PHOTOGRAPHY ADVENTURE VACATIONS

Photographer Guide

The World’s Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Adventure Vacations

EDGAR MONZON

People, Street, Travel and Landscape Photographer

GUATEMALA

Born in Guatemala, Edgar began his professional photography career more than 15 years ago when he became fascinated with digital photography after being certified as a master in photoshop and digital postproduction.

His passion for photography led him to the creation of an online academy and a desire to travel the world. Along with his camera he has visited more than 40 countries in all 7 continents. He considers photographing people his true love, especially capturing environmental portraits. He enjoys listening and talking with the people he photographs.

Edgar has published two photography books, titled 7 Guatemala’s, and Nosotros los Guatemaltecos. He is currently working on what he considers his most intimate publication to date, Rostros y Almas (Faces and Souls), a book about people and the stories that have formed their lives. His work has been featured in several exhibits, his last one being, Los límites de la belleza (Boundaries of Beauty).

Even though some of his work is in color, his real passion is with black and white photography.
