As a Photographer:
I'm a passionate young artist from Costa Rica. I take pictures of every place I go. I started taking pictures when I was little (around 10 years old), I just wanted to press the button and listen to the camera. I wouldn't stop bothering my parents until they allowed me to take the picture.
I learned everything I know little by little, by myself, most of the time by trial and error. Every time I can, I read about photography and put into practice my new knowledge. Photography is my hobby; I take pictures when I want to and of what I want to, I think that is why I enjoy it so much.
I've been lucky enough to travel around the world to more than 100 locations/cities, always making sure of carrying a camera with me. Now I have a portfolio of more than 3000 pictures (and growing), featuring different cultures, sceneries and emotions.
I have done several photo exhibitions, some of the main ones are:
I have created some photography books, most of them for personal use. I just love the way my photos look when printed on paper.
Now I want to try to share some of my basic knowledge on this website. I am not a teacher, let alone an expert, but I do believe that I have some useful information that others can benefit from.
Here is a link to an Spanish interview that was feature in a Costa Rican web magazine.
As a Person:
I am constantly trying to grow as a individual, and looking for ways to make this world a better place. And so, enjoying every bit of this world and living the present with no regrets.
Thanks to photography, I started looking at the world in a different way. It keeps me in the present and always conscious of my surroundings... I don't want to let important things pass by.
I live my life according to what I believe is right and not according to what others tell me is right. My acts are the result of understanding the outcome of a behavior, and not an automatic response to the environment/society. Always on the look for being amazed, I try not to live a routine. I believe beauty is relative and it exists in the everyday's little details.
