I got started with photography when my dad gave me my first DSLR which was a Nikon D3000 about 8 years ago. I was always fascinated with taking pictures when I was younger but never fully understood the depth of taking pictures until I got my first DSLR. I had a lot of fun through the years of shooting with the D3000, but really wanted to step my game up and take photography more seriously, which is when I got the Nikon D750. This is when photography turned from being something "just for fun" into a "passion" for me.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California. By definition, a photographer is: “A person who takes photography, especially as a job”. So how do I separate myself as somebody more than just a guy with a DSLR? Well, photography delves much deeper than just snapping nice looking shots; when I take a picture, I do my best to encapsulate a memory. Being in the moment is something I take pride in - whether it’s doing yoga, meditating, or even performing as a DJ, I’ve always found a way to enjoy life at it’s fullest when I stay present in the moment. Being a photographer has allowed me to do just that, and even tested my ability to do so. Those countless hours I’ve spent behind a tripod just waiting for the right amount of cars to drive by for long exposures, or the wind to finally settle down for a portrait, pushed me to appreciate every second I put into getting the perfect image. As annoying as these things can be to others, they’re nuances in photography that bring me both a fulfilling, and therapeutic experience. Because whether it’s in a lotus position, or it’s in a bustling street of speeding cars, I find a way to reach inner peace. In a way, photography has embedded itself into my life to manifest itself into something much more than a hobby. As a man, I pride myself on living with no regrets, loving with no boundaries, being kind as often as possible, judging less, holding no anger, and always being grateful for the life that has been given to us all. When I pick up that camera, I treat every shoot with the same tenacity, spontaneity, passion, and zen that I treat life as.
My favorite spots to shoot are Santa Cruz beaches and downtown San Jose/San Francisco. I love capturing nature and sunsets on beaches like Panther because there are amazing cliff backdrops and Sea Bright has the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk right next to it. Downtown San Jose and San Francisco are great but are on other ends of the spectrum because of the city streets and lights. I love taking portraits at night with city lights or store neon lights in the background to make beautiful bokeh shots. Editing the city night photos are always a lot fun because I can get super creative with the different colors.See portfolio & book
