How did I learn to become a Photographer?
I learned how to take pictures by working for several local professional photographers as their assistant, learning on the job, and by self-teaching through the aid of critique. Other than that, I have been refining my skills with a series of projects that I gain knowledge from, and apply what I've learned to commercial shoots.
