Recently Awarded 2010 "Best Visual Artist" by Creative Loafing Magazine.
The action shot is where I live and I wouldn't have it any other way. Maluco Studios is owned and operated by Anesti Vega and consists of young and dedicated professionals that serve as the subjects of my work that push the boundaries of conventional filmmaking, videography and photography.
My background includes martial arts, fight choreography and cinematography, parkour/freerunning, military/tactical, extreme sports and oh so much more. My experiences have taken me around the world, from Canada to Brazil, the UK to Thailand and I'm not done yet.
I make it clear; I'm not your standard photographer. I embrace the versatility and efficiency I need to get the job done. The more difficult the shot is to get, the more likely you will see me there getting it.
What does "maluco" mean? It's a Brazilian Portuguese word and I like to think it translates to "anyone who does not think or do like the others", but you can just call it "crazy".
I'm looking to shoot with anyone who is interested in getting great action shots! Martial arts, parkour, skateboarding, surfing, underwater/scuba, skydiving, and almost any other sport or extreme activity you can think of!
I have standard rates and I have done freelance work for major companies and celebrity clientele, but usually willing to negotiate and/or barter based on the project. So pitch me any ideas you may have and we can see about making it happen!
