Pablo Reyes, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Pablo has had great success with his photographs. He photographs major fashion events for Television & Celebrities Magazine and has even had a photo published on the cover. Recent work includes images of Dominican rock star Janio Lora's newest CD. Pablo says that when he "took classes at NYIP, where I learned many other tips that made my images pop up, and my pictures started to be published in some national newspapers too. I started my studio CleverXposure Photography after the recommendations of NYIP." He considers himself a fashion photojournalist and says he's applied those styles to his portait and wedding images. Pablo has also become a photography teacher and is giving courses and tips to the new passionate young photographers in Dominican Republic. Congratulations!
