  • First and foremost – whom can you name as the best photographer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico? :)

    There are some really good photographers here, each one with it's own style.

  • Are you photogenic?

    I usually look better on the othe side of the camera haha

  • How did you get in the photography industry?

    Had the opportunity to work with a company that does lifestyle photography, after a year I jumped to wedding photography with them and 1 year later I decided to work by myself.

  • What are the most important components of a good photo in your opinion?

    Good lightning, being able to control the light is key.

  • Do you love traveling?

    Of course, who doesn't! That's actually what approached me to photography! You will see a lot of traveling photos as well on my social media.

  • What do you like most about your profession?

    For the wedding couple there's always the doubt of how are the photos going to be, but looking at their reaction and excitement once they see them it's one of things to feel thankful for.

  • What do you like least about your profession?

    Bridezillas haha or sometimes the maid of honor. I know, I know; they want everything to be perfect on the big day, but hey, you have to trust me on this one, let the art behind the lenses flow!

  • What will be the future of photography?

    Hopefully better and better photographs, there's a little bit of doubt about photography and the upcoming technology, but I think the artsy element it's always going to be human, no matter what.

  • What is special in the photography genre you specialise at?

    It's more intimate, you get to know real people and as a photographer you have to become one with the wedding itself. Achieve that connection with groom and bride and also the guests.

  • How do you handle criticism?

    Photography as an art has been always very subjective, but there's something no one can deny; a good photo is a good photo! Even if you can't explain it. Also in photography you never stop learning, so I don't take criticism too serious, just take the best part of it and forget the rest!

  • Are there any trends in photography?

    Yes, the same as any other style of photography or even art; there's always gonna be tendencies, some may follow them, some may not and some may create them.

  • What should be the criteria for a customer to choose a photographer?

    Read the bio, see their pictures and see if you really feel identified with that specific photographer, remember; is the best day of your life!

  • What things are to be avoided when shooting?

    Not to be open to suggestions, I've seen a lot of photographers mounted on their egos, shooting their own style not paying attention to what the couple wants! Big mistake!

  • What details that usually pass unnoticed can a photographer notice?

    It's hard to be in different places at the time, it's always good to count on a second camera to get that little details that can be missed for a bit of a sec while doing the "important shot".

  • What influences the value of a photo? What are its elements?

    Laughs, reactions, true feelings, a good photographer is able to capture the essence of the moment!

  • What person can be the symbol of the 21st century in your opinion?

    We live in an era of super individualism, anyone doing a little bit something for the goodness of everyone is a symbol!

  • Who do you want to take photos of?

    Any couple in the search of genuine photographs, that ones that comes easy for everyone as there's a connection between couple and photographer.

  • Do you have any professional taboos?

    Photoshop. To make a photograph look the way it is "supposed to be" instead of showing the real thing!

  • Who would you like to shoot with?

    I think Jim Carrey is one of the most interesting persons in the world, for me he sees life through different eyes than the average person.

  • What do you worry about, and why?

    Sometimes technology can play tricks on you or even betray you, but as long as you are well prepared, there's nothing to worry about.

  • What is the most impressive moment in your life?

    The present! I've always been to "easy going" to worry about the past, or future, just try to relax and enjoy the moment!

  • If you were a cartoon, book or movie character, who would you be and why?

    Probably a captain of sci-fi movie, imagine to see all the stars and constellations and galaxies through that perspective.

  • Who inspires you in your life and why?

    Michael O'neill is one of my favorite photographers, he have had such amazing opportunities to shot super interesting people like Orson Welles, Steve Jobs, Scorsese and many Master Yoguis.

  • How do you define success? How do you measure it?

    Success is achieve your purpose, one step at a time. That your couples likes and thank for your work, that's how you know you've made it correctly!

  • Would you rather be liked or respected?

    It's easy to get liked, but not that easy to get respected. So to achieve that is the measure of it.

  • When you're going to travel, what do you take with you and why?

    My camera, is part of the essentials! Like; wallet, keys, camera, cellphone, right?

  • Is there anything among your gadgets that you wish you haven't bought? Why?

    Not a single one, I do a lot of research before buying anything, smart purchases!

  • How do you educate yourself to take better pictures?

    Getting inspired by other photographer's work and some self-criticism.

  • What is the one thing you wish you knew when you started taking photos?

    How to pay taxes! Hahaha isn't this one of the things that they never teach in school and are so necessary for the adult life?

  • What do you want to say with your photographs?

    "I was the happiest person that day" is what I like for my clients to feel when they see their pictures.

  • What motivates you to continue taking pictures?

    Trying to get everyday, improving my style, get happier clients.

  • Should your parents have been more or less strict?

    As kids we never truly understand why our parents do the things they do. And then one day the phrase "you will understand when you are older" makes sense.

  • If you could go back in time, what would you do differently?

    Probably being more risky in certain moments of my life but I'm pretty happy and thankful for where life has get me to.

  • What about life on other planets?

    I think it's very selfish to think that we are the only ones in such a big universe.

  • What do you do in your spare time?

    I see a loooot of movies, I like to analyze the photo, the lighting, the music, also I'm a lo into coffe culture which is really interesting.

  • What's the side of you that the public never sees?

    I think as myself as a truth person. I don't think I have a dark side or anything like that, what you see is what I am!

  • When are you completely satisfied with your work?

    I'm pretty satisfied with it most of the time, but there's always that little something that can be done better, but being conscious about is what allows us to get better.

  • Do you believe in the traditional roles for men and women?

    Love is love right?

  • Do you make friends easily?

    Yessss! In weddings I like to think I am just another guest but with responsabilities haha.

  • Where would you like to live?

    By the beach, defenitely! "En el mar la vida es más sabrosa" is a saying we have in México which could be translated to "Life is better by the sea".

  • What's the stupidest thing you've ever agreed to do?

    I once was asked (I would say forced) to dance part of the vals with the bride as the brother ran away to the bathroom. The family was super funny and it was a good memories for everyone I guess.

  • Is there life after marriage?

    Yes! party never ends!

  • Do you like dogs or cats?

    I like both, but I would say I'm more a dog person, even if I don't own one!

  • The best thing in life is:

    Family and friends! and coffe! What would life be without them, right?

  • The most annoying thing in life is:

    Did I already say how much I hate to get my taxes done?

  • Is there anything around you that you would like to change?

    I would like people to be more conscious about the environment!

  • If you are called to shoot a movie, what genre will it be?

    Action genre of course, it must be completely fun!
