My photography teacher in High School told me "...your photos are special, they stand out, they speak words to the viewer - I like what I see, don't you ever put the camera down!" From that moment on, and just 16 years old, with my Fujifilm camera in hand - I felt that I could see the world through a lens better than I could without a lens. It is something only another passionate photographer can fully understand. My preferred method was shooting in black and white film - mainly people rather than objects because people have emotions and I wanted to connect to those emotions as honestly as I could. 
I continued photography mainly as a passionate hobby for many years afterward, never really putting down my camera for too long - my instincts naturally drew me back to it! While working on my Graduate Degree in the United States, I was amazed by how often my camera would distract me from my studies. It really struck me at some point during my education that I should really "do what I love and let whatever else follow". I am happy to say that It's been my personal motto since, and here I am today - ready to be your photographer! Let's create art together!
A few more words to my Filipino friends….for several years now, the city of Makati has been my home away from home. It first started out as getting to know several Filipino clients that hired me during their visits to Kyoto, Japan when I work as a photographer there. After a while, I realized that I knew more Filipinos than I thought - so I decided to set up localized service for them. It is a sincere pleasure to serve my Filipino friends on their home turf! I am truly honored and humbled each time I step foot in The Philippines, one of the warmest and friendliest place on the earth!
