My Multimedia Video

This is a video of me about the last three months in college. Here you will see some of my assignments for photojournalism and advance portrait class. Also the video is speaking in spanish. The reason is because I been doing every assignment for multimedia II in english, but I think that time will be nice to do it in my own language because no matter if I'm taking in english or spanish. Photography is an universal language and all I do. I do it with my heart!

Gregory Heisler

I'm making this post from the auditorium at Gwinnett Technical College waiting for to meet Mr. Heisler.

Commander Station 11

Commander Station 11

Thursday 4th I went to Station 11 to take more shots for my photojournalism assignment. I spent 6 hrs with the firefighters. I went to 4 emergency calls. Two accidents, one fire alarm and one medical problem. It was very exciting. Also I'm thinking of going back to the station in a few more months, maybe summer, so I can get some fire shots.

Erich Hartmann

"A large portion of my work is concerned with people because people are the most inventive and news-making part of our lives. Yet I am as much attracted to the evidence of their presence and efforts, whether good or evil, as I am to the people themselves." Erich Hartmann

Jeff Ascough Wedding Photographer.

The first photographer in the UK to shoot weddings with a photojournalist's style, Ascough garnered global attention when his wedding work was featured in a 2004 issue of the Washington Post. Given his style, it makes sense that Ascough cites Henri Cartier-Bresson as an influence. While many wedding photographers shoot nonstop, he often composes an image and waits for the "decisive moment."

This day I wanted to have some shoots, so I bring my camera and once I was there I speak with a security guy to check out if I was able to have photos at the front of the stage. He said: this is not possible. you suppose to pay to get a vip pass to be able to photograph them, but you are pretty so I let you take some shoots... hehehe be a woman has some advantages sometimes.

Oakland Cemetery

Oakland Cemetery

Less than a mile from the heart of downtown Atlanta, a hidden treasure, a secret sanctuary, welcomes you. This garden cemetery, founded in 1850, is the final resting place of many of Atlanta's settlers, builders, and most noted citizens like Bobby Jones, Margaret Mitchell, and Maynard Jackson. It is also a showplace of sculpture and architecture, and a botanical preserve with ancient oaks and magnolias. Here in this peaceful place the full scope of the city's rich and fascinating history unfolds before you. CLICK HERE for more information.

This is a portrait of Claudio Coassin singer of Raintime. The band played last year at ProgPower USA in ATL downtown. I meet Claudio at the concert. He is a good friend and he gave me a VIP pass, so I was able to bring my camera and have pictures in the stage, backstage and all around the place. It was so awesome.

Shooting with Large Format

This is a video of me at the Blue Ridge Parkway shooting a 4x5 large format camera with Ryan Tyrl. 

Eye-One Display 2

Colour management starts with your monitor, and if it isn't correctly calibrated there is little if any chance of colour being displayed accurately. Therefore, the key to obtaining colour accuracy and consistency across applications and systems is to use a good quality hardware device to measure the light emitted from the display. This review discusses the latest revision to Gretag Macbeth's Eye-One Display colorimeter along with the supporting Eye-One Match software. CLICK HERE.

Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed American photographer and long-time photojournalist. McNally is known worldwide for his ability to produce technically and logiscally complex assignments with expert use of color and light.

Violin Men @ the Mexico Streets

Environment Portrait Mexico

I went to Mexico City last March to visit my sister in law. She was very kind and showed me the beauty of the Capital. So many wonderful places around the city...the people...the food; everything was perfect and rich in culture. As you see in this picture this nice man looks so proud to be on the street playing for people to get some money to survive in this world. 

Black & White


This is one of the images from my BLACK AND WHITE Final Four in my second quarter as a photographry student at Gwinnett tech. I took all the shots in the same day. It was very cold and cloudy. I had to stay a long time in these places to wait for the perfect light. But when the light came it was too bright so I decided to take three different exposures for the normal, the highlights and the shadows, and then put them together  to make the perfect photograph. 


Ryan @ Blue Ridge Pkwy

Environmental Portrait of Ryan Tyrl @ BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY. This is a perfect place for photographers to go and have the opportunity to be connected with mother earth and photograph its beauty and harmony.
