Photojournalism

My first job as a photographer was in 2004 at La Republica daily newspaper in Costa Rica. I had a part time job in the commercial department. I was still in school, I had done 4 out of 6 terms of my photography degree, and I did not know exactly what I was going to do once I was finished.

But it was at La República, by watching and talking to Marco Monge, the editorial photographer and editor, that I finally decided I wanted to be a photojournalist. I had other very influential people around me before who also encouraged me and helped me discover photojournalism, but it wasn’t until Marco started giving me editorial assignments that I realized how much I liked it.

I look back at the past 8 years of my photography life and I feel really happy with my accomplishments, but I can not wait for the future to bring me more challenges and discoveries.

In this section I want to share examples of my work, both editorial and commercial, that have been published or are still being used on the web.

In the Assignment section you will find work that I have done as a freelance photojournalist – both editorial and commercial. This is a small sample of work that I like, I had access to and is still out there being used!

In the Photojournalism Work section you will see the work that I have done as Staff or regular freelancer for publications and newswire agencies.

In the Documentary Section I have a few photos from essays that I have done in the past and also I have a list of my current documentary projects.
