BE CURIOUS // ASK QUESTIONS //SHARE WHAT YOU LEARN

WE LOVE THAT YOU ARE HERE AND WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT US

It all started through our own experience and journey. All dreams can be achieved but sometimes our own dreams feel so immense that we have no idea where to begin. We look up at those who we admire, those who already created something amazing and it's impossible to see the small stepping blocks that hold up success. All journeys entail learning and study, apprenticeship and expertise, and success and failure. This is the story of our journey.

RISE is the story of the people who went out of their way to teach us something they already knew. RISE is the way we failed over and over again, and then got up to succeed. RISE is the joining of all the things that seem too little but are extremely important. RISE is the direction in which you can point your career into something bigger than yourself. RISE is the place for you!

Photography is that thing that drives me crazy, that moves me. It is my way of expression and my way of being. Through photography I found myself. I love getting inspired by editorial fashion, design, architecture and art (I believe museums are the most romantic places given the sense of belonging they offer). Through photography I found how much I adore teaching others what I have learned through my experience. I feel like when I share what I know I give a bigger meaning to what I am doing.I dropped out of college to follow a calling for photography. My growth has been about harnessing self-discipline and self-improvement. I arrived at the pinnacle of this when I began to teach others my own acquired knowledge. I remember when I first started I felt I couldn’t ask the best for help, I never want this to be the case for others. Teaching and showing others the skills, and even the habits, I have acquired throughout my growth is what has added most meaning to this whole path.

Marketing Specialist

Siempre me ha gustado contar historias, la mía, la de los demás. Me apasiona descubrir y conocer el mundo que cada quien vive y ha vivido. Desde pequeña me ha atrapado el universo de la creatividad y su cautividad nunca me ha soltado. He pasado por varios de sus planetas y en todos he encontrado enseñanzas increíbles, creo firmemente en que cada decisión que tomamos en la vida nos lleva exactamente al lugar en dónde debemos de estar. Estudié relaciones públicas y publicidad, trabajo en marketing, me apasiona el diseño, la fotografía, podría decir que soy una nerd en la creatividad. El estudiar y no dejar de aprender es algo que me emociona, el hambre de seguir creciendo y sobre todo de seguir esparciendo mis conocimientos en diferentes áreas es una decisión que nunca voy a dejar de tomar. Me encanta escribir, explorar nuevas culturas y descubrir lo que un nuevo lugar te puede traer de aprendizaje. Encontrar inspiración en lugares y personas nuevas son dos de mis cosas favoritas. Me apasiona saber que mi trabajo y el de mi comunidad pueda llegar a hacer un impacto positivamente creativo en alguien, en algo. Vivir rodeada de gente con un propósito, con ganas de trascender y llena de acciones con intenciones de lograr cosas grandes, es de los regalos más bonitos que la vida me da.

// TO BECOME YOUR //

GREATEST SELF

// A MESSAGE OF GROWTH //

A camera in my hands always gave me the feeling of liberty, of power, of being able to express myself as I wanted to be perceived. First taking photographs of my friends and family, I found delight in their gratitude towards me for capturing a moment. Then, two years ago I shot my first wedding. A hopeless lover and believer of love, I’ve always been obsessed with people falling in love, the idea of getting married, of forever, of a soul mate and so on. I felt so close to all I looked up to, to what I wanted, what I dreamed of, that innately I kept going. The thrill shook me to my core and pulled me in.

At the beginning I was hungry for the epic photo, doing the work but not thinking about the roots of my intentions. Booking job after job, it became clear to me that it was easy for my growth to become stagnant. Doing it for the wrong reasons, sooner or later would have repercussions on my newfound success. Pausing myself to reflect on why what I was portraying was remarkable, I understood I had to create a fundamental relationship with who I was photographing to comprehend the extraordinary. With introspection came what I always thought unimaginable; a way of telling touching stories, a way of leaving an appreciated legacy, and a form of transcending my work into a passion.
