BONEYARD, THE DOCUMENTARY

Soon! We will be able to watch Boneyard, a documentary on YouTube, which is about four boys that decided to make music, back in the day, we’re talking about late 80’s- early 90’s.

I joined them -camera in hand-, right before the official presentation, at this bar, we shared a couple of beers and good conversation while doing my shots.

These guys have been part of the rock scene for quite some years now, and it can be a struggle to develop any type of art in a country which can be culturally limited. What I do see, is that all these efforts to keep the music history coming forward to new generations, are going to pay off sometime ahead. And it’s a good thing for new generations to see.

SURF CITY EL SALVADOR PRO

The World Surfing Leage (WSL) made its very first stop in El Salvador this past week in Punta Roca, known for having the best righthand point break in Central America.

Too bad we got hit by storms these past few days which made the conditions a bit too difficult to start the tournament right on schedule. So the pressure was on to make the best out of it.

Maybe next time Punta Roca will show itself for what it really is.

I got the chance to go and take a few shots both times I went. Still I’m learning a lot about the sports I wish I could have learnt when younger.

EL ÚLTIMO Y NOS VAMOS (THE FAREWELL CONCERT)

This had me with mixed emotions… On one hand, just the thought of being their official photographer through the years, this time having the chance to document their last concert… The very last one.

On the other hand, having the honor of covering their most important venues, being a part of it all through my lens… I feel grateful, and will always be.

The farewell venue happened at the Black Coyote Theater, it felt most like an MTV Unplugged (sort of), but absolutely electrifying! The crowd’s reactions and interactions were just there, it all had me jumping around with my camera while capturing those moments.

Unforgettable.

I specially like to thank my dear friend Aaron Sztarkmann (the greatest bass player there is) for putting such job on my hands and eyes.

And so it all began…

ARTISTIC PHOTOSHOOT

I had not published these portraits on my website, not that I had forgotten that I made these beautiful images of Ellen, she is part of the National Ballet Company here in El Salvador.

She revealed not just how natural she is in front of a lens, but the true artistry of her moves in front of it is so striking, that the resulting images turned out to be pure magic.

An ethereal beauty…

WEDDING IN APANECA

I have decided to review my not so old material, and I ran into this folder from 2015, I found these lovely photos I did while working with Pixelarte.

I think it was probably one of the first weddings I took pictures of (while that photography project lasted).

These are the pics of Rafael & Gaby’s wedding!

MEXICAN TOUCH

After all these months of slow -or maybe none- photographic work, JCP Arquitectos rang me to do an interiors photoshoot.

This restaurant is located in downtown San Salvador, where the Centro Histórico is located.

The restaurant’s specialty is mexican food, their owners wanted a place where you could feel the touch of color as well as many details that belong to salvadoran culture, I love the mixture of both, I thought it was pretty original and creative.

JOHN & DANA

It was on a saturday afternoon, our location this time was Cardedeu, a beautiful spot by the Coatepeque Lake -which by the way is one of the beauties of this country-, its well known for its price winning architecture.

That’s the place where John and Dana chose to exchange their vows in this very intimate ceremony organized with their close friends Roberto and Camila.

It was really a touching experience of love, and I thank them for making me part of it.

ARLINE & RONALD

It has been kind of a slow year when it comes to weddings, my friend Karen asked me to help her with another one, and somehow, these events are so unique.

We first met with Arline and Ronald a few days before their big day, and you could see such chemistry between them that we knew that our images would turn out wonderfully!
