed and will continue to use this talent.
