About the Artists


 
Abel Lares

Abel Lares

Since 2010 Abel has been cultivating a style of portraiture to call his own. While ultimately using natural light to capture his subjects, he stretches the boundaries of photography with his keen eye for the ethereal and whimsical. 
Being well versed in post processing via photoshop, he hopes to create images that are only limited to his and his subjects imagination.

Lucas Ambrosio

I’m a portrait and headshot photographer, originally from Brazil but currently based in Sacramento, California.
My passion for photography was discovered less than 5 years ago, as a believer in lifelong learning I'm constantly seeking new ways to make myself a better photographer, retoucher, learner, and overall professional.
One of my current goals is to become a better communicator so I can share what I learn with other people and hopefully make their learning curve a little less steep.
