Can you tell us about why you got deep into this hobby and community?
"I started collecting shoes when I was in junior high school, I was amazed at the design, effort and most especially the stories behind the shoe.
Then whenever I would buy a sneaker, I would take a picture of it using my phone and directly upload it to my facebook.
Few weeks later, this is where I discovered instagram wherein the sneaker and photography is insane. At that time I didn’t know about photography but my parents bought me a camera back then. I started learning photography for a year. I was inspired and that gave me the motivation to put more effort into photography. Photography isn’t hard especially when you are passionate and love what you do. Nowadays, everyone can be a photographer, it doesn’t matter what gear you have whether it’s an iPhone or a $3000 camera.
Going back, one of my archived photos was liked on instagram by Crep Protect and I didn’t accept it at all because of all instagram users tagging them everyday. After that, I decided to take photography seriously. I said to myself, “ I want my pictures to be featured on different instagram accounts. “ it took my photos for a while to be featured and I started changing my mentality, I want to focus on what I do and what I create. What matters is the final result of the photo. I don't care if no one reacts or shares it. The important thing is to love what you do, continue and what you’re passionate about. Here I am grinding for what pleases me and I’m so thankful for all the support. I won’t let you guys down. Let’s strive for greatness."
