completely shot on mobile.
I am very excited to announce my new creative endeavor, Ludique Magazine.
It will be a mobile photography magazine that showcases photographers from around the world and sheds light on the growing power of photography through people's mobile devices. The first issue will be posted at the end of the month on 1.31.13 and will follow suit each month, with a new issue always being released on the last day (of the month).
For now, you can check out the LAUNCH PAGE (click here) - this is where you will get a glimpse into our vision. There, you will also find links to all our social media accounts and be able signup for our newsletter. If you want to get updates, sneak peeks, and enter contests for the magazine then please sign up or follow one of our social media accounts!
I am the head of this project but am working closely with a very solid team of artistically-inclined friends: Teo Almonte, Dondre Green, Kevin De Los Santos, and Leo Gonzalez.

366 - The End
This last image represents how fast the year went and how much of a blur it would have been if not for my photos to capture the moments and life around me. I can't believe I'm writing the description for my final 366 photo right now. It's done. It's completed. It feels like I just started it yesterday, but as someone recently told me: "it feels like you've been working on this for 5 years." The inspiration to start this project came from seeing other 365 projects from great friends and fellow photographers like SNAPPS, Young CB, Connor Surdi, and more (by the way, normally the project is a 365 but this year was a leap year, hence it being a 366). At first, I was a little worried that it would maybe force some shots too much. As I found out, it did force them - but not in the way I was concerned about. Instead, it forced me to get photos that I otherwise would not have captured. I'm sure of it. Although this was one of the hardest projects I've ever done, it was the most rewarding. It was not always easy to get a shot of the day, especially the times where I would have classes and homework take up the majority of my day. However, even on days like that I made it work. It pushed my drive and my eye further to capture stronger and stronger images every day.
I want to thank all of you for your support during the project. I really enjoyed getting feedback from you guys + gals during the weekly recap's and anytime else. Thank you and hope you enjoyed viewing this project as much as I did making it.
