What makes you stay in Southern California?

My family. Family is very important and I don’t want to be that far from them.

Also the industry I’m working in now as an artist. LA is a very big hot spot. It’s big for photo, film, and fashion, all collectively. It made sense for me.

How long have you been taking photos?

2 years.

What inspired that?

I failed photo class when I was in high school, and someone told me I would never be a photographer. I took it as a challenge. I’ve always been into art itself, but photo was a medium I was not able to do. So, I just took it up.

I took it as a passion of mine as a kid, but I didn’t think I was going to get to this stage.

How did it begin for you?

I started taking it seriously because I had a lot of people that required the content. A lot of artists that I work with would always say, “I need someone to take photos, and these people are so expensive.” Finally, I was like, “You know what? I think I can do that.”

How would you describe your photography style?

I’m into vibrant expression. I tend to use very capturing color palettes. I’m not a fan of very dark or muted visuals. I tend to shoot from a fantasy perspective. I want to toy with the imagination.

Someone might sit on a street and just be looking straight down. But I think like what if you got down on the street and looked up. The buildings look larger. I’m really big on enlarging the perspective. I’m a huge fan of perspective and depth.

As an artist, I want to touch the actual people seeing the photo. I like for it to connect with their visual stimuli and emotional side. I want them to feel the photos. Not just because they think it’s cool, but they can actually see something inspiring.

That’s really great. When did you first use Uber?

About a year ago in Huntington Beach. A lot of people I knew were getting in trouble for DUIs. I didn’t want to be a part of that. It allows me to get to where I’m going with my stress levels down and out of harm’s way if I have a fun night out.

Why do you like using it in LA?

I bounce around a lot between different photoshoots and gigs. Parking is…I don’t want to say the worst. It’s not like San Francisco, but parking is very hard and very expensive in Los Angeles. Uber makes it so I don’t have to worry about that.
