I still remember the first time I bought my camera. The excitement. The feeling when I first clicked that shutter. That goosebumps. The process of photographing itself is just amazing.
Every moment I capture is a precious moment for someone. Freezing a moment to put myself back in that memory in the future. Freezing the moment so my clients can re-live the time that mattered.
Photographing isn't just capturing a scene into a frame. It also means creating something new out of what's out there. Creating the emotions, meanings, telling the stories of what will be important to someone. It's what makes photography beautiful.
I am not here to just show pretty photos of a pretty person. It is to tell a story. Because there's more to life. Because we all have to pursue for the greatness. It is to inspire people so we are one step closer to who we are meant to be.
My whole life has been dreaming. I dreamt for being a photographer when I had absolutely no knowledge of being one. I still dream for something bigger. Because I am nothing when I don't dream.
