Digging deeper

So I have decided to dig deeper and get back to the basic reason why I fell in love with photography, documenting and exploring the human experience through my lens.

I have been reflecting on all the experiences of my life and coming up with specific topics I would like to bring to you in my photographs. Stay tuned...

So all of you are wondering....who the heck is NYPhotoshoot Photography?

My name is Christina Martinez.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.
My love affair with photography began at the age of 17 while studying at Fashion Industries high school. Inspired by New York City's skyline and the millions of chances to capture all the wonderful traits of this city and it's inhabitants. I began working professionally as a freelance photographer five years ago when I met my husband. He inspired me to pursue my career and so that others could view the world through my photos.

I have always worked as a 9-5er in Manhattan. Pencil pushing job that just seemed unsatisfying. Once I picked up a camera again I was hooked. All of us needs something to be passionate about in order to feel like our lives mean something, for us to leave our mark. Photography is my calling.

Hopefully you will follow me on this journey and love my photos. I want to know how they make you feel, so don't be shy to tell me.
