(voice over / cinematography U.S + Rio) first started taking pictures after getting a Kodak camera on his 14th birthday. Twenty years later, he found himself as excited and inspired about photography as that first day he pulled that camera out of its box. Photography has opened his eyes to the beauty that exists everywhere, and he tries to pass that on in the images he takes. Capturing those moments and emotions in time is the reason he gets up every day and he can’t wait to see what lies ahead.
