Film is not dead.

Photo by Taylor Arthur (www.focuspace.photography)

My name is Mohammad Djauhari and I started my photographic adventure at a very young age. When I was 5, I fell in love with the mechanical sound of my father's Canon AE-1 Program camera and began photographing not long after. I taught myself the basics of photography and throughout the years, learned the more technical aspects from various established photographers.

While in Junior high I was given the nickname of "Q" because it was easier to pronounce and because Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered that year and since I, as well as my friends were "trekkies", Q just seemed logical and it has stuck ever since.

A "jack of all trades", my photographic style is photojournalistic, always looking for the story and conveying it through photographs. I have done wedding, commercial, fashion, portrait, street and journalism work on my own, as well as working with other photographers. My skills include Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro.

Currently, I am studying at Los Angeles Pierce College and working with its student publication The Roundup News, and have served as staff photographer/reporter, the photo editor, multimedia editor and The Bull Magazine as its Managing Editor.

My passion has always been the analog film format of photography and will continue to be my passion until I can no longer physically purchase film.
