Specialist Wedding Photographer since 1969
More than 2,000 assignments
and over 100,000 pictures of experience
At the age of 9, my father allowed me to take my first pictures using his camera, a Zeiss-Ikon that used 120 mm b&w film. When I was 14 years old I began to be more interested in photography (mostly landscape) and through a friend's father I learned to process b&w film and print my own pictures at his professional lab. At 15, a friend's brother got married and asked me to take his wedding pictures, which he paid me for; I consider this to be my first professional assignment.
After this, I began to shoot weddings and several other social events with borrowed equipment. I also began to work as an assistant for the photographer of the mayor of the city of Buenos Aires (Argentina), who taught me all the necessary skills to be a professional photographer. This allowed me to save money and purchase my b&w processing equipment which was installed in my parent's house in their old laundry room. I also purchased my first professional 35mm film camera (Exacta-Varex IIa) and my first professional flash (Multiblitz). After several assignments in advertising photography, I became a "table top" photographer for a renowned cosmetics company. On October 9, 1971 the most important assignment of my life arrived. It was for a wedding, where I met a guest, the best friend of the bride who went on to become my wife, Grace (we now work together shooting photography).
After my arrival to the United States in 1985, I continued with my passion for photography, shooting weddings, portraits, international conventions (for a direct sales company), prototype cars (for an American car designer) and landscapes. The last phase of my career was the creation of my website to provide an online portfolio of my work, where we will continue to offer you professional, high quality service.
