Puerto Rican Parade ’15

This year the Puerto Rican Parade in NYC falls on the best day in the world to me, my birthday. After a long night of celebrating I contemplated for a long long time getting out my bed to walk down 5th Ave in the heat. But it was so worth it, I had a blast interacting with the parade-goers.

Having no press pass did not stop me from getting on the right side of the barriers. Using a little finesse, next thing I knew, I was walking down 47th St towards 5th ave. The streets, as you can imagine, were full of life and high energy. Everyone reppin’ and shouting Spanish words i could barely translate, if any (I’m one of those Puerto Ricans lol).

I decided to go to the parade for the whole experience and to also get some shots of people rocking Sol Republic Headphones, who commissioned me for some photos. What can I say, I have the best job in the world.

Check out some of my favorite photos from the day.

Beautiful moments in life inspire me. That surreal moment taking place within my reality. Reading about other photographers, i came across a very similar thought from Mario Moreno.

“Inspiration is everywhere around us and wherever you look you will see an image worth capturing. Photography is a wonderful way of sharing your feelings and experiences with people and this is what I like about photography. I pursue the ‘Perfect Moment’, capture it and share it. This is my goal.”

I feel a certain emotion with every photograph I capture. A sense of WOW, “this is really amazing and I am glad to be apart of this.” From music concerts, events, to some of fashion’s biggest shows. I am happy to share my point of view with the world.

Starting out carrying a camera just to capture day to day moments in my life. My photography transpired by the more my life evolved. Photography is not a job for me but a pictorial of my life story.

As my career and life continue to grow, I hope you enjoy my adventure!
