ABOUT ALVIN

Los Angeles creative.

To describe myself in one sentence— I am a Los Angeles creative who is passionate about creating, boxing, and riding motorcycles.

My journey as a photographer started on my iPhone. My sister always nagged at me for taking terrible photos of her on her phone, so I was determined to improve. Through practice and even more nagging, I only made progress in taking photos. Soon, my iPhone photography gained positive attention online, opening opportunities for me to work with models and getting booked for shoots. I started investing in professional gear and here I am now!

Fun fact: prior to transferring to Texas Tech, I got to play on the Men's Football team for Kansas Wesleyan University. I played superback, a running back + receiver hybrid.

CREATIVES

Visual creatives through art and science.

My photography and videography workflows are heavily driven by my previous design experience and family background.  

In the past years, I have professionally pursued website design and content design. Through designing websites and contents, I always followed the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Stupid) theory. 

My family has been heavily invested in the fashion industry in Los Angeles for the past 30+ years. Growing up, my family always preached The Rule of Thirds: no more than three different textiles, three different colors, and three different accessories in your outfit.

I use the two lessons I learned to compose my photos + videos and take an artistic approach to create a unique shot, while taking a scientific approach to attract the human eye.

HOBBIES

Cybersecurity. Boxing. Motorcycles.

Outside of my creative journey, I am heavily invested in cybersecurity, boxing, and motorcycles. Recently, I held a cybersecurity role with one of the largest hospitals in the U.S., protecting over 1.3 million patients and ensuring that their health records and equipment are secured from malicious hackers. I have been boxing since I was 15 and am hoping to obtain my license for a fight in California before I am too old.
