Life Photology bio picture

Welcome to my Blog!

Herzen Cortes:
Photographer by passion (and accident). Decided to pursue photography after
spending 19+ years in the Information Technology industry where he successfully
led teams and ran operations across the Latin America, North America and Asia
Pacific regions for some of the most successful software companies. 

In 2007, I co-founded Photo Xpeditions
(, a travel photography workshops and tours outfitter
that promotes, in partnership with some of the best photographers in the world like Mary Ellen Mark
and companies like National Geographic Expeditions and the Santa Fe
Workshops, the best learning experiences while travelingto some of the most beautiful places on earth. My portfolio can be seen and you can also visit my online store and proofing site at
