My Type of Photography

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. – Cecil Beaton

Beautiful Photography is Time Well Spent

Beautiful Photography takes time to accomplish, whether it fixing in on that great angle, making sure the lighting is just right and looking into the view finder and your hand on that shutter button feels wonderful. I for one love Fashion photography, I really hope to make it far, and discover models that don't even realize that they have the potential to be behind the camera. Im looking already for people that stand out to me that honestly just scream " Capture me!" The day I'm behind a desk in Manhattan, New York working for a fashion magazine I know  I have worked my hardest to accomplish my lifetime goal. Of course I have dreams prior to that, I want to go to the Academy of Arts in Chicago right after highschool, or to SAC San Antonio Community college. Just for two years as an undergraduate, and hopefully after that attend Northwestern University in Chicago for photojournalism as a journalist major and having a minor degree in photography. After six years of school I might either travel the world or continue with four more years of school to have my two major degrees in photography and journalism. Im hoping I am able to take both courses at the same time because that would save me enough time to travel the world sooner. I really hope that I can make it to the places that I wanna visit, Im hoping to photograph a major part of the worlds most beautiful places. The places that are not gonna be around forever, like Venice, Italy and little islands along the coast of South America. Places that are not going to ever be the same once natural diaster strikes or once something happens that you dont expect. Its going to take time for me to reach these goals and one day maybe I'll be the fashion photographer for clothing brands such as Gucci, White House Black Market, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Billabong, Pacific Sunwear, and so on. Those were just a few that I admire, time is all i have to make this happen and its not alot of it but I will for sure make it an amazing time to just ' Capture the Moment' . <3
