I love photography. It is all I can think about, morning, noon, and night. It embodies everything I stand for, everything I hope for and everything I live for. In Photography there is freedom. It is where I can be myself without inhibitions and limitations.
I am by nature a storyteller. I like to tell stories of the world around me. But words are not enough. It is through images I create and capture that I fully convey what is on my heart and mind. Being an introvert, photography is my words.
I was born and raised in the Philippines. I have a background in Physical Therapy and Theology and degree in Nursing and Philosophy.
My professional photography transitioned from a hobby to a career when I studied Philosophy and Theology in Australia. Living in the continent for seven years and being assigned from one place to another as a de facto Photographer and Graphics designer, it became a mishmash of rich experience within and outside my academic responsibilities. My favorite experience was my solo exploration of remote places in Australia and capturing its beauty under various weather conditions. This particular experience made me who I am today as a photographer.
I then moved to Los Angeles and worked in a newly established e-commerce department of one of the big diamond jewelry companies in the country where I mastered the art of e-commerce and product photography.
Determined to pursue my dream to become a full time photographer, I moved to New York City and finally had the courage to establish my own Photography Studio, “ROMP Studios”. Here, I delve into Headshots and Portraitures.
After a couple of years of being a Headshot and Portrait Photographer, I expanded my horizon by making it into Photojournalism, my first love in Photography.
I am to date a member of the National Press Photographers Association as a freelance journalist and a Corporate Headshot and Commercial Portrait photographer within the Queens and Brooklyn areas of New York City. I am also into Real-Estate and Landscape photography aside from my product photography stints.
My style of photography is very simple: happy, cozy, colorful and vibrant which can be described as fully human, fully alive. My style is to present the truthfulness of every photo as it is. The beauty of photography is in its truthfulness..
