  Bio I am a Colombian mother of 3 beautiful children that moved to Miami in 1993…then I moved to Canada 7 years ago.  I never before had the opportunity to land my hands on a camera . The first time was when I met my husband when he taught me how to take pictures.  Having a camera in my hands for me is like writing a book… I love to capture the soul of  my images and express myself.  I love the idea of looking though the lens and being able to… Read More

Bio I came to the realization, upon leaving New York City, that life was happening too fast to be captured in words. As I was leaving, and going in the direction of Europe, I desperately needed to freeze-frame the world I was leaving, and the one ahead of me. I borrowed a camera and my upstairs neighbor, photographer and painter, Fred Bell, gave me a crash course in photography. It was a totally emotional decision. My actual field was music, the piano. I studied piano, loved to teach, and was working for… Read More

Bio The best pictures tell an unfinished story, with a sense of place or personality – questions of what, where, when, how. I like to think that my photography, at its core, is always about telling this story. Or more correctly, it’s about conveying a portion of the story, a small moment in someone’s life that makes us ask questions about who they are, what they’re doing, what they’re thinking, and how they ended up in the photo. The photographer’s craft includes both the narration (the story) and the curation (the moment of… Read More

In my daily life I work as an Online Marketing Manager and partly as a commercial self-employed photographer specialized in portrait and wedding photography with a touch of vintage. From my early childhood I traveled a lot thanks to my parents. That’s how I discovered the joy of photography, rather than buying souvenirs I captured them. I always focused on people rather then on landscapes. In 2013 I traveled to Japan and… Read More

Bio   I do not call my self a photographer.  I consider my self a traveler or a observer because that is what I am.  My pictures representing my life puzzle. Every picture is a little piece of my life story.  What I see in my life travel and during my life path.  If I would use for my self the word photographer, would not be in the way people use the word but in it’s true real meaning. The word is Greek and means drawing the light… So in me that… Read More

  Bio   As it counts for more photographers, my life can be separated in two: the analog and the current digital photography era. To this day I’m still approaching photography regarding the analog techniques. But let me start at the beginning. My first serious camera was the world famous Praktica, produced in communist Eastern Germany. At that time I thought it was a serious camera. It was a splendid camera to learn about photography. I used both color and black and white film alternately. After some years I started developing the… Read More
