Hi, my name's Amado, and I like to create photographs.  I'm a son, a husband, a father, and I've been told that I'm pretty good with a camera.  My beautiful wife, and 4 children, mean the world to me and they are one of the main reasons I picked up a camera in the first place.

I grew up playing baseball and very much involved in the performing arts.  When I wasn't on the baseball diamond, I felt most at home with a sheet of music in front of me.  I'll be the first to admit that I was a band and choir geek. My interest in photography started after high school when I joined the U.S. Navy.  While on deployment aboard U.S.S. Carl Vinson, a good friend of mine introduced me to fine art photography.  From that point on I started taking a closer look at the art of photography and started figuring out how it all actually works.

In 2009 I picked up my first DSLR camera and I was off to the races!  A whole new world opened up to me and I was hooked.  I learned how to see light differently and get it to do what I want it to do.  I continue to learn more every day, and every time I'm photographing people.  I love taking pictures and helping others along the way.  So if you're interested in getting together for a quick photoshoot, or for some photography talk, don't hesitate to give me a call, or send me an email.
