About Me

Del [email protected]
artist residing in New York City, known for
his warm, often humorous and always believable portrayals
of the human condition and for his ability to find or create meaningful
pictures in the man made and natural landscape. He possesses
a highly developed sense of craft and a hearty dose of perfectionism.

Living in New York City I was able to take advantage of the resources of
ICF, where I learned about the darkroom process, I was intrigued by the traditional process by which film and paper were
developed, that was when I chose film, as my main shooting medium. I
started photography with 35mm, then rapidly moved up to view cameras, which I enjoy the most. What draws me about view cameras is that they
require me to work slowly, one sheet of film at a time. I have to take the time to set up the camera, knowing that I have to compose with extremely care in order to get everything right. I have to choose the right lens for the effects that I want, then, check the light readings and think about how I want the tonal values to appear later in the print. This physical ritual frees up my mind to focus on what caught my attention in the first place, is almost a method of meditation and allows me to be in the moment like no other medium.

I don’t consider myself too much of a conceptional artist I am more of
a reactionary one that is, I react to what I see the light doing. Although,
some artist have an uniform recognizable style, to me it seems
limiting to only capture the world one way.

My photography I possess a blend of traditional posed photographs,
photojournalism landscapes and fine arts photography. I offer my clients
a great amount of variety within in their photo shoot, ultimatelly making
the collection of their memories they take home, very personal and unique.
