The minute I picked up my very first camera I knew that this was going to change my world completely. I wasn’t sure where this new journey was going to take me or how far I was destined to go. All I knew was that every time I picked up my camera and looked through the viewfinder, I would at some point be able to take pictures and tell stories through my images. When I first started, it was a very competitive industry, and I wasn’t sure how far I was going to make it. It wasn’t easy coming up and getting opportunities I had to put in the hard work and dedication and earn a name for myself. I knew that the minute I stepped foot into this industry that I was going up against some of the best in the world, but that wasn’t going to stop me because I wasn’t trying to be one of the best I was just doing it for myself because it was my biggest passion for Art.
