I'm María, photographer, retoucher and self portraiture artist.
I was born in 1987 in Caracas, Venezuela. The first song I loved was Bohemian Rhapsody at age 5, and my fascination with music would only expand over time. I started liking cameras when I was in college, and soon was photographing my friend's shows after graduating. I then went on to work with Revista Ladosis and Guataca Producciones until I moved to Boston in 2012 to both further my education and quench my thirst for rock and roll.
I am now a staff photographer and writer at The Entertainment Outlet and FRAMECODE Mag, and have been a collaborator for publications such as Vanyaland, Melodic Magazine, Live For Live Music, Consequence of Sound, Allston Pudding, Following Boston and Do617.
Along the way, I've photographed some of my all time favorite artists: Queen, Kiss, Nine Inch Nails, Rival Sons, Dorothy, Sebastian Bach, Jerry Cantrell, The Who, and many more. You would think this quenched that thirst: absolutely not, it only made it stronger.
My general approach can be summed up in the words of Paul Stanley in the Rise To It video: There's nothing we can't do.
