Profile Information

About Me:
I was born in South America, where my family is originally from. We moved to the United States (Miami, FL) when I was 10 years old and spoke only Spanish at the time. I ended up going to St. John’s Prep school in the Boston area where I really got involved in photography as the Year Book photographer. It was all film, so I was in the darkroom developing and printing the black & white photos. Then I went to college in upstate New York and continued with my photography and darkroom work with color and black & white.
I graduated with a degree in engineering and moved to Denver, Colorado, with one of my fraternity brothers and went to work for a small local engineering firm. I purchased my Nikormat SLR and telephoto lens. A few years later I bought my first house and set up a darkroom in the basement. Then I bought a 2 ¼ Rollei twin-lens camera, which was great to use in the field and for the darkroom. The Rollei, some antique cameras I had purchased and most of my negatives were stolen from my house… I finally started my own engineering company, which I had for about 7 years, and started to do graphics design as well as the photography work.
When things slowed down in the Denver area, I ended up getting a job in California and moved there - the Palm Springs vicinity, which is a desert area, and went to work for an engineering firm there. I continued to do graphics design and photography work. After several years working for a few other companies and working in San Diego for a few years, ended up setting up another sol-proprietorship - an engineering/consulting company. As computers were developed, I started doing work with graphics and photo software. As the economy started to slow down, I took classes in computer graphics and photography. Then I became more focused on doing freelance photography work and graphics design.
Then I decided to move back to the east coast to be closer to my family – three sisters and a brother and their families. So, I’ve been here in Maryland for a few weeks, just outside of Washington DC, to see what I can make happen.
My Equipment
Nikon D300, Nikor 18-200mm f3.5-5.6
