My first experience with photography started when I was a young boy.
Growing up, my family didn't have the luxury of owning many expensive things, so when I stumbled upon my mother's old film camera, I wasted no time in shooting anything and everything that caught my eye.
Thus, the photographer in me was born.
The only downside to film photography then was that you had only one shot, and you had to make it count.
It's a rule I practice to this day when shooting with a digital camera.
Every shot counts. Every expression is priceless. Every moment is magical.
My purpose is to tell a story with the images I have produced, one that will leave a lasting impression for people to pass on to the next generation.
Because in doing so, I'm playing a part in preserving a piece of history.
