“Five years ago I bought my first camera and joined a photography course, but I never completed it because I was too focused on giving my best to the corporate world. About a month ago, I decided to quit my day job and pursue a lifetime dream – to live for photography. This is how I joined Photoion’s workshop.

“I’m mostly interested in people photography. I see myself combining the aesthetics of fashion with storytelling, as a way of documenting the injustices and wonders of this world.

“My short-term goal is to develop my technical skills as much as possible, from lighting to posing to post-production, and become a part of the photographers’ community. I want to find the people and brands that hopefully I will get to work with one day.

“Ultimately, I want to create great work, and inspire great work. Photography is the shortest form of storytelling, but it is the one that communicates the most to me.”
