These are some photos taken by Dro Simoes.
Ever since I was in high school I have been interested in photography. Unfortunately, I never really had a good camera and only took film photos when I had the money to buy film for the camera I had received as a hand-me-down. It sucked because there were always moments I was dying to capture but I didn’t know how. I ended up focusing more on graphic design and programming. However, now that I’m able to afford my own photo gear, I went out and purchased some decent equipment to learn photography. I began by helping out when I was working for an Adult Entertainment company and I’m sure I bothered the hell out of the photographers with all of the questions I had about lighting and most of the time I just sat back and tried to soak up all of their knowledge and experience while helping get the set ready for a shoot.
Years Later, we’re blessed with the ability to watch tutorials on YouTube as well and I’ve began taking some really bad ass photos now that I understand how cameras and lighting works a lot better. I have had many friends in the past who have hired me to shoot their bands and models who’ve allowed me to shoot them for HXCM. In the process, I’ve come a long way. Ultimately though, I really enjoy shooting animals. My love for wildlife shows drastically when you view my facebook or Instagram account. You’ll quickly realize it by the amount of pet and wildlife photos I have featured in my posts.
