Photography was important for me since I was very young. Every opportunity I had, I would like to take pictures. I asked my paternal grandmother for a camera, and, of course, she would get me one. They were not SLR cameras; they were the point and shoot type of cameras, and back then, they would serve their purpose, capturing memories of things that I loved and cherished. Maybe subconsciously, I always felt like it was a part of who I would become. A lover of photography and a huge fan of keeping memories alive through the lens of a camera.
When I graduated from high school, I really did not know what I wanted to pursue in college. I enrolled in a photography class as an elective. It was here where I fell in love with the entire process of photography: from holding a 35mm SLR camera in my hands, taking pictures of my friends and random inanimate objects, to processing film without ruining the entire roll to watching images appear on that magic photo paper. It was all a pretty amazing art.
My journey through college began as I pursued a degree in Fine Arts where I learned many different art forms, but I never kept photography too far away. As part of my degree completion, I had to complete several projects that took days and late nights.
With the help of my instructors in Texas and in Columbus, Georgia, I finally graduated; and for me, it was an amazing accomplishment. It took me a few years to figure out exactly what my passion was: photography, capturing the memories of anyone who would allow me to be a part of their special moments.
I'd like to take what I have learned and share this knowledge with students who have a passion for art in general. If you need someone who is reliable and patient, please don't hesitate to request me as your tutor.
