I feel an immense sense of gratitude for the incredible opportunity to learn from two of the most talented photographers in their respective fields, Matt Armendariz and Deniz Durmus. Their mentorship has been invaluable in shaping my skills and understanding of food photography and product photography, respectively. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have been able to observe their craft and gain insight into their creative processes. I am deeply thankful for their guidance, support, and generosity in sharing their expertise with me, and I will always treasure the lessons and laughter (often at me) I experienced under their wings.
