camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS-1DS Mark II

I fell into photography 4 years ago as I was published while living abroad in Indonesia. I had 'semi-retired' after selling my ownership in a my family's restaurant.I got my start shooting our menu items and staff there. Including skills sets with staff and clients, styling food and people. I think because of my background in a high traffic/profile resatraunt dealing with dynamic public relations my photography career has had a faster arc than usual. I do come from a creative background and have worked rewriting scripts. New endeavors do not make me nervous and I take it as a personal growth method when I can put new clients or people at ease......the karma helps too

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography by watching and helping my mom in her own photo developing studio at home. I then went to school for graphic design and learned the technical aspects of the trade in various photography classes. Later on, I developed it, even more, when I started my own lifestyle blog where I get to work with brands creating content accompanied by professional photos.

What do you love about your job?

I love creating! The process from beginning to end requires creative play, I get to make art pieces (my photos!) by combining a special prop, a background or place with certain angles or many other elements. It’s fun!

What are some of your favorite places in San Diego to take photographs?

The beach is always a great place, there are many of them around San Diego, so it makes it for a big open canvas. About 2 hours before the sunset is my most favorite time too. When it’s not the beach, I love finding new areas, new spaces or interiors that are modern and have a great sense of style to them.
