Photography is a journey. A process of progression. Not everyone who picks up a camera would continue the quest of being a photographer. Not all have sustained the passion. Some stall, some strive and succeed. A few quickly find their niche, others spend years still looking for their own.
For Focus photographer Erick Mendiola, the journey started in street photography and by some twist of fate - or deserved luck - he jumped into the world of events. Today he is a sought-after wedding shooter, and recently put up an events company to better accommodate clients. The leap of faith has paid off, from hobbyist to pro, from the street to the confines of halls and hotels. Let's take a closer look at Erick's story as he answers questions about his photography crossover. Erick Mendiola is our featured member for November 2015.
