5. Who are some notable photographers that you learned from?

Most of what I know is self-taught as I never really went to photography school, but that’s not to say I haven’t learned from anyone. I learned from my dad who got me into photography, from art teachers in school, after school art programs, photo books, seeing the works of other photographers and peers, online and in person. Picking up a camera at a relatively young age, living in the city, and taking it out with me as much as I could helped me pick up street photography.

To this day, I am still learning so much and my style and approach to street photography has gone through so many phases/styles. Recently I’ve been playing close attention to the styles of old time greats like Harry Gruyaert, Ernst Haas, and Saul Leiter. I really like their romantic, painterly inspired take on city life and it’s something I’ve been exploring a lot in my recent work.
