My name is Thomas Valenti. I turned twelve years old in the summer of 2012. Months prior, my grandfather planned a sight seeing trip with me to Alaska right around my birthday. I decided to learn photography with a manually operated dSLR camera so I could share my experience with others. I began to practice ahead of time and shoot anything I could get my eye on. While learning the inspiring journey of photography, I developed quite an eye for the world and how the simplest of things could be turned into eye catching works of art. I have always been known as a fast learner and a creative kid. This new hobby is just one of many in my talented reperetoire of things that I like to do. I hope you see the beauty in the images that are possibly very common and many people take for granted. This website shows the finest taste of what my eye sees. Enjoy.
P.S. I saved up and purchased a Nikon D7100. I have an 18-105mm and a 35mm lens. I'm saving up to buy additional lenses and accessories to further enhance my craft. Feel free to browse my galleries and purchase some pictures and other items if you want. It would help me save enough to purchase those additional items.
"Too many photographers try too hard. They try to lift photography into the realm of Art because they have an inferiority complex about their Craft. You and I would see more interesting photography if they would stop worrying, and instead, apply horse-sense to the problem of recording the look and feel of their own era." - Jessie Tarbox Beals
