Maurizio Solis, Maurizio Solis Broca. Photography, Montréal, Québec

I´m a Mexican-Canadian wedding photographer. Since my early years, art, specially painting, was a huge influence in my life, I really love how some artists can create big emotions and beauty from a blank canvas. I studied for a mechanic engineer, architecture was my second option, I´m fascinated with coherence of shapes in space. I became a professional photographer in 2011, trying to succeed in this new adventure I learned from the big guys, emulating their formulas and learning their technics, once I felt bonded to my camera, my very own style started to show up in my own images. The first couple years everything was about feeling secure with my work. With a beautiful wife and a four year old son, I finally understood the value of the wedding photography, maybe it sounds a little as a cliché but I believe that my photos will be the treasure of the future generations of the families I photograph now. I value journalistic photography style but I love creating images that can´t be seen with the naked eye, I love photographs that make you think and maybe some may not understand, photos that defy the logical thinking. I´m a guy with one feet on the ground and the other one step ahead. I say hello to you.
