Chalo Garcia is a passionate Artistic Fashion & Glamour Photographer who is Internationally Published. He currently resides in Tampa Bay, Florida. Hailing from the beautiful San Jose, Costa Rica, Chalo’s love for travel and technology took him to various art-infused areas. In Texas, he rigorously studied Multimedia at The Art Institute of Houston, and decided to expand his knowledgebase by entering the realm of Multimedia, Graphic Design & Web Development. Being constantly immersed in Digital Media, Videos, Audio, and Images, Chalo felt like he was beginning to live one of his childhood dreams: to become a capturer of life’s beautifully precious moments; a Photographer.
As a child, Chalo’s flair for picture-taking was evident and he has his inspirational father to thank for that, for he was the kind of photographer who never left the house without his camera. Chalo, becoming extremely inspired, decided to walk in his footsteps. From that point forward, he has snapped beautiful shots of Portrait Natural Beauty, Fashion Models, Artistic Glamour, Nature, Landscapes, Pets, Wild Life, Architecture, and the list goes on.
Knowing no limitations, in 2007, Chalo began to work on a new project that focused primarily on Beauty and Fashion. He ended up Developing an International Model and Photographer Magazine and social media website called Intermodelo.com. Within that time, Chalo also met numerous talented individuals in the modeling industry, such as Models, Photographers, Agents, Fashion Designers, Makeup Artists, Hairstylists, and more. Intermodelo was expanding rapidly and was gaining more and more popularity by the day on global scale. He then started to dabble in Fashion Photography, which eventually became his area of current concentration.
Chalo’s fashion photographer muses, include Mario Testino, Helmut Newton, Steven Klein, and countless more. In his own work, he likes to utilize natural light to grant an undeniably raw look, while at the same time, also really enjoys the use of strobes and studio work. Additionally, Chalo puts a lot of time into retouching and adding his own unique style to photos. His aim isn’t to merely create beauty in a portrait photo, it’s to discover that innate beauty and capture it within one distinctive moment.
Furthermore, Chalo has been involved in Commercial Architecture and Food Photography for several Hotels, Restaurants, and Tour Operators. Nature Photography is something that happens during his time off and enjoys capturing moments during his travels and peaceful walks. Chalo has even done some Pet Photography here and there. You can find some samples directly on this Website, although this space is more Portrait, Fashion, and Glamour Photography focused
