Like most photographers, I started taking photos in 2008 during high school for my yearbook class my junior year. We were able to check out the cameras for the weekend and I took advantage of that way too many times. The camera was pretty good at the time (Canon EOS Ditial Rebel XT) and I took photos of everything from spiders to lamps and even the floor. The photographer in me was growing.
Eventually, I bought a Nikon D60 DSLR. My main focus back then was documenting the life of my family so I didn't quite understand my settings at the time but developed a good eye for taking photos with good composition and great emotion. The following year was when I started school full time at The University of Texas - Pan American (UTPA) so my photography took a back seat for a while. It was until 2011 when I needed a camera that could record video for some classes that I picked up photography again and started pursuing it. I haven't stopped since.
Photography to me is more than taking photos. It has literally made me see things differently, and through photography I've developed relationships with people I've never dreamed I'd communicate with. I have friends all over the world through this career! I used to be a very shy guy and now have no problems talking to complete strangers. I've become outgoing and love talking to people.
