ABOUT MICHELLE DE LA VARA
OMG. WOW. UNBELIEVABLE. LOVE THEM!!
These are comments received by my clients.
You will hear most photographers say “photography is my passion”. (I have to admit… it is cliché.)
HOWEVER, I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH THAT STATEMENT.
It’s cool. It’s fun. Every project is unique. Never a dull moment.
For you, it will definitely be a fun experience. I always educate my clients ahead of time to make sure they understand that I what I do is a PRODUCTION. I am equipped with assistants and a lot of equipment because what I do is not just ordinary. I strive for EXTRAORDINARY.
Most photographers usually specialize in one or two areas of photography. I can’t seem to commit to just one or two. I love shooting sports, kids, families, models, weddings, quinceaneras, events, and more. I love shooting everywhere. Why? Because it is challenging to create amazing artistry and I love a challenge.
And, in case you are wondering, I have won several awards for my work.
I graduated from California Polytechnic University, Pomona with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. Unlike most photographers, I have over 20 years in marketing/advertising/design/layout experience that really does make a difference in my photography business. My vision is not limited to just taking a great photo. It extends beyond the photography process and the possibilities are endless.
