Name: Mae Bagadiong
Country: United Arab Emirates
Intro: I've always been inclined towards visual arts... may it be photography, advertising, performance arts, theatre and interior design.

Ideas for photographs have always been one of those creative thoughts that keep me up at night. I initially tried my hand at drawing and painting... it wasn't for me. Too much work and I couldn't seem to control it well enough to get the result I quick as I prefer. I did pretty well in figure & portrait drawing though but it just didn't give me the freedom of expression I need.

Then, I came across desktop publishing, adobe photoshop and now, digital photography...

I get exactly what I want. I have more control over my work. I simply enjoy every bit of it.... even the tedious photoshop editing.

I don't mainly take pictures to please others... I take pictures to quench my thirst for creativity, to satisfy my imaginative tendencies and more so to express my inspirations and ideas.

I have so much to learn...
I doubt I will ever be a professional Photographer or even close... I just enjoy it whenever I can.

Constructive criticisms are always welcome.. They are the tools to learning new things.
