So i decided to leave the Archipelago(Philippines) to pursue my passion in life, travel photography. Little did i know it is also a door to new opportunities of developing not just my caree but also my character. 
I am currently here in the Northern Thailand teaching English as foreign language, but still workingas a  freelance photographer and Graphic Artist. Enjoying the beauty of slow paced life and learning new things, culture and way of living.

“Traveling—it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
― Ibn Battuta, The Travels of Ibn Battutah

I started my love for photography when I was 12 years old, with my mother's KODAK film camera. I sneaked in to her room, open the drawer, get the camera and go out take photos of whatever I want. Films that time is very expensive so I would click even if there's no film, I just love the sound of the shutter. I know that taking pictures and capturing moments are things that I want to do. It freezes time and capture memories that we cannot turn back. 

Fast forward 2017, age of awesome digital cameras, small, big and lots and lots of function depending on what you need it for. There are smart phones, compact cameras, the DSLR cameras, the mirrorless cameras and the sturdy action cameras. This gears are all good, but some are really expensive. Quality of photos doesnt only rely on how pro your camera is, Even if you use the most expessive camera but misses the point of the what photography really means, that it's not just click and click and voila you got an awesome photo. There is a big difference between quality and content in a photo. It can be of good quality photo but of no content.
