Once an islander, always an islander
3,943 miles from my birthplace of Tenerife, Spain, my island roots are a big part of who I am today. These roots eventually re-established themselves in the soil of the mid-west in the United States where my undergraduate work at WMU was the pivotal moment of my life; it was here that my life would turn a page and become a new chapter.
I began my next chapter married to my beautiful wife of 22 years, where we have raised two beautiful children here in Michigan. Life in Michigan surely has been challenging with a climate unlike that of my native island, but I can always resort to my island roots when I look back at my portraits in the hopes of escaping the sub-zero wind chills if need be!
Be the best that you can be
My experience as a photographer is seasoned with world travels to places such as Maui, Hawaii; my native land of Tenerife, Spain; Paris France; Brussels, Belgium; and London, England. These travels have helped nurture my passion for capturing what only an eye and a lens together can see!
I’m always looking for the perfect time to create dreamy backlight portraits with light.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to talk with you about your session, so leave me a note here and I will be in touch with you soon.”
As an artist, I never want it to be just a moment in time. I want it to be a legacy, a portrait of a memory that touches people forever.Juan Pérez
