He studied photography under William Hendricks at Ventura College, during which time he was the recipient of the Future Award for creativity in photography. He continued his studies at California University Channel Islands and received his B.A. in History. History provided an eye to understanding the past and a further awareness of where the world is today. Bailon’s biggest inspiration is life, observing the world around him without pretense.
