How it all began:
When I bought an old Canon AE1 in a pawn shop.

How he captures ideas:
I usually think about stories like scenes playing out in my head.

Creating to make something for himself or to convey
an idea to someone else?
I would say both. I’m always looking for a special feeling when I take my pictures. When I got it, I just want to spread this feeling to everyone open to it.
