About Me

My Inspiration

My Inspiration

I’m a father to three wonderful and beautiful children. Although my profession is in the medical field, my passion lies in the world of audio visual arts. My maternal grandfather played the violin while my mother, on top of being a medical doctor, also got her baccalaureate degree in both voice and piano. Having been born into a very musical family, singing and playing musical instruments have always been second nature to me and my siblings. Our family reunions are always filled with music!

My early collegiate studies were mainly concentrated in both the sciences and the studio visual arts. I was introduced to oil painting, metal sculpture, lithography, ceramics, B&W photography, and art history while attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Becoming a full time artist has always been my intention but, unfortunately, a fork in the road pointed me towards a more practical career in laboratory technology.   

I’ve always owned a camera for as long as I can remember, but I never really looked at it as a legitimate art medium until after my divorce in 2006. One of the few things that I inherited out of my previous marriage was a battery hog Minolta Dimage 7. The Dimage 7  taught me how to manipulate shutter speeds, apertures, and even depth of field. Realizing that my time with my kids was about to become very limited, documenting it became a priority and using a camera just made sense. My kids were and still continue to be the subjects of my photographic experiments. God bless them.

I purchased my first dslr in early 2009 and have since learned a few post processing techniques such as HDR (High Dynamic Range), Orton Effect, image texture mapping, etc… In a sense, the camera was becoming my pencil, the mouse my brush, and softwares like Photoshop as my paint. I sometimes think that I’ve become a digital painter of some sorts. I only hope that I’m somehow able to record my surroundings and the people in my life as lovingly as possible.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliott Erwitt
