Persian by ethnicity, but 1st generation in the US; born, raised and currently live in NYC. I started learning photography on a manual Vivitar SLR and printing my own black and whites. I then moved on the Nikon P90 which is a single-lense manifold to teach myself digital photography. I have now moved on to a Nikon D5100 and Nikon D90. I'm still learning and continuing to learn with every snap of my camera. One habit I have picked up is simply walking around anywhere and everywhere with my camera in my bag because you just never really know what you might see! I am also taking portrait shots of people's pups on weekends at Vanity Pups Boutique in Bayside, Queens. Feel free to contact me for more information!
