My first introduction to photography happened at around 5 or 6. My father and my uncle were both photographers, and as a child, we had a darkroom in the house. I used to play around on my dad's Olympus OM1, but it was the magic in the darkroom that made me fall in love. Seeing the images come to life was pure excitement! Later, I went to school and decided to pursue photography on a professional level and starting shooting professionally around 2006.
