I'm a Photographer
I am a Spanish-American photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona. I was raised in my Grandmother’s restaurant and also worked in Fortune 500 corporations. I understand the hard work and dedication needed to build and maintain a business. Therefore, my specialty is working with businesses to create images for their own marketing and promotional use.
Having raced bicycles for most of my life, my photography career started in sports photography, covering big races such as the Amgen Tour of California and the Tour of Utah. Since 2010, I have served as the Official Photographer for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Some of my notable clients include; ExxonMobil, Nike Golf, ForeSee, Infusionsoft, Air Products & Chemicals, Pebbletec, Grabba Greens.
How I Started
Having raced bicycles for most of my life, I started with sports photography and covering big races such as the Amgen Tour of California and the Tour of Utah.
Photography is a passion of mine. Whether I am photographing a bicycle race or a headshot, it’s all about capturing that one moment that happens in a split-second, from watching an athlete’s defeat/triumph or seeing a person’s true personality shine through.
