Hi! I'm María, photographer, digital 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, then went on to work with Revista Ladosis and Guataca Producciones until I moved to Boston in 2012 to go to New England School of Photography. 

I am now a staff photographer at Vanyaland and Quinta 14, and have been a collaborator with publications such as Live For Live Music, Consequence of Sound, Allston Pudding and Viceversa Magazine.

I almost exclusively wear black, blast Wild Side by Mötley Crüe every morning, and love John Taylor from Duran Duran. 

Can't wait to work with you!
