I have always had a passion for photography. Honestly, I never discovered it until I picked up a camera during my college years in 2004. It has been 11 years since then, and I have been taking photographs everywhere I have set foot on. From foreign soil to deep within the forest of Yosemite, I have captured many moments where time stood still, evoking powerful emotions and history. Some may pick up photography as a career, but I choose it as my life. Photographs are used to connect, communicate, teach, understand, and to remember — It speaks a universal language. Like the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”, a phrase that appeared in the 1911 newspaper, which eventually led to numerous uses up to now. My passion to capture moments that are invisible to the eyes, drives me to be who I am today. Connecting people through photographs is amazingly powerful and touches the human heart. Wedding couples who go through their wedding hardly remember everything that happened, especially behind scenes when they are busy with preparations or being guided by their coordinators. I capture the moments they don’t get the opportunity to take in or even perhaps forgotten. When they look back at the photographs captured, I can see their wedding day being replayed in their eyes by the way they smile, and that brings me nothing but joy in my heart.
Being a father of one at this point in time, I truly value time. Time can never be rewound, but it can be captured to be looked back upon. That is my true goal in being a Photojournalist.
Action is eloquence. The only thing worth saying is what you really feel. They are composed like music. guided by his sense of beauty, and individual transforms a fortuitous occurrence (beethoven’s music, death under a train) into a motif, which then assumes a permanent place in the composition of the individual’s life.
