he pictures I took in the Atacama Desert in Chile are very important to me. It was my first international trip, but besides that, you can photograph wildlife in their natural habitat, and the huge number of active and inactive volcanoes is very special. The photos I took in Amsterdam are also very important as it is totally different from Chile. I went from desert landscapes to totally urban landscapes full of people, cars, bikes, and many other things.
When I was 16 I applied for a job at Circuit City (rest in peace). I thought I would become a cashier but they decided to put me in the computer/photography department of the store. This was my first introduction to photography, having to learn the cameras inside and out in order to sell them. This is also around the time I scraped together enough overtime cash to buy my first camera, the Canon Rebel XTI. May this also be a lesson that anyone working in the computer or photography department section of an electronics store most likely has no idea what’s going on.
