I was born in Venezuela and moved to the United States in the early 80s. I now call sunny and tropical Miami my home and base of operations.
My journey to photography is one that found its destination late in life. I am a graduate of the University of Miami with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Not exactly a very 'artistic' field of study. My interest in photography was sparked by a casual Internet search about 10 years ago. I stumbled upon some beautiful landscape photos and started to wonder if I could do that. Started as a nature photographer but soon found that my strongest interest was people.
Photography for me is an outlet for creativity and stress. I specialize in natural light beauty photography and my studio is the environment around me. My aim is to capture the true essence and vulnerability of the beauty that we all have inside of us.
My work can be seen in the model portofolio pages of agencies like NEXT, MC2, Elite, Wilhelmina, FORD, and others. As well as several magazines like IMPOSTOR, Nouveau, EDITORIAL, Style-ology and Glass Book.
I still haven't shot a decent landscape...
