Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Angel, how would you best describe yourself?
Our readers would love to get to know you more Angel. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I'm currently enrolled at the University of Houston pursuing a career in Mechanical Engineering. I've always loved math and sciences, but I also have a passion for art and photography as it allows for creativity and freedom. I started photography as mean to release stress on my day to day basis, and thus far I love every step of the way.

Keep interviewing me!
What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Angel?
My goals for photography are simple; I want to continue meeting people and learn new styles of editing to create more dramatic compositions.
How do you communicate with people Angel? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I communicate very well with people despite considering myself as a very shy person. I'm very easy to talk to, patient, and keep an open mind to many situations.
If you had to do it over again, what would you change Angel?
I would have started taking photographs at a younger age. I had a camera but didn't use it because I didn't have "subjects", but now that I'm older I can see that you can get creative with any little thing you find.
Who is your hero Angel, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
I will have to say the friends I've had since highschool. The ones, who stuck around after graduating and constantly support my work, even when I was in my early stages and admittedly could have done much better work.
How important are creative education courses Angel? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
Asides from art in intermediate school, I haven't taken any creative courses. II can see how they could help develop someone's creativity, but I don't think they're necessary. Creativity comes from someone's imaginations and capabilities to make those ideas work.
Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
For photography, jus picks up the camera, any camera; it can be your phone and start taking pictures. Also, I like to limit myself to just a few a shots per photo session. This allows for me to think more about the composition instead of taking hundreds of pictures and just choosing the "best one".
Please add any photo credits for the photos you uploaded so that everybody can get recognised.
