An autistic photographer with a case of wanderlust…
From wanting to hide away in his room from the world to traveling halfway across country to climb the Rockies and take photos.
Drawing furniture and objects since I was in first grade, I always had a knack for art. This was something that I found passed on into my photography as I took photos in a photography course years back when I was getting my degrees in Graphics Design and Computer Animation.
It was only when I started taking photos with my phone while cycling did photography really sink its teeth in and never let go. It also helps having some inspiration while working as an intern at a wedding photography studio.
Back then I would have never thought I would not only have a career shift, but also such a change in mindset away from what I thought I would be able to do. More towards a life of adventure!
LIVING WITH ASPERGER’S SYNDROME
I have to admit, it wasn’t easy. Misunderstandings growing up and trying to adapt to life was quite a struggle. Being bullied by kids and adults alike in school. How some people think having autism is the equivalent of a doomed life that I use to adopt in my mind. I had moments throughout my life where I wondered why I bother to exist at all.
After a long period of feeling limited by my disability label, I got tired of it. I decided to no longer limit myself with such a self destructive mindset and will become more than the labels people place on me. I decided to turn my disability into an ability that can help others. Turning AUTISM into ARTISM.
A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
Thus I started a business, knowing the hardships I will face. I continued to developed my own methods for handling some of the autistic traits, in order to finish the job with the best results for my clients.
Using my photography to display the little things, whether that be the positive culture behind a business or the small gentle wildflower on the side of the road reminding us of the simple things. Even started doing more solo travels across the United States and beyond that is feature in my travel blog posts and vlogs on YouTube.
I want people to flip that perspective towards autistic traits as a gift to help others think outside the box instead of a curse.
With more and more people being recognized with being on the autistic spectrum, young and elderly, I bet you still have a lot of beliefs in the different myths behind it. Perhaps one on the silly notion of how limited we are?
