Hello, my name is Michael Grijalva. Photography has been my hobby for several years.

My initial interest started back in high school when I took a photography course. Everyone started on film cameras, so that was my first exposure to the photography world. Going from the initial shot, developing the film, and working in the dark room to finally get that exposed shot took a lot of work, but it gave me an appreciation for convienent digital photography can be.

When I went to college I did not practice my photography for several years. Upon
graduating with a degree in computer science I began working in Silicon Valley
as a software engineer. After a couple years the photography itch came back.

I currenty shoot with a Sony a6000 mirrorless camera. The small size makes it painless
to carry with me when I travel.
