Why Photography?

 

I chose photography because it gives me the opportunity to express myself through an art form. When I notice a breathtaking landscape or a couple laughing in their own world, I have a desire to capture it and tell a story.

 

When I first picked up a camera, I realized that a photograph could grab a person’s attention. A photograph has the power to speak to emotions, to pull at heartstrings, to cause wonder and excitement. Because I believe that photography is an art form, I enjoy capturing emotions and presenting those emotions to the rest of the world.

 

CouplesThere is nothing like capturing the love and happiness between two people. When I shoot a couple, the purpose is for the couple to enjoy themselves and have a good time. I have the most fun on these shoots because I have a blast laughing and running around with the couple.

 

Seascapes: There is no other way to explain the beauty of the moment. Imagine watching the golden rays of the sun as it sets, the reflection of the burning sky on the ocean water as the waves crash. Now imagine taking that feeling home with you. That’s what I do.

 

 

 

My Gear:

 

Camera and Lenses

 

Nikon D800: The resolution still surprises me everyday

14-24 f2.8: The best lens that could be used for landscape

28-300 f3.5/5.6: This lens is very good but a bit slow on focus 

50 f1.8: Super sharp and best for portrait 

 

Canon 7D: This is a good and fast camera could be used also for sports

10-22 f3.5: Wide angle lens for landscape and good result

18-200 f3.5/5.6: This is a travel lens for short and long distance but not that good in low light condition

55-250 f3.5/5.6: Telephoto lens very quick focus
