First off, I wanna say thanks for coming to this page (whether by accident or purpose).
My names Alexander Tat. I'm the owner and photographer of TicTatphoToes. I'm also a college student working towards a business managements degree with a discipline in the consumer technology field. I've always been interested in the newest technology coming out. I love discovering all that makes technology great (and not so great), and how we can utilize it in our lives without it consuming us.
My love for photography was first sparked when I was in middle school. My father had just gotten a new Nikon D40 camera with a 18mm-55mm kit lens. What also kindled the flames was my love for cars. I was always so amazed by automotive photography. Super defined car with a blurred background. Another influence would be my high school photography teacher; Mr. Ian Danielson.
I’d be so bold as to say, he was one of the best teachers ever. He taught us photography from the ground up. From the basics like the 1/3 rule, to how to develop film. Being able to learn the history of how it started and how much consideration it took for each photo taken gave me a deeper appreciation for each photo that is “developed” now.
Lastly, the greatest influence would have to be the one who gave me this amazing passion; God the Father. Without him, I would not have this passion. He’s given me an opportunity to capture a small glimpse of the beauty that God sees in His creation. I would not be who I am now, if it weren't for Him. I'm a Son of God first, all else comes second. :)
