Being a photographer is one of the most important jobs in the world because it is the photographers who capture memories and gives one a hard copy of that memory.
Where do you draw your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from my own imagination and artists on social media.
What inspired you to photograph?
Ever since I was young I loved taking pictures, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to Tumblr and YouTube that I really began recognizing photography as my hobby.
Why is what you do important?
If we go down the history, it was really difficult to recognize important people because cameras weren’t invented yet. We could only rely on old paintings and drawings. But now, every memory could be captured with just a click and held by one’s hand.
What do you think is the most important tool for a photographer?
The most important tool for being a photographer is of course is a camera and the passion to take pictures. Photography is a skill that anyone can learn but it takes passion to become a real photographer.
What advice do you have for someone who wants to be a photographer?
First of all, invest in a camera that is friendly for beginners. I recommend the Nikon D3000 because it is focused on just taking pictures and it has a special guide program that could help you understand how to adjust exposure, aperture and etc. Another piece of advice is to keep practicing by bringing your camera everywhere you go. The last thing is finding your inspiration because it will help you decide what kind of a photographer you are.
What is an interesting fact about you?
I’ve never taken a photography class and everything that I can do, I’ve acquired myself and I have only been in the US for 5 years.
Where are you from / Where do you live?
I was born and raised in the Philippines but I currently live in New Carrollton, Maryland.
Who is your favorite photographer?
My favorite photographer is my next-door neighbor, Jay Arr Abarquez.
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I will be pursuing early childhood education in college and continue making covers of songs in YouTube. Hopefully, I will to do photography as a job.
