When you photograph a multi photographed place like Big Ben, you have to be able to look at it at a different angle, or in a different way, in order to make it stand out. This was my attempt of doing so. A long exposure, from a low angle, and a long wait, trying, until getting the light trails in a way that looked nice and well balanced.

Falafel is known to the be the ultimate in Middle-Eastern food. This was a personal project to showcase how the texture feels up close and where all the crunchy noises come from when eaten. I personally enjoyed this photo-shoot as I got to eat everything. One of my habits as a food photographer is to do my utmost best to photograph the dish as is, as it comes out of the kitchen with no fake tools or items. What you see is how you will get it originally in the restaurant. It's harder and more difficult but that's where the challenge comes in. To photograph something the way you or your client wants it in a quick and efficient manner before the dish gets greasy or dry.

This photo was made on September 7th, 2015, in Bahía de Kino, Sonora, México. During a photo session with a quinceañera, it was very noticeable that pelicans were everywhere, lost more than what we usually see. I did not want to miss the opportunity to photograph them, since they were so beautiful and close to us. Pelicans at the Cortes Sea.

This is a photo of a chandelier. The ceiling was a very high one, and the chandelier quite wide. In Las Vegas you can find this kind of decoration in many places. I looked at it, it really seemed to be coming at me, and then in there, I saw the photo. I like the color very much, it is so attractive to the eye, I don´t usually do abstract photography, but this one really catch my eye.

Brown-winged Kingfisher is one of the biggest and the most elusive kingfisher among all others. It was taken in Sundarbans, one of the largest mangrove forests in the world (140,000 ha).

We made this photo at a wedding reception in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. It was a beautiful wedding, full of love and joy, and this was a way of celebrating. Maybe a hundred cantoya balloons were released that night, dressing the night sky and the town of San Carlos, in the Sea of Cortés, with yellowish happiness. Congratulations to the couple!!

Guanajuato, in central Mexico, is a very beautiful colonial city, which has been honored with UNESCO´s mention of World´s Heritage Site. The city is the capital of the state of Guanajuato, and has many traditions, such as the ¨callejoneadas¨, which is music and singing in the many alleys, at night, a very romantic experience for tourists. This photo was made from the Pípila´s Status site, on a mountain.

Nightjars are mostly active in the late evening and at night or the early morning, and feed predominantly on moths and other large flying insects. During the day you can find them inside the forest of bamboo. I took this photograph from Jahangirnagar University Campus, a famous place for bird watching.
