I currently live and work in Puebla. I specialize in taking pictures of people, portraits, and advertising pictures that highlight the presence of human beings, ranging from catalogs to campaigns for the defense of the jaguar in Northern Mexico.
Taking pictures of any kind of person is part of the contemporary portrait experience as an artistic proposal, but above all, as an exercise of our reflection on changing nature.
I graduated from Universidad de las Américas, Puebla, in 1992. While at school, I obtained first place in the National Graphic Design contest for editorial design and photography.
In 1992, eager to learn more about photography, I traveled abroad and studied in the Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Bárbara, California. Over this period, I obtained second place in the Brooks Institute’s annual photographic contest.
I graduated from Brooks in 1996 specializing in commercial photography.
In 1997 I came back to Mexico where I successfully established my photographic study called “FOTOMONTOTO”. In the same year I participated in several group and individual exhibitions in Mexico and abroad.
In 2004 I went to New York to increase my knowledge on digital photography and entered the International Center of Photography (ICP), doing courses in commercial, artistic and fashion photography.
In 2005 I moved to Bolzano, Italy, where mainly I worked on artistic and personal documentary photography. Inspired in how Italians adore beauty and aesthetics day by day I developed a more artistic eye.
In 2007 I came back to Puebla and continued with my photographic studio where I constantly create new ways of taking pictures and perceiving people.
