Hey! Lets sign it!!!!
When you kill journalists, you kill more than the information they fought to report. You kill the power of the people to know the truth, to speak up, to fight for a better world.

Hay que firmar...cada una cuenta.
Cuando se mata a un periodistas, usted mata más que la información que luchan por reportar. Matas al poder de la gente para conocer la verdad, para hablar, para luchar por un mundo mejor.

IMPORTANT for those freelancers covering the ‪#‎RNC2106‬

The NPPA will also be working with the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press in staffing a 24-hour a day hotline providing free legal aid to journalists facing arrest, detention or other such problems while covering the political conventions, or any protests or other events affiliated with the conventions. The hotline attorneys will also work with attorneys from who will be present in the convention cities, and will attempt to coordinate activities with other legal assistance organizations in both cities. That toll-free number is 800-336-4243. Lawyers can also be reached via email at hotline@rcfp.org and via Twitter @rcfp and @nppalawyer.

Story
Tagline
Photographer-Fotógrafo
Introduction

I am photographer specializing in documentary, editorial and reportage, covering current national and international events while also pursuing personal documentary projects. Born (1974) in El Salvador, Central America and then immigrated to the United States during the mid-1980’s settling in Los Angeles, California where I attended California State University, Northridge, obtaining a B.A. in Arts with an emphasis in Interior Design. Upon graduation, I applied my skills to photography and have since developed a vocation as a photojournalist, 

Over the course of my career I photographed many recent political, social, environmental,  health, human rights and conflict  issues  in Latin America, Middle East and Europe, focusing on under-reported issues and long-term projects, including the ongoing post-conflict situation in my native country of El Salvador.

As a freelancer I have carry out assignments, reportage and stories for many of the leading publications. Nowadays, I am based between San Francisco, California and San Salvador, El Salvador, but always moving.


                                                      

fotógrafo documentalista, editorial y reportages así como proyectos de largo plazo, dando cobertura a noticias y temas actuales a nivel nacional e internacional, mientras que también llevo acabo proyectos personales. Nací en El Salvador (1974)  y emigre a los Estados Unidos durante la década de los ochenta, estableciéndome en Los Ángeles, California. Asistí a la Universidad Estatal de California, Northridge obteniendo una licenciatura en artes con énfasis en diseño de interiores. Después de mi graduación, apliqué mis conocimientos a la fotografía y desde entonces he desarrollado una vocación como fotoperiodista .

A lo largo de mi carrera he fotografiado temas  de  política, medioambiente , salud , derechos humanos, sociales  y conflictos en América Latina , Oriente Medio y Europa , centrándome en temas de bajo perfil y proyectos a largo plazo, incluyendo la situación de la posguerra en mi país natal de El Salvador.

Como un profesional independiente he hecho asignaciones , reportajes e historias para muchas de las principales publicaciones.  Actualmente, divido mi tiempo, entre San Francisco,California y San Salvador, El Salvador, pero siempre en movimiento, trabajando como fotoperiodista freelance.
