Never give up on your dreams. I stand by these words, as they have played an important role in the development of my love for photography. I work hard for what I want and know personally that life is not always easy. Sometimes giving up seems like the best option. But this is not the case.

I have encountered many obstacles in life. In overcoming them, I have realized that there is more to life than instant gratifications and dollar signs.

Life is a gift. But more than that: its real.

And I strive to document it.

Because moments are worth living in.

I push myself to capture it all to better my talents. But mostly, I do it because it is what I love.
