Meztli, you should look into publishing on a serious note. I know someone who published something w/ pictures from archives in like an arcadia series of ethnic communities in the US... i'm sure there are some sort of smaller publishing firms over there in Mexico or in the US that would love your work. I'm sure you could help someone to write for you and your pictures... or help you w/ writing for your work.... .

Shit, I'd be down to talk to you bout helping you w/ writing bout what some of these pictures can produce as far as a story... narrative or what have you....


great pics again!

Nothing special, a friend of mine and I arrange photo shoots with girls we know and shoot away in locations and try to come up with themes. This theme was supposed to be Nice and Naughty but i back fired because the nice photos were a mess. The girl has a very intense facial look and she looks mean and sexy instead of nice and innocent and the naughty ones she looks nice and innocent when she is supposed to be sexy lol. The other ones look pretty cool though.

Ill post more pictures later.

Wow! Maybe a different location/setting could have made a difference? Where is the location in this picture?

Look forward in seeing the other pictures you took.

God hopefully you don't get good at it. Baby/kid photos are the worst kind, lowest on the totem pole type of photos. It puts the viewer in a dick position because you pretty much have to say you like it solely because theres a baby involved. Of course you could always be "that guy" who says the picture sucks and then completely monopolize the conversation to explain why you're "that guy". Complete BS.

Meztli You are really very good, you capture not just the person, but the situation and it's surrounding details which tells the story!

Thats the difference between a good photographer and a GREAT one Keep up the good work lady!

Meztli I love your pictures! They are stunning. You make me miss Mexico so much. I was born in San Luis Potosi and never even been to the media Luna, nonetheless the waterfall, it is amazing. I am so glad you are capturing the beauty of Mexico. Keep up the good work
