Brown pelican posing for a portrait photo at the Monterey Fisherman's Wharf
I am a self-taught fine art photographer living and working in Monterey, California. At an early age, I demonstrated great interest in the arts. I started classical music lessons at the age of five followed by painting a few years later. It wasn’t until late 2006, however, that I turned to photography as a form of artistic expression. I am very committed to photography as art and always leave part of myself in every image I make. For me, every photograph is a self-portrait.
