Fatefully at the age of 21 on my first solo overseas journey I connected with a camera I found at an Airport I found in London. It reminded me of my childhood, how my Dad always had a camera in hand at the ready, also memories of studying media at school & the feeling of anticipation whilst waiting for film to develop......This began my love of photography......When my father passed years after it triggered life events that helped drive me to realise this medium was my love & therefore the passion to make it my career.
I enjoy events of all kinds as they are different on so many levels, from the people, to styling, food & venues. I love that I am able to capture so many aspects of the occasion, it's like documenting a story. The icing on the cake for me is when I see or hear the elation from my clients after they have viewed the images which often takes them back in time reliving that special event or seeing a moment they may have missed.
I don't generally have a favourite of anything as for me things change all the time, depending on my mood, feeling or what time of day it is. That is also what is great about what I do.....being able to make the mundane & ordinary look great! Never judge a book by it's cover!See Portfolio & Book
I got started with photography during my last year at University. There it was compulsory to pick an emphasis to develop. At the beginning, I started with some basic photography subjects at the Uni wich lead me to get more interested in the area. As a result of that, I started to explore more in depth the visualization of products and thus got more involved in photography becoming what I am now.
Alvaro definitely considers food photography and events photography are the kind of shots he enjoys most. The first one, because food provides a lot of elements to play with. From the cutlery, passing trough the glass, dishes, textures and the same food, allows creating always a unique atmosphere and situation to photograph. In regards to events, Alvaro loves the big amount of emotions that this situation brings on, can be an engagement, a wedding or maybe a concert, he always loves freeze those moments in his pictures to preserve that energy for longer periods.
Alvaro considers avery place is a googd one, the city bring all the moood to create very stilysh pictures with a lot of elements that can add a very dinamic mood. Hoever, other places such as beaches, bushes, deserts also come with their embed mood that creates certain atmospheres that add more 'drama' to the images. In regards to product and food photogrpahy, most of the time the place (restaurant - kitchen) allways provide thas absolutely escenario fulfield with the magic of the place. On the other hand events, venues, concerts are allways held in diferent areas wich result as a mixture of elemnts that makes the momen unique and spetial to photograph for.See Portfolio & Book
