Eyal Nahmias, Santa Barbara , CA Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement I am a freelance photographer with a passion for travel, nature and underwater photography. I remember getting my first Diana camera at the age of 9, and I've been hooked ever since. I graduated Brooks Institute of Photography in 1988 with a B.A. in photography, majoring in color and commercial photography. For me photography is a way to fully express what I feel and to convey my impressions of the world around me.. I started shooting digital about 3 years ago, so the majority of my work is still in slides and negative and I have a huge task of transferring them to digital formats.. I love to meet new photographers and be inspired by new ideas and approaches. Feel free to give me your input and thoughts.
