JORGE RESTREPO
PHOTOGRAPHER

I am Jorge Restrepo, I explore and document the world and my surroundings with my camera.

 

My kids were the reason I became a photographer.  They are my why!  The journey started in 2005 as a desire to photograph my kids growing up, playing sports, and during school shows.  Now, I use my camera, and teach others, how to document life, tell stories, and freeze moments: portraits, sports action shots, events, landscapes, nature, the dark skies and the stars, wild life, or flowers… there’s always beautiful scenes to photograph.

 

Photography is art and is science; it’s given me an opportunity to see the world in a whole new perspective, a way to capture the beauty people and places have.  

 

My "why" is simple, it’s to create memories!  One image is the ticket to remember that special day, that special person, that special place, that event.

 

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

— Karl Lagerfeld
