Here's how and why I got into photogaphy
I picked up a camera as a teenager back in high school. At the time, I photographed everything from landscapes near my families ranch, static subjects and then of course my girlfriend. It wasn't until I understood what commercial / advertising photography was, that I was drawn to go to school for it and make this thing a career.
After my education, I began to assist a variety of photographers in various backgrounds to learn the ropes and find my niche. Before long, I realized that photographing people was my given talent, but my passion drove me to put love into making everything I saw look beautiful or as I truly feel . . . . . "everything is beautiful, it just needs to be captured at the right angle and light".
Making friends, creating worthwhile images and having fun is why I do photography. Oh . . . . and what do I do on my spare time? Hang out with my wife, my family, got to the movies, binge watch on netflix and of course . . . I carry a camera. And. . . . . almost forgot, yes . . . . my given name is Monico. It's a family name.
