|This work of mine was inspired by Brian, this was one of my first creative digital processing, learning always, I'll never be done learning and that's why I love what I do, thank you Brian|
Brian was my inspiration when I did that piece in Buenos Aires Argentina many years ago, Brian had such an impact on my creativity development, it's hard to express it with word, thank you Brian.
When I decided to get back to photography in 2006, and enrolled in an online class with UK School of Photography I had no idea that I will have such an opportunity, I didn't start the class with Brian, don't remember the other instructor name, the only things I remember about her were her harsh remarks, I was going to quit the class when I got an email letting me know that I was transfer to another instructor, his name Brian Swinyard that change my life, he was a real inspiration a great motivator and passionate photographer. Brian helped me in defining my vision, understanding how to transfer it into my photography, how to let go, to refine my own style!
Photography became an extension of my vision and creativity a way to exteriorise and express who I am and how I feel.
