Currently, I am the Founder, Editor-in-Chief and Head Photographer for Mkovah Magazine www.Mkovah.com. An international affiliate of U.S. and Overseas publications. I am a Chicago native, with Black and Dominican heritage. I got my start in the world of photography late in life, but when the opportunity presented itself I dived completely head first. Trial and error became my instructor. Spending thousands of hours trying to understand and piece together a clean resemblance of a good shot. The greatest times were getting personal tutoring by other professionals whose work I found to be absolutely amazing. Overtime I learned and became comfortable with shooting just about anyone and anywhere. Keeping in mind that I am only as good as my last shot keeps me humble and inspired to improve and meet new challenges.
My philosophy is simple: Keep focused on your passions, build on your experiences and be an impact in the lives of others.
Photography is something I truly love, it's something that produces a change both in myself and my clients. In all my years and thousands of photo shoots, I have yet to find that complete satisfaction in just one shoot. All shoots give you the opportunity to understand the inner beauty, uniqueness and complexity of people. As a photographer and magazine publisher it's more than a simple click here or there. It is an opportunity to capture a moment in time. A moment never to be seen again unless through your lens.
