My cheap(est) camera is a disposable Kodak camera, loading it with a Kodak Gold ISO 800 film. I also use a Nikon F60 with Nikkor 50 mm 1.4 lens using various expired films with it.
What I love about working with disposable cameras is that you can grasp the moment quickly and freely, pointing and shooting. With my F60 I have to do eye-metering, set my camera and focus to get better quality and bokeh.
I started taking pictures when I was 13 years old. But it was when I was 16 years old that my father gave me an Exacta Varex IIa that I started exploring with black and white films at first. After that, the digital revolution came in and it was a little bit disturbing to get familiar with it at first. Eventually I got used to it, I started my career as a fashion photographer, worked at photo production companies and for advertising and fashion photographers as a light and digital assistant in Buenos Aires and abroad. Currently I work as a fashion photographer and digital retoucher. I also teach photography.
When I started out, I didn't have everything people think you need to have to be a photographer. So I started experimenting with what's available for me at that time. At first, with film cameras I inherited from my family. When I finally got a Nikon DSLR, I only had natural light to work with, so that's where I really learned from. It would took a lot of time to get to studios and all those hilarious stuff that's why I still prefer going back to the basics when doing my work.
The subjects of my photography are people with a unique style. Those that comes from the minorities, with guts to make a statement with the way they look.
