I started Photography When I was very young, inspired by Pictures That my father drank when he was a preacher. When I was 17, my mom gave me a beautiful Minolta X700 and a world I never felt, starting with putting the film on the camera. Mechanics And the measure of light until I realized that there was a new way of expressing in front of me Ideas And mine Emotions.

I remember I hurt a lot Rolls Until I got my first picture and it was one Deer Appeared in front of me in that forest. Maybe it was a sign to me that I would be attached to it Nature Forever.

The first Mountain That I was able to climb Kayambe volcano. I remember them for a long time Walking at night And look They. I was amazed and excited to tread on new territory for me. It was almost like walking on another planet, like a baby in an amusement park. And, at the same time, I felt a lot of fear about not being able to reach Summit Or have Fitness Get on me

The minutes passed slowly as dawn broke Horizon The sun gave us WelcomeAlmost like telling us “I’m here, don’t worry, I’m going to give you warmth and shelter”.

After 6 hours of climbing, tired body, d Heavy breathing Y. Tears In sight, we reach the summit. It was something I will never forget in my life; I felt overwhelmed, I cried, laughed and screamed like a baby. We all embrace and Silence We just saw the scene and felt so lucky to be in that place.
So I decided that what I really needed to do was learn how to do it right Photography With Emotions On the side of the hill.
