Did you go to school for photography or was it something you picked up yourself?
I learned to develop my skills by reading a lot of books and tutorials from YouTube.

How did you get into it?
When I was in high school, I always admired the photographs that I saw on car magazines, which serves as my inspiration.

I like to shoot more urban settings, especially at night.
