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.

If you had to give one piece of advice to live by, what would it be?

Always remain curious, try to judge everything as pragmatically and objectively as possible, and let your heart and humanity decide in an unsolvable situation.

Being good at anything takes time and a fair amount of failure before anything else. Shooting every day to improve is a generic piece of advice we hear all the time that is actually extremely true, but rushing yourself or your projects is never worth it. Take your time, critique your work, improve, repeat. Being patient with yourself is actually so important to creating work that you’re proud of and that will stand the test of time.

I started to appreciate the freedom that reigns in nature, the diversity that it offers and also the tranquilizing effect it has on the mind. I learned to see the beauty in the darkness and moodiness that is quite present in my area. And learning to love where I live was really the cornerstone to a lot of positive change. There is beauty in every creation. Everywhere. And photography helps me to see this, no matter where I am. So I can say that growing up here was a challenge as long as I didn’t learn to love the culture, the mentality, and my surroundings. But now that I did that, I wouldn’t want to change it.
