I developed a special affection in shooting portraits focusing mainly on natural lighting, presenting it meaningfully and in an engaging format during my time as a freelancer. When I’m not at work by assignment, I devote much of my time and passion to my personal photography projects. My educational background also disciplined me to approach photography with a refreshed perspective, angles and interpretations. Being engaged in images mirrors my desire to understand the world as it is and how I see it.
One of my personal projects was a tribute to my father and grandfather, both of whom passed away a couple of years back. It is a diptych that parallels the phases of grief that my grandmother and I experienced during and after their passing; from the last good days, to the dark ones until the time we learned to let go of all our pain.
Photography has always been my freedom of expression; where others can write songs and make beautiful poetry, I make captivating imagery. This opportunity is important for me because I believe this experience can greatly expand the knowledge I have in capturing moments and further develop my growth as a human being who is in constant pursuit of all things meaningful.
