Animals and photography have always been part of my life since I was a kid. My dad and aunt were avid photographers; and me, I was the crazy kid bringing home all sorts of animals. My passion for animals has pushed me to explore their beauty and uniqueness. I want to capture the elusive mood of the animal’s personality and expressions, allowing them to be themselves with no promptings. There is still a lot to be explored with my animal photography. I look to create vibrant and unique images in a classical way to evoke emotions in the viewer. Being outdoors, and cloudy days make me happiest.
