Meet the Photographer
II'm American Citizen born in the Dominican Republic. Multi award winner, Portrait and landscape photographer.
From a very young age I felt a passion for photography since my father always had a Canon camera in the house. I only saw him using it a couple of times, but I was curious how a small machine could capture moments and memories in a piece of paper.
At the time, the internet was scarce and the few universities that taught photography as a career were not affordable to me. That is why I decided to study Business Administration and then receive a graduate degree in quality and productivity management. My first camera was a point and shoot that I only had the pleasure of handling for a short period of time, but I was able to learn the basics to handle it. I never knew that the ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed terms existed, but this was not a limitation to be able to handle, in my own way, the Exposure.
In 2011, When my family and I moved to USA, I was sure that I would finally be able to invest in learning photography and I would have the opportunity to buy a camera. It was in 2016 when I was able to make a both investments and quickly, over the course of the year, I was able to take dozens of online courses and I had the opportunity to read dozens of books and magazines along with countless tutorials, Even today I keep reading and taking new classes.
Photography has taught me that you must fight for your passion, no matter how well you are doing in your current job, you must chase after your dreams, knowing that what you risk today, will be rewarded tomorrow. Something That I will always remember is the advice I have received from great professionals in the photography industry: KEEP SHOOTING!
