"I had a boudoir maternity shoot and I felt so comfortable the entire time. They were so professional and caring. They were very detailed with every photo. Had a wonderful experience."
"Those who know me are likely aware of my struggle with self confidence...." "... I realize that I'm proud of these photos, and that I'm proud of myself for having the guts to even attend the shoot."
"Wow!Thank-you. They -the portraits- are amazing! Thanks again for your care."
Carlos’ love for photography started at a very early age. He was so passionate that at 11 he studied all 150 issues of a Photography Encyclopedia. At 12 he owned his first SLR camera and he hasn’t stopped studying and shooting since. Photography was not a profitable profession in Colombia; hence he turned into his second passion: computers. Carlos graduated as a Computer Engineer from a Colombian University. He worked most of his professional career in the US. There he created Nextminds, a company dedicated to Graphic design, web design and advertising. In that way he kept photography close to him. When Carlos arrived to Canada in 2009, he decided that it was time to work in his dreamed field: Photography! In 2015 he decided to join the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC). After a rigorous process he got his accreditation in Portraiture.
