Leonardo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped improve the quality of my end product, which will help attract new clients.
I'm fortunate and proud to have come from a very artistic background. Both my parents were painters, who influenced my artistic nature and eye for composition. For this I'm grateful because it has allowed me to develop myself as a photographer. I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA where I was constantly surrounded by metropolitan beauty. After high school, my family relocated to Mexico, where I became exposed to more natural beauty as we traveled around. Living in San Francisco and Mexico taught me to appreciate the beauty of two completely different cultures, lifestyles and people. During this time, I was continually driven to use Mexico's vibrant atmosphere as a setting for my hobby in photography. Those images I captured changed the way I looked at this craft of mine. Eventually, I realized I could turn my passion into a career and ultimately led me to start my own photography business.
