"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved." - Ansel Adams
Christmas 2010 changed my life in a way that I could have never imagined. It was the year that I got my first DSLR camera (thank you mom!) and life has never been the same! Every event, every walk in the park, every one of life’s wonderful moments can now be relived though the art of photography.
Born and raised in the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago, I was deeply inspired by our artistry. My thirst for becoming a professional photographer got a new meaning when I studied Commercial Photography at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Thousands of pictures later, I graduated with an honor roll award and two perfect attendances awards.
Having spent numerous hours in and out of studios, doing freelance work, watching videos and just shooting photos, my creative skills were sharpened. Thank you God for showing me my calling.
