Growing up, I spent a lot of time in front of the television, whether it was playing video games or watching cartoons. My earliest memory that I can recall wanting to make my own video was when I took my parent’s camcorder and started to do stop-motion animation with my Transformer toys.

But it wasn’t until I graduated high school that I decided to pursue video production. That’s when I applied to go to The Art Institute of Seattle. My interest was to focus on cinematography but as school progressed, I found myself enjoying post production more than shooting, specifically editing and motion graphics.

I always felt like a creative individual, always sketching and drawing, taking advantage of art classes in school and even an entrepreneur class. It gave me a lot of options but one thing that really drew my interest was photography. There’s nothing more priceless than capturing a moment in time that can never be recreated again.

When I graduated from the Art Institute, I got my first real high end digital camera which I used until 2009 when I got a Canon DSLR. I learned as much as I could about the camera and the lenses to help me create beautiful images, that’s when I started Rodel Studios in September 2009. I had a lot of support from my family and friends and continue to have their support. They have been my biggest fans and strongest advocates for helping me develop my portfolio and grow my business.

I’m lucky and blessed to have the ability to do what I enjoy doing and would love the opportunity to share and capture your memories with you. If you like what I’m about and want to see my work, I encourage you to browse my site and let me know what you think of my photography. Any feedback is much appreciated.

Lastly, thank you for taking the time to get to know me and I hope I get an opportunity to get to know you as well.
