Hello and thank you for visiting my profile! *bow*
I was fortunate to find ways to combine two of my most expensive hobbies: designing/building show/performance cars and photography (just please don't label me as an import photographer, thx). With my photography hobby, I have the privilege to know, work with, and learn from talented photographer friends where I can provide quality photos for models and friends mostly in (but not restricted to) the auto aftermarket industry (aka "import scene" to many). I don't think of myself as a professional photographer cause there's so much I can still learn from other photographers, MUAs, and models. I may not be the best out there, nor am I the worst; but, if you like the type of photos I take or would like to help a growing photographer, it would be a pleasure to collaborate with any of you with future projects! I consider myself very fortunate in photoshooting all the models I've worked with so far.
It's a hobby... I'm on a budget... I can only afford to do TFP/CDs unless you think I'm good enough to treat me out for sushi?

I apologize for not e-mailing back some of you that have been contacting me. Unfortuantely, I was out of comission for a bit. I sustained an injury back in mid-2006 that kept me off my feet for several months. I'm hoping I'll be up and about to do photoshoots again on a more regular basis. So please keep in touch, and I'll just keep this down-time used for me to think of some great ideals for some shoots!
R.I.P. to my buddy, Oliver Mendoza (MM2349)... He wasn't only a fellow photo enthusiast, but he was also like a brother who believed in my photography talent. I'm very fortunate to have traveled with him and be his "wingman" on many road trips to shoot with models and hangout with friends. Much of my photography is influenced by Oliver, and I promised myself and his parents that I would continue doing my best in creating art through my camera.
