How and when did you get into photography?
I believe everything started 10 years ago when I was working as a photo retoucher for company In L. A. I never thought I was able to capture that magical moment with one single shot and that I could become a photographer but ever since then I had a dream of being one.
It took me really a lot of time to believe in myself and to try and that's why i made my first photoshoot in August 2018.
