What made you get into photography?
To be honest, I didn’t know I wanted to be a photographer. It was something that happened organically, and I am grateful every day that I found such an amazing career.
You took your first photos in the kitchen. How did you get started as a photographer?
Yes, since I was little, I have been in contact with my creative side. Once I became an adult, I decided to be a chef and explore my creativity in the world of kitchens. Reading through cookbooks and exploring the photography inspired me to get into the kitchen to capture the magic through a camera lens, and thus I began to take photos documenting what happened behind the scenes of my favorite kitchens and restaurants. It was there that I discovered my passion for photography.
How would you characterize your style? Your Instagram page is splashed with elegant shots of beautiful plates of food, strong architecture, and very poetic moments captured in a still life painting style.
I think my style is timeless, elegant, and clean. I like to capture real moments and take care of the fine details of every shot so that it comes out perfect. The reality is that all the moments of life and places that we see and live are beautiful. I like to expose that.
What is the most inspiring thing about being a photographer in Mexico City?
Without a doubt, how dynamic and ever-changing it is. We live in an extremely surreal city, everything happens at the same time, and I like to be part of that.
