Hi there. I’m Alberto. I’m a Graphic Designer by day, proud husband 24/7, and a Photographer in my spare time.
I was born in Monterrey, Mexico, but I’ve lived in La Porte, TX all my life. I typically focus on Macro Photography for my personal work, but I’ll gladly take on Portraits, Architecture, Landscapes, and anything else for my family, friends and career.
—-Why do I love Macro Photography?—-
The reason I love Macro Photography the most is because I love finding amazing new creatures and life right where I live. In the past, before I discovered Macro Photography, National Geographic taught me that all the amazing creatures are in another country and in exotic locations. But then one day, I saw a Spiny Orb-Weaver and everything changed. This creature was more amazing than any animal I’ve ever seen so far, and get this, I found it in my backyard! It was at that moment that I fell in love with Macro Photography. I quickly bought a DSLR and a macro lens so I could find more of these amazing creatures, photograph them beautifully, and keep being amazed at the amount of wildlife I’ve been overlooking.
For as long as I can remember, I had been aiming to travel thousands of miles and spending thousands of dollars at the opportunity to capture beautiful pictures. I’m here to tell you that Macro Photography unlocks another world in the location you’re already at. My goal with my photography is to help open your eyes to what I was once blind to. There’s an incredible world of Insects, bugs, and other wildlife right beneath the very grass you step on. Get out there and take a look, and you’ll never see the world the same way again.
Thank you for stopping by! I’ll be more than happy to answer any question you have about my work!
