Vodagraph is my (Lou Lozada) photography work, since I also work in advertising as a creative director.
I'm a multiple winner of the CLIO, Se Habla Español, FIAP, CRESTA, New York Festivals and ADDY Awards - winning Best of Show one year. I've also received a One Show pencil, an ANDY award and the aforementioned Cannes Lion. Additionally, my work has been featured in PRINT magazine, awards annuals and even a college-level advertising textbook.
Aside from my exceptional career in advertising, I'm a published writer of creative and editorial material and also freelance as an award-winning advertising copywriter, translator and speechwriter. A long-time musician, I was a founder of the Spanish-rock band, Tango36 (SONY records) and I'm also a published (ASCAP) songwriter.
Since 2003, I've been handling advertising shoots and even photographed an award-winning print ad campaign for a local ad agency. I've become increasingly involved in surf and water photography and have been published in several surf publications, both online and in print.
Additionally, I'm also working on some unique abstract face portrait photography.
During my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, writing, surfing, movies, good conversation with friends, spending time with my two children, photography, playing guitar, working on pro-bono projects, serving on the executive committee for the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and watching Miami Dolphins football and Pittsburgh Penguins hockey.
I'm a graduate of the Miami Ad School portfolio program and also hold a bachelor of arts degree in Communication (Journalism) from the University of Central Florida.
