Frixoleros + Ampersan

Not even a month ago, I shot this short video of my friends, Camila and Daniel, performing at La Cuiza in Isla Río Cuale. I wasn’t crazy about the lighting, but was pleased to be able to capture at least one of their songs. No hace más de un mes, capturé este breve video de…

Día del Niño en Ciudad Guzmán

I was visiting my dear friend Roy Aguilar in his hometown, Ciudad Guzmán, where the famous Mexican composer, Consuelo Velázquez (Bésame Mucho) was born. One of my goals for the trip was to be creative (photo, audio and video-wise) with as little equipment as possible. So armed only with my Lumix LX5 pocket camera and…

Watch a Video and Discover San Pancho!

The latest edition of Vallarta Lifestyles magazine features a getaway article about this peaceful town, only less than an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. As usual, I’ve assembled photographes taken by myself along with other photographers, and produced a short video to complement the article. Taking advantage of the fact that the town is so…
