About Me

A Creative Mind and Photographer based in Long beach ca, Daniel Vengoechea was born on june 2 1984

His passion for photography expanded at age 18 when he took classes Long beach city college in portrait photography and studio and lighting photography.

Never wanting to do the normal photography of landscape or sit down and pose Daniel felt ppl spoke to him more and keep going from there his photographs capture the emotion and joy of the moment .

quote- "This is a hobby for me its relaxing to me and a great way to step into my own mind and show what im feeling in photographs"

I believe that our sense of experience is built up over time - a
composite of many short-term events. For example, if you meet someone
for the first time, your impression of that person is not a snapshot in
your mind of the first time you saw that person, but rather a portrait
you have assembled from many separate moments. Each time that person
exhibits a new facial expression or hand gesture, you add that to your
impression of who that person is. Your image of that person - how you
feel about that person -- is formed over time, rather than upon a single
expression or gesture.

Likewise, I believe that our impression of the world is based upon our
total experience. For example, the ocean has always made me feel calm,
relaxed, and contented. If I were to take an instantaneous snapshot of
the ocean, the photo would include waves with jagged edges, salt spray,
and foam. This type of image does not make me feel calm - it does not
represent how the ocean makes me feel as I stare out over the water. What
I am responding to is the underlying, fundamental form of the ocean, its
vast expansiveness and the strong line of the horizon, both of which are
very stable, calming forms.

With this series of images I have used the camera as a scientific
instrument, the way a biologist might use a microscope or an astronomer a
telescope, to reveal what is felt but often unseen.
