East Bay freelance photographer available to shoot food, events, and travel images. Email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in my work. My passion for storytelling comes from a lifelong interest in both writing and photography. As a young refugee, the inspiring work found within the pages of National Geographic magazines sparked my interest in photography which I started pursuing in my twenties. Meanwhile I focused on written expression through countless journals of poetry and fiction.
With degrees in Fine Art (painting) and Journalism, I turned to a career in technology. I frequently escape and travel in an effort to reconnect with my creative self. I am happiest when I devote my energy to recharging through photography and writing.
My images have been used to support content for retail, marketing agencies, and blogs. Previously, I was an exhibiting artist in the Washington, DC area and sold prints at art shows and festivals. I'm currently based in Oakland, California.
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II. Admittedly, sometimes I shoot with my iPhone. Older images in my collection were captured with a Canon 20D or Canon EOS 35mm, and a select few were taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ3. If you have questions about specific images, I'll be happy to let you know what I was shooting with at the time.
