Miguel was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and was raised in the United States due to his parent’s missionary work in the States. Miguel showed interest in photography at an early age after reading a Time magazine’s article on President Ronald Regan which included pictures of the then President taken by White House Photographer Pete Souza, who is currently Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama.
Through the years Miguel’s passion for photography grew and in 1992 he attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale where he gained a degree in photography. His first assignment was to photograph and document the Detroit newspaper strike in 1995 for Vance International. After five years of working and traveling for Vance International Miguel, decided to study film at FMU in 2000. While attending FMU he worked for IAX Studio in Kissimmee, Fl as Studio Manager; after 3 years working for IAX Studio Miguel decided to be become a free lance photographer. Since then he has photographed artists and people from political life such as, B.B. King, Ricky Martin, Chayanne, Eric Clapton, Luis Fonsi, Marc Anthony, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush. Miguel has covered NBA games for the Orlando Magic and photographed for an article of San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili.
In 2010 Miguel represents Prestige Vision as their photographer operating in Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean Islands, servicing billion dollar companies and multimillion dollar hotels, yachts and real estate properties.
Miguel is passionate about photography and wants to combine his love for photography in his work. His goal during a photo session is to capture feelings emotions of the person and not just what the person looks like, but also tells who they are for many years to come. Expressions tell a lot about who we are, but a photograph truly captures the feeling they are expressing at that moment.
Miguel creates photos that speak the needs of ad, modeling agencies, design firms and corporations.
"My goal is to produce photos that people will want to look at forever”
