How can you do a big personal project with only one light | Como crear un gran proyecto personal con una luz

A lot of people have asked and others have tried to guess how have I done my two latest personal projects “Town of Clouds” and “The day that color didn’t exist”. Some say that I used HDR technique and others that my work is all in post-production. The truth is that I do not like to use HDR and my work in post-production is minimal.

Behind the Gooool | Detrás del Gooool

After a few weeks of much sobriety in my projects, an opportunity presented which I could not resist. I was going to the first soccer game in the new Chivas stadium in Guadalajara, Jalisco. I must confess that I am not passionate about soccer, I do not wear soccer jerseys and my humos does not depend if a team wins or not. But being a witness of what soccer means to thousands of people is a unique experience.

Nunca he utilizado la fotografía en blanco y negro como un medio para expresarme, soy amante del color y los contrastes, pero en esta ocasión el blanco y negro no es un medio, es un estado anímico el cuál me representa en estos momentos. Respeto la fotografía B/N, y más si desde su concepción es B/N, así es como vi mi día.

The roof is on fire

I had a lot of satisfaction in my professional life, moments that I remember gladly and lots of stories to tell. This project is one of my top 5.

En mi vida profesional he tenido muchas satisfacciones, muchos momentos memorables, muchas anégdotas, y este proyecto se coloca inmediatamente dentro de mi top 5.

It all started with a call while I was traveling from Houston to Austin. I was done with a photo shoot and was being contacted from Monterrey, Mexico (my hometown). They were asking me to create a story in photographs of what the opening of the new Chivas stadium in Guadalajara will be. To be honest, I did not understand the magnitude of the event until I stepped into the stadium. The facilities are top-of-the-world, which makes it (without any doubt) one of the most incredible stadiums in America.

Texas CEO Magazine

Last month I had the pleasure to work for the very first time with Texas CEO Magazine. I had to travel to Houston to take a photograph of the CEO of one of the most importante medical center in US, Dr. Bertwelsen.

El mes pasado tuve el gusto de poder trabajar por primera vez con la revista Texas CEO. La encomienda era trasladarme a la ciudad de Houston, TX, para fotografiar al Director de uno de los centros médicos mas importantes de Estados Unidos, el Dr. Bertwelsen.

In occassions like this one, working with people who are extremely busy time is an important factor. Six hours driving Austin-Houston-Austin, 10 minutes for breakfast, 15 minutes for lunch and 15 minutes for the photo shoot in 4 different locations is all the time you need to do in special occasions. I love road trips!

En algunas ocasiones como esta, trabajar con personas que tienen una agenda sumamente ocupada el factor tiempo es sumamente importante. Seis horas manejando Austin-Houston-Austin, 10 minutos para desayunar en Starbucks + 15 para comer en McDonalds y 15 minutos de sesión para cuatro diferentes locaciones es lo que uno tiene que lograr en ocasiones especiales. Amo viajar por carretera!
