#19 Magdalena Studio
I was born in Chicago and raised in Southern California, I am a husband, father of two and a photographer and digital artist. A main driving force in my desire to create is travel. It has been a huge influence in my creative life. The people, the places, and the myriad of differences between them, were intimately involved in my love affair with photography.
I go where the wind and fate take me, especially throughout the Pacific Northwest, always with an eye on unsuspecting moments that can be captured through my lens and brought to vivid life via digital means.
Another huge influence are color and texture. Both can convey a time, a place and a feeling. I have an overwhelming need to keep them as very close and personal friends of mine.
Along with the actual capture, I’m in my happy place when manipulating images using different textures, varying tones, filters and degrees of saturation and vibrance.
