ABOUT ME

I'm Soy: a father, husband, and cameraman. 

As the son of a DJ and photography enthusiast, my inclination towards the world of audio/visual creation was inevitable. I was born in Los Angeles, California, raised in Rancho Cucamonga, and currently reside in Orlando, FL. 

I was introduced to photography at a young age by my father who very rarely was caught without a camera in hand documenting the growth of his three sons. As I got older, I started toying around with my father's old cameras in an effort to learn how to capture priceless moments in time the same way he did when we were younger. 

I was given my first camera in high school: a Canon Powershot. With that point-and-shoot piece of equipment I filmed my first vlogs hanging with friends and also did my first photoshoots for some local dancers and models. My love for this medium only grew more over time, so much so that when I graduated from high school in 2007, I chose Film Production as my major when I got accepted into UCF. My time in college was short however as I spent more time making music, filming and shooting friends, and dancing than I did going to class. 

 

Eventually I dropped out of school and decided to pursue a career in the United States Air Force. During my six years in the service as crew chief for F-16s, I invested much of my earnings into buying professional DSLRs and other equipment I would need in order to advance my career as a  photographer on the civilian side.

 

After completing my six year commitment to the Air Force, I went full throttle into jumpstarting the life I've always wanted. I got married to my high school sweetheart, bought my first home, and shortly after my wife gave birth to our first son, Dominic. Now I am a full-time photographer/videographer, music junkie, and dance enthusiast. My approach to photography and videography has been heavily influenced by music in the sense that telling stories and documenting emotions is my number one priority whether it be at a wedding, portrait session, or event.
