Hello, eye am Adapt! I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California. By definition, a photographer is: “A person who takes photography, especially as a job”. So how do I separate myself as somebody more than just a guy with a DSLR? Well, photography delves much deeper than just snapping nice looking shots; when I take a picture, I do my best to encapsulate a memory. Being in the moment is something I take pride in - whether it’s doing yoga, meditating, or even performing as a DJ, I’ve always found a way to enjoy life at it’s fullest when I stay present in the moment. Being a photographer has allowed me to do just that, and even tested my ability to do so. Those countless hours I’ve spent behind a tripod just waiting for the right amount of cars to drive by for long exposures, or the wind to finally settle down for a portrait, pushed me to appreciate every second I put into getting the perfect image. As annoying as these things can be to others, they’re nuances in photography that bring me both a fulfilling, and therapeutic experience. Because whether it’s in a lotus position, or it’s in a bustling street of speeding cars, I find a way to reach inner peace. In a way, photography has embedded itself into my life to manifest itself into something much more than a hobby. As a man, I pride myself on living with no regrets, loving with no boundaries, being kind as often as possible, judging less, holding no anger, and always being grateful for the life that has been given to us all. When I pick up that camera, I treat every shoot with the same tenacity, spontaneity, passion, and zen that I treat life as. Thank you for taking the time to read this, much love and blessings to all!
