While graphic design was the catalyst to what got me into Blacklight Propaganda, my main focus has shifted towards photography, more specifically automotive photography. I was introduced to Photoshop around 2004 as I went through school; always manipulating photos and creating new designs for fun. In our last year of high school, Santiago and I noticed that we had a similar passion for graphic design and we established Blacklight Propaganda. Soon after we graduated, (not having much to do during the summer) I started going out to take pictures of our cars for fun with a DSLR borrowed from my father. Just as my graphic design, I delved far into research on how to finesse my techniques and learn new ones. What you see today is the product of that. I love being able to bring my passion for cars and my passion for photography and design together and create something unique. We have big plans for the future and will continue to evolve as we introduce new content and bring in new people to the Blacklight Propaganda family.
My primary “focus”, or what I enjoy doing and find myself doing the most of, is taking photos and filming. Occasionally I will find myself doing some small graphic design work such as: logos, business cards, flyers, etc. for personal use and sometimes commercial. The photography/videography industry jumped out at me from being in the car scene. I followed many people within the car scene that did photo/video work and always looked at/watched their content and it’s something that really interested me. Photography/videography is a hobby of mine and it’s something that I love doing. Always learning new things each and every day, pointing and shooting everything (literally, everything.), and meeting new people along the way is what truly makes me happy!
