THIS IS ME

Ever since I can remember I've had an interest for Film and Photography. I grew up in love with theater and wanting to know everything there was to know about what went on back stage and behind a camera. I use to always see my father doing home videos of my siblings and I as kids growing up. Believe it or not, once I saw the old Nickelodeon show "All That," I immediately wanted to mimic their crazy antics. So I grabbed my fathers camera and away I went. For many years I made videos with friends, and then finally upgraded to the Canon DSLR's. Thats what really got me into photography. Originally I shot video with it, but then I gradually got asked to do photoshoots here and there. As I got older I found a huge interest in fitness. After seeing my brother and sister both compete in shows, I then began to gain interest. I came across some great fitness photographers along the way and saw how much of a story and creativity they were able to bring into the image. The dramatic lighting and the epic reactions in the athletes faces sucked me right in. So now here I am able to combine both passions of mine into one. Since I have started, I have found other interests besides fitness. Portrait and beauty have become a big passion of mine. I am now continuing to expand my craft and my current goal is to break into sports. Thanks for reading!
