All right so...
I am from Costa Rica, I studied psichology for about 2 years until photography changed my life.
I didn{t really reallized before that I loved Photography so much; ever since I was a kid I remember I used to play with a small canon analog camera; i loved the mechanism, the shutter, the sound, the I loved that.
Then I grew and I remeber how passionate I was for video and digital photography, but I never really saw a professional career on it.
I was always looking for different angles, exposures, etc; of course I had NO idea of what I was doing LOL.

Later, after I dropped psichology, i decided I wanted something like graphic design. I had a lot of ideas in my mind, a lot creativity that I wanted to let out my head.

So...finally...I chose photography and at the beginning I wasn't even sure on how I was supposed to make a living out of it. I thought: man...the only thing that I can do with this is to have a studio and shoot for the typical VISA, passport or driver´s license photos. LOL...I was so ignorant...

After I realized that there was a lot of potential on photography, i read a lot, practiced a lot and went to college.
College was frustrating...I remember that every class I attended was about something I read before or did before!
And so...I decided to drop college and be on my own.
I now have a year shooting, I am NOT a pro and I still have a long way to go but, I am getting better every day.
Yes, I suck a lot most of the times, but even Bresson said that your first 10000 pictures will be your worst.
I am working on my creativity and building my portfolio.
I dream of being better everyday and have magazine covers :)
I dream of traveling around the world with my camera and then I want to remember my journeys when I get older :)

Yes, I will make it, and it is not arrogance, I just believe in myself.

PS: sorry about the typos and sorry about the language barrier :)

Namaste, blessings!
