Making pictures is fun. 

Making pictures that move you is an art.

It takes composition, understanding of how light affects the subject and an eye to see the finished image through the camera lens.

The most important thing in the process of creating memorable pictures is not only to have a passion for photography. You need to take time to listen to your clients.  This allows for a clear understanding of what you want the image to accomplish.

My first introduction to the art of photography was in high school in  Venezuela.  We did not have very much to work with as far as equipment went; but we had lots of interest and curiosity about making pictures.  That love for the craft stayed with me through the years. After 20 years  of corporate life with newspapers,  I decided to follow my passion and decided to take the plunge to pursue photography as a profession.
