Second generation Cuban American, and retired Navy Veteran after 20 years of military service.
I am now able to pursue my love and passion. (Given my previous career path, I never strayed away from the visual and creative field. Presently, I am the owner of Creative Photo Images, LLC, in Baltimore, MD, with a primary photography specialization in Events, Portraiture, and Nuptials, Image restoration and the sale of Prints. Displayed work with RAW- Natural Born Artist; published in Virginia Living and BuckOff magazine.
Photography is my calling, my passion, my profession, and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday.
My Experiences in life has allowed me to see both the darkness and the light in man-kind. However, I choose to enhance my surroundings by photographing the way I feel. My artwork is neither political nor socially divested, however with a primary focus and an objective-artistic view of Nature, I try to emulate its beauty by interpreting what I see through the lens of my camera - be it Nature, People, or Inanimate objects.
At times, I will engineer my image(s) to try and display a perception of surrealism that Nature so often will present to us in such a delightful and breath-taking way, thereby allowing us to formulate an interpretation of what we think it should be and marble in her magnificence.
While I employ a variety of software and processes to produce my images, my methods are consistent. Although they may not always be a similarity between my compositions, however, they are all bound together by a recurring similarity in style. The subject matter of each piece will sometimes determine the software-medium and technique I employ. As such, it’s a bit of a strange concept. But, it’s honest – and it’s the best way to describe my approach to the craft. I struggle with every image I shoot, and process to, achieve perfection, if it’s at all possible.
My satisfaction is that each person who views my work obtains something a little different – a means of self-identification and comfort from the same image!
If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me quite well.
Thank you for visiting and supporting me as an artist!!
