I'm a career long Freelance Commercial Photographer since the mid 1980's whose creative work has been commissioned by advertising agencies, design firms, corporations, magazines, book publishers; the list goes on.
I started out specializing in location work, primarily creating black and white environmental portraits for corporate clients. I shifted to color in the 90's and never looked back.
In the work that I create, it is very important for me to be unique in my vision. I strive to produce my own style of artwork, and to never follow what is the new "in-style".
I do my best to avoid the trends, and I never chase the market. At every step of my career, I have always been myself. It's not always popular, but I do my best.
What I present here on PIXELS is my creative vision, doing my utmost to be unique. To never be like anyone else.
Being unique has put me in good company, like so many other artists who strive to be themselves, or are working to find their own unique vision.
Never give up, and cheers to those who have found their artistic way. -YoPedro
I make a living with my camera, and I like what I do a lot, so that makes me one of those people who found what they love, and get paid for it. I'm not unique, in fact I know a lot of artist that do this, especially here on Fine Art America. While the bulk of what I do is for commercial clients, much of what I produce are personal projects, work just for myself. Photography is something that I've done for quite some time now, and something that I hope to keep doing for some time longer.
I have a penchant for all things mechanical. I like hot rods, and machinery, manufacturing, I especially like real big stuff like earth movers and factories. I tend to like stuff with wheels, but not too much of the new stuff. I certainly appreciate it, but I like how the old stuff looks, and the idea that someone built it with their hands. I suppose because I tend to turn a wrench now and then too. Old equipment is fascinating to me because I can appreciate what it took to build it. I am often amazed at what was produced during the industrial age, when manufacturing was in it's infancy. I look at a piece of machinery that is over a hundred years old, and I wonder just how must genius it took to imagine it, and then build it. For me, it's a fascinating journey. -YoPedro
