¿Algún consejo para los aspirantes a fotoperiodistas? Si eres sincero y tienes algo que decir, esto se verá en tus fotografías. Si deseas trabajar profesionalmente, intenta inspirarte en otros fotógrafos y artistas de diferentes campos pero toma tu propio camino. Fíjate en las expresiones en lugar de la técnica. Una buena técnica es importante pero el auténtico arte necesita venir de tu interior. ¡Sigue a tu corazón!.
