Since little I’ve always been interested in ART but I started Photography basically when I was 14 years old, I started with an Olympus FE-210 with 7.1 Megapixels, I began working with self-portraits, I got to a time where I used to take 10 to 15 self-portraits every single day for like a year, by the end of 2007 my parents noticed I was really into this form of art, and they really supported me and bought my first DSRL which is a Nikon D40 and she is with me still. What I love mostly about my work is the fact that it speaks of many things; youth, experiment, fear as well as bravery, pure life and dirty streets. I go by the name of MFFPHOTOGRAPHY since I was 17; it’s like my own business name, from the beginning on taking small clients I’ve been able to demonstrate a strong understanding of how to develop the commercial side of my business to adequately deal with the high demand of my work. For me photographing people is a very difficult thing, many would say is the most difficult type of photography, because the model has to express a certain feeling and the photographer must capture it correctly, and I think somehow I’m able to do that. I love doing self portraitures, its not that I don’t do it anymore, I guess I’ve just found more creativity in using other models, self portraiture is hard, its time consuming and a real let down if you don’t obtain the picture you were hoping for, a lot of people call me narcissist, and its not that way you know? I love myself and I love what I do, and the mix of it it’s just amazing for me.

I’ve been featured plenty of times in many websites such as FotoCommunity, I’ve been published in online magazines such as Koko Magazine back in 2009. Also I got two photography recognitions by the Air Brush Technical Artist Kevin Gallagher in the Donegal Democrat Newspaper back in 2007.

Even today, I just keep relentlessly striving for perfection and I continue to develop and refine my portfolio.
