​It all started with a death!

 

Sad to say, but as a teenager I lost my mother to breast cancer. My dad remarried to an American and we moved to the beautiful State of Delaware. Moving to the US after enjoying a life living in  the tropical weather of the Caribbean was a life changing experience, especially since I arrived at fall time. After living through my first winter (i didn't like it and still don't),  while being cooped-up in the house in a strange land, with no friends or other family near by, I decided I needed to finally get a hobby.

I always had a passion for technology and had a bunch of gadgets laying around. One of those gadgets was a Samsung S630 digital camera that I had picked up on a recent trip to Radio Shack. Spring time arrived and I finally decided to head out to test my new camera. As a new photographer it  was rough and sometimes a bit frustrating but after dozens of hours  of trial and error, I started to see the  of result of my work.  Over the years my hobby evolved into a passion which eventually turned into a business. My inspiration in photography initially came from the people and history of the United States. However, it evolved over the years as I have been able to travel and explore new cultures. My love for photography evolved into a love for videography and cinematography as well. My favorite camera brands are Blackmagic Cinema cameras and Canon cameras and I use them on a regular basis to create special moments for my clients. Just looking back, who would have known that a cheap 6 mega pixel camera would go on to change my life.

Now I live in the Washington, DC area. My business is split between running a mobile  portrait and event photography business, (working in and around Washington, DC, Maryland, Delaware, and Northern Virginia area), and a videography business that helps companies and people create content for private use, corporate videos, marketing, and social media branding. I split my free time  between flying my drones, doing street photography in Washington, DC and  making  photography and videography tutorials videos for Youtube. 

I consider myself incredibly lucky to be doing what I do, and I try to share my passion for photography and videography with everyone that I work with. If you would like to consider working together, I would love to speak with you. Please email me directly by clicking here
