Growing up, I always had the same answer to the ever present question - "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer - "A superstar!" Luckily, I realized early on in life that it was not going to work out quite that way.
I graduated from Cal State University, Fullerton, majoring in Photo Communications. I started working for my family's company, Carcano DJ (www.carcanodj.com), at 15 years old. After a couple of years of working in the industry, I was given the responsibility of organizing and planning all of the events and began going to weddings and events to help DJ and set up the lighting.
I began taking photos of the lighting at these events. Now, years later, I found what my passion is in life. Fortunately, I have been able to start making a career out of that passion.
I love capturing people's raw emotions in every form. Being able to stop a moment in time and save that memory for future generations is something that will always be exciting to me. Photographs are one of the only visual memories from an event. The eyes and smile of a person speak volumes in a photo. It is my job to bring those words to life through photography.
