I am currently based in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Experienced in Photoshop and digital manipulation, as well as traditional techniques, such as black and white darkroom, 35mm SLR and medium format film cameras.
Also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
I was born in the U.S. and raised in Europe, spending most of my childhood in Spain, Portugal, England, and West Africa, as well as shorter stays in a few other countries. My father, a U.N. hydraulic engineer and professional playwright, and my mother, who worked for The New York Times, traveled extensively, exposing me to a rich and diverse cultural upbringing, which, undoubtedly, influenced my artistic style.
Returning to the US, I first lived in New York City, then in Los Angeles, eventually settling in South Florida, and went on to study film and literature at the University of Miami. I became interested in photography and in 1988 began my career photographing children, families, weddings and social events. A few years later, I expanded to ‘fine-art fashion’ and still lifes, as well as darkroom and hand tinting techniques.
I’m available to photograph commercials, photojournalism, engagements, weddings, social events, portraits, models, fashion, headshots, red carpet events, lifestyle, children, quinceañeras, or any other project you may have in mind.
