Shooting Monterey, California

BIO

Thank you for visiting my site. I am a San Diego, CA based architecture, travel and landscape photographer. All the images on this site were taken only by me, including the one on this page.

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to nature. As a child growing up in Mexico, I was always the kid that wanted to play outdoors. My background and work in architecture and architectural photography, has given me a solid foundation in understanding light and space.

My love for landscape photography originated in 2012 while living in Monterey, California. It was there where the discovery of my creative process began. I have and continue to take photography workshops with some amazing and inspiring teachers, but I still consider myself to be self-taught.

My photography is landscapes, nature elements and abstracts that have an artistic quality. My goal is to capture the essence of the places that I explore, the details of nature and the beauty of light and form. 

I hope that you enjoy my work.
