My passion for photography was born many years ago, even when I did not have a camera to show the world what I saw. I remember receiving my first camera when I was six years old – a compact 35mm camera – and it was a joy to be able to take it on field trips to photograph everything I saw (years later I stopped using it due to the high cost of film developing).
This passion thrived from 2007 and its evolution was fantastic, from a compact digital camera that was offered to me, I went to a bridge camera and today I capture wonderful images with a DSLR that I had the opportunity to buy.
I’m not a professional, I’m an amateur. As the origin of the word amateur says, amateur is one who practices an art for love. The photograph I like the most is black and white, because it is timeless. Although it is an old technique, it is still present today, beautiful and sober.
Apart from photography, I also dedicate myself to design. Initially as a self-taught and later, much at the expense of my curiosity, I decided to deepen my knowledge with various trainings, which gave me the necessary tools to develop a work of quality.
I like to learn, to explore and to acquire new skills. About my future I can only say that I will certainly have in my possession more knowledge than I currently possess.
