What I love about my work is that through photography I can learn stories that I never thought I knew, each human being is a different world with great things to offer the world. I like to communicate with images, more than with words and capture that moment of intimacy that can only be seen through the camera
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have taken photographs of weddings, portraiture, concerts, and pets. What I consider to make them special is that I focus on an excellent combination of light, framing, and that decisive moment where the person in front of the camera feels unique.
