I am a self-taught photographer born and raised in Tampa, Fl. My creative inclinations began with studying for (and obtaining) a bachelor’s degree in English literature and creative writing, as well as developing several short film projects that I wrote, directed and shot. With my background in writing and film, the transition to photography was easily accomplished. It was immediately clear that photography was an inherent strength. I decided to go beyond the simple process of shooting interesting subjects and quickly realized that photography does not stop at snapping the photo. Through post-production, I experimented with various digital manipulation techniques and quickly uncovered my own unique style of fine art photography. My ability to take simple, everyday shots and transform them into unique pieces of art garnered the attention of friends and associates. In no time, I realized that I didn’t want to merely take photographs—I wanted to create art.
In 2008, I launched ThreeNine Photography, a website and creative platform to promote my artwork. The name ThreeNine Photography was inspired by my nine year old son, Jalen Anthony Rodriguez, who shares my birthday of March 9th. Jalen has motivated me to work hard and become a better person, which in turn has made me a better artist. I believe that my singular vision of the world around me paired with clever control in editing distinguishes me from other artists.
