My passion for photography started at age 9. I built my own darkroom at age 15, and have been the first student in the Art Center College of Design history to start studies from second term. I define photography as: Two unfamiliar people (photographer and the model) sharing the same feelings: excitement and pleasure, far away from everything in a limited time. I believe what distinguishes me apart from my technique, is my perspective and style.
