Ever since I was a kid I've been in touch with nature, with the wonderful Outdoors.

I remember well when my parents used to take us to the beach, to the desert, or near the river bend, and we would play for hours, surrounded by nothing but beauty. Originally born in Lima-Peru, it wasn't until I was almost 23 years old that I came to the United States, and it is here where, with lots of sweat and tears, I was able to little by little achieve what is called the American Dream. 

It is now, 28 years later, that I'm able to pursue hobbies that back then were simply dreams.... and Photography is definitely one of them. While I was always interested, it is not until the last 3-4 years that I've been taking it seriously, learning about composition and better post-processing techniques by reading and testing for countless hours.... 

I simply love to be able get outside and shoot Wildlife, Landscapes, Portraits and from time to time some Special Events.

My current equipment is composed of a Canon 6D DSLR,, a Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens, a Canon 70-200 f/4L lens, a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens, a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens and a Tamron 150-600mm f/5.6 lens. I use Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 for editing, always trying to keep my images as true as possible to my vision at the moment of capture....

Photography is a never-ending learning curve, in which we are either reading a plethora of books, watching training videos and/or collaborating with fellow photographers.. It is a wonderful journey in which we manage to freeze time and collect all these treasures for later....

All of my work, except for my Portraits, is available for sale at the prices listed in my Pricing section.
