Formula F at Utopia bachata

Photos and Performance Videos from La Fuerza & D’Cor’s Utopia Latin Dance Social (NYC)

After our last anniversary event, I quickly came to the realization that I had taken on about two jobs too many as I was running around like a headless chicken for most of the night (I had to perform in two numbers, and was in charge of all the media for the event). Live and learn, right? ...

5 Reasons Why Barrio Santo Domingo Savio is an Awesome Place to Take Photos in Medellin (Colombia)

Even though it’s been years since Medellin renounced its title as ‘Most Violent City in the World’,  my friends in the U.S. still seem surprised to hear that I would want to go there again for a vacation. What I love about photography is that photos allow me to relay the beauty of a place in a ...

My Experience Performing with Luis Vargas at Madison Square Garden

It’s been a few months now since the event, and just the memory of it still feels unreal…good thing I like to take pics.  🙂 Given the historic relevance of the Garden, I’m sure you can understand, why this Korean-Canadian-Californian living as a New York transplant was having a hard time registering the fact that he’d be performing ...

Finding Hidden Gems While Culling Through Old Photos

If you’re anything like me, after returning home from a trip, you are immediately faced with the unenviable task of sifting through hundred of photos that you’ll be editing in prep for distribution on various social media oulets.  You think you have chosen the best photos to relay the high points of your trip, you edit, post, and ...
