Getting ready for my trip to Arequipa in Peru this coming week, I am joining forces with Photographers Without Borders  to help HOOP Peru raise awareness by documenting their activities in the region. So this is most likely the last post before I leave, but stay tuned as I’ll be sharing images and stories from […]

Highlights of New Orleans

Sharing some of the photos I like the most from my weekend in New Orleans. This was a short trip, unfortunately the second and last day rained really bad, so what I had planned for that day couldn’t happen, or let’s say it ended up in a different way. Despite the weather conditions I was […]

Jackson Square | New Orleans

My last day in New Orleans was kinda crappy, the weather was really awful and it was raining badly almost all day long. Fortunately that’s not necessarily bad for photography, in fact it helps to produce distinctive photos with great reflections and a different feel. You just need to be on the look and try […]

Inle Lake | Myanmar

Still working on photos from the trip to Myanmar, this was an amazing trip with lots of photos and stories to share, so I’ll keep them coming. It’s way difficult to decided which place I prefer the best, all of Myanmar was certainly magical, needles to say the days in Inle Lake were beyond my […]

Calle 8 Festival | Carnaval Miami

What’s going on at the Calle 8 festival? I didn’t know…  and I needed to find out, many photography friends always mentioned it like a great place for some street photography. My Little Havana experience was only “Viernes Culturales”  an event that runs the last friday of every month. But the Calle 8 Carnival it’s a […]

An Afternoon in Algiers Point | New Orleans

It looks like a movie set, at times surreal.  The mix of houses in disrepair and the ones restored is like nothing I’ve seen before. I am in Algiers Point, just 10 minutes away from the French Quarter, crossing the Mississippi River to the west bank by taking The Algiers Ferry. Established in 1719, this […]

New Orleans Skyline

I am back from a weekend in New Orleans, just shooting around the city, it was the first Mardi Gras weekend of 2014 and it was packed. The idea was to capture as much as I could from the city and of course the street action and festivities, I wish I had more time, but […]

People around Mandalay | Myanmar

My time in Mandalay was about 3 days, during those days wandered around, within the city mainly the outskirt of the city where you can find more traditional Burmese lifestyle than in the city itself. There is so much diversity here, monasteries, art and crafts workshops, and of course rural areas. In this post I […]

The Nyaung U Market in Bagan | Myanmar

During the trip to Myanmar the Nyaung U market in the Mandalay Region in Bagan was truly the first contact I had with the local culture. Although I started the trip in Yangon I stayed there just one short day upon arrival, and the following morning a short flight took me to Bagan. En route […]

The Plains of Bagan | Myanmar (Burma)

One of the highlights from my trip to Myanmar, and one of the main attractions, drawing visitors to the country is the ancient city of Bagan. This is pretty much an archeological zone located in the Mandalay Region. There are several ways to get here from Yangon, but the most common for the tourist is the bus […]

The Street Market in Yangon | Myanmar

In Yangon there are no chain stores, so where do locals turn for they daily needs? The street market… Yes, locals go shopping everyday and they go to the street market where they can find everything you can imagine. Dead or alive, from fresh produce to, rice, meats, spices and beyond. The market stretches for […]

Wandering in Yangon | Myanmar

Yangon truly is a bustling city. Despite the fact that it’s the former capital of Myanmar ever since 2006 rolled around, and the government relocated to Naypidaw, it’s still the country’s largest city and commercial center. Over 5 million souls call it home. The city is also known as Rangoon, but the name was changed […]

Highlights of Myanmar (Burma)

I’ve just returned from a 12 day trip to Myanmar (Burma), it was truly a great experience and I came back with a lot to share. The trip was organized by Within the Frame, and I really want to thank our amazing guide, Nay Win Oo (Shine) for his dedication to the group and for […]

St. Petersburg by Night | Russia

While in St. Petersburg back in March had also the opportunity to do some night photography, because I was there just about 3 nights just tried to focus in the photos of the most iconic and traditional places, and by the way they are all spectacular. Like in a prior post about shooting at night […]

Coral Gables City Hall | HDR Photo

The Coral Gables City Hall is a historic site, it was built in the Mediterranean Revival style and it was added to the US National Register of Historic Places in 1974. This place is just a couple of blocks away from my office, in fact I have to drive by every day at night. I […]

Cold Nights in Moscow

Here are some more photos made in Moscow back in March, here is a link to the original post. March was colder than I thought in Moscow, I mean freaking cold, and specially when the sun was down…, a non-photographer friend traveling with me encouraged me to go out one night, he literally told me… […]

Moscow to St. Petersburg in the Sapsan

Still working on the photos from the trip to Russia, you can see the first photos from Moscow on my prior post here. Like mentioned before, I was 4 days in St. Petersburg as well, moved between cities using the first hight speed train within Russia, better known as Sapsan or the Peregrine Falcon. The service […]

Highlights of Moscow

Returned from a week in Russia about 4 weeks ago, already processed a bunch of photos but didn’t have time to post them until now. Russia was in my bucket list for a long time, so when Aeroflot started direct non-stop flights from Miami to Moscow last year I had the perfect excuse, they are now serving […]

Wandering in the Florida Keys for The Daily

I was sent on assignment for the now defunct online newspaper “The Daily” to the Keys last year, too bad they are not longer around, I really liked their articles and content… but seems that they didn’t have enough subscribers to keep on going. So they gave me a shot list and sent me 2 days to the Florida […]
