Alberto is a photographer that has focused his creative vision towards celebrities and fashion, attracted to the opportunity to show ones external beauty through strokes of light and shadow. Born in Mexico City he developed a love for photography early upon seeing beauty in every day situations. This love was allowed to prosper when his grandfather gave him his first Canon 35mm camera.
His passion for photography as a hobby quickly transformed into something much larger. Deciding to take it to the next level he enrolled in Facultad de Artes y Diseño of UNAM where he graduated top of his class. But as the school year drew to a close he felt that his vision lacked direction and decided to hone it at International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City, with a artist residence under Alice O’Malley.
Never settling Alberto always strives to create the best images he can experimenting with both old and new techniques always arriving at a creative harmony. His work has been published in countries such as Chile, Argentina, Peru, Spain, France, The Netherlands, USA, and Mexico. He works in both the photographic and video mediums creating look books, editorials, celebrity portraits and music and fashion videos alike.
His recent work has been published in magazines such as Marie Claire, Harpers Bazar, Panico, Indierocks, Ocean Blue, Open, Quien, Chilango, Expansión, Hola, Forbes Mexico as well as many others.
