About Photographer

I was born in 1977 in Mexico, Coatzacoalcos, in Veracruz, directly at the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. I am married and lucky father of two girls. After spending most of my young life in Mexico, I went to Germany when I was 22 to pursue my studies in mechanical engineering. Now I work as an engineer in the aerospace industry in Hamburg. I have always been curious about art. My interests in the concepts of the aesthetics of nature as well of urban landscapes, led me to start doing photography to capture its beauty not only for the sake of it, but to convey emotions. As I have grown older, I have found the need of expressing myself through photography, showing the things that I not only see but feel and share this with the world.
