To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of ‘Life.’ #WalterMitty #bridge #rawkbeez

"The most important thing a young photographer can do is learn how to see." A great book thus far, giving me perspective and vision on my work. Im a student of photography. #AnnieLeibovitz #alwaysastudent #masterculture

Most common question I get asked lately, “How did you get started in photography?”

I picked up the camera in November during a few weeks off of social media and shot non-stop. I was a film major in college shooting 35mm and 16mm but at the time I couldn’t recall the relation between ISO, shutter and f-stop. Thank you to countless photographers in the Bay Area that guided me.

Learned theory through interviews by Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, William Klein, Mary Ellen Mark, Diane Arbus, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jonathan Mannion and Trashhand. They gave me an insight on portraits, landscapes, documentary and street photography.

Sent COUNTLESS emails to agencies, models and people that I found interesting to work with, thank you to them all. A key learning for me on how the photography industry is on so many levels.

I still feel the theory is more important than the camera, if you don’t know what you are saying in the photo (right or wrong), why are you shooting it?

Im a student to photography.

One of my favorite parts of film photography is seeing the color range and comparing it to digital. Film still brings in more natural colors. Always a big thank you to @ysaperez for being an inspiration to shoot film. #glamorousbylauraaida #adidasoriginals #film #portra400 #rawkbeez
