elejemplo Sergio Alvarez

Born in the U.S., Venezuelan by heart I am interested in telling stories about people´s struggle to gain rights, social justice, and equality in South America and Venezuela. I use Canon equipment for most of my stories. Sometimes I use a flash as fill in light but most of the time I use natural light.
