Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Axel now resides in Sanford, Florida. With a keen eye for detail, color, and natural light, he creates original imagery for editorial and commercial clients across the genres of travel & lifestyle, architecture, and still life. The need to travel was instilled in him at a young age. Growing up in a family of artists and travelers, he is grateful to have been immersed in an environment of creativity and curiosity from the start. Before he learned how to take a photograph, he learned how to be a traveler. Travel is when he is most engaged, most inspired and most challenged. Learning bits of a new language and culture, getting lost in winding cobblestone streets or narrow dirt paths, meeting local people, and taking in every element of a moment - sights, scents, sounds and feelings. This is when he is most alive. The camera allows him to capture and share these moments. Want to work together? Email me or look me up on Social Media. I'd love to hear from you!
