Maria Alzate graduated with a Bachelor of Communications (Majoring in Advertising) and International Studies. Furthered her studies in photography at the Australian Centre of Photography in Sydney completing Camera Craft 1 & 2, Photoshop and Advanced Lighting. From there I extended my training in the field interning at BAUER MEDIA GROUP assisting some amazing photographers both in studio and on location across different photographic genres; food, fashion, product, people and lifestyle. She has great attention to detail and can be a perfectionist at times.
It never gets boring and there is always room to be creative, the sky is the limit.
I enjoy doing commercial photography the most. In particular fashion, e-commerce, lifestyle, product and editorial. In fashion you need to think how to creatively bring a story to life through the right use of light, garments/products, location, and model. When doing lifestyle shoots its about making the audience feel something to entice them to want the same things. Commercial allows me to combine my advertising background and photography to meet the brief and deliver a final image the client is happy with.
I participated in the ACP student exhibitions
I danced professionally for 10 years and love to travel
