As a fourth-generation resident of San Diego, I’ve had the opportunity-and the luck-to experience many great things: landscapes, beaches, and sports. While all of these may be limited to what we can see and remember, I soon realized that photography (whether still or motion) can capture these experiences and make them available for the world to enjoy.
Surrounded by beautiful beaches, wonderful landscapes and diverse sports, I took up photography and video early in life. I enjoy documenting the elements unique to each image, seeking to be different from others.
I was fortunate to live in a time when photography evolved with a technology capable of producing stunning images, limited only by the photographer’s imagination.
Living in San Diego allowed me to travel seamlessly through Mexico. The pristine landscapes of mainland Mexico and the remote beaches of Baja California provide an abundance of opportunities. Traveling throughout this region for many years presented opportunities to photograph the visual wealth that this region of the world offers. Sharing such experiences and special moments became goals I could no longer ignore.
Because I was raised near the beach, I took up surfing at the age of 5 and have been in the water ever since. Loving the ocean became my premise and my obsession. Add to that a digital camera, you create the perfect opportunity to capture a scene, a mood, an instant in time or a story, one frame at a time.
Through still photography and videos, the ever-changing surf, undiscovered landscapes and unexplored lifestyles can be expressed in as many ways as there are new images to capture.
No two waves are exactly alike; no two locations will ever appear the same, especially throughout the day or over time; nor will they be seen in the same way by any two persons.
Fortunately, through photography, the “fleeting moment” may not be so fleeting after all. With each click of the shutter, I evolve into a more creative and open-minded photographer and filmmaker.
