    Alexander Medina
    Alexander is a professional photographer who specialize in capturing special events, sports, portraits and landscapes. What sparked his interest in making a business was doing a onetime gig for CSUDH; it was to fulfill his 2021 graduation requirements to earn his BA in Digital Media Arts.

    The Gig was located in Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum; his job was to help with the museum's advertisements by taking photos and videos. Then edit them, so his boss can use them for his website. It turned out great, and his boss was pleased with the quality of the photos and videos he provided him at the time.

    After the experience, it made him want more gigs! Which led him to get more gigs and form a business.

    Furthermore, he's looking forward to hearing from his students.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea
