Years Shooting Film 3 years
Why Film? I have been shooting digital for a long time, but when I started working with film, I was hooked. I love the experience that film provides; it makes you slow down, become more selective and the final result always has beautiful tones and grain. I also have a respect for the construction and all the varying features of film cameras.
Why Halfframe? I enjoy being able to take into consideration the flow of each frame. Depending on my location, it can challenge me and make me push myself to see my surroundings in a new perspective.
What's your favorite Halfframe camera? What are your favorite films with halfframe? What's your favorite combo? Olympus Pen F with Kodak Ultramax 400
What are you trying to do or show with your halfframe work? I want the images to tell a story; either through the content or tones, I try to capture something that catches the eye and engages the viewer.
When you aren't shooting halfframe you are shooting… Medium Format Pentax 67 and Pentax 645
Anything else you'd like us to know about you? Other hobbies or interests? Where to follow you besides on IG, etc. Professionally, I am a DJ and throw events all across San Diego. I love my job because it also allows me to take time to travel and pursue my passion of photography. I also love my dog, a 5 year old Shiba Inu named Miko who is always by my side on my shoots
