Adam Ghahate, 21, Born and raised in San Diego California. Self taught on film and Grossmont Community College Photography Major.

"I was a musician for 8 years, on to be a music major, before picking up a camera. In October 2010 I hit some creative walls musically and decided to take a break. Picked up a 35mm slr out of boredom and need to be creative and I've been hooked ever since. Technically I am self taught, and for me college is a place to get critique, shooting assignments, and develop film for free. I photograph everything, starting from street photography and watching people I moved to portraiture, landscapes, and the occasional still life. Using my camera to scratch my creative itch and pay rent shooting whatever I can, that I can put my own stamp on. Weddings, fashion, portrait and the occasional commercial work. My inspiration is everything, what I see, hear, feel, read, want, dream of, afraid of, everything speaks to me. I am never without at least 2 cameras. I capture what is around me, not only to document, but to speak of something about myself, and my thoughts and feelings on what I am photographing. I really feel that my landscapes are my most soulful images, they say what I want them to say about myself without a human form or face."

"I was never good at communicating, through speaking or writing. In a lot of ways I feel music and photography are my only methods of effective communication."

"The bulk of my work is portraiture. Whether it be fine art, fashion, or editorial, photographing people is my thing, which is why there really isn't any cohesiveness or unity among my photos other than that there are people in them. Because, I don't specialize in fashion or fine art or portraiture, I specialize in photographing people. The way I see it, there is not a face on this earth without a story. My mission is to tell that story. If I can do that, then I am happy, and that's all I ever want to be."
