Simon Velazquez is a Mexican-born photographer from the small town of Ajijic, on Lake Chapala. Raised by artist parents, his life always revolved around art in one form or another. As a teen, he discovered the love for photography and the freedom it provided; but it wasn't until his early 20's that he finally pursued his passion. He also found a new kind of freedom in combining photography with his wanderlust. Simon specializes in landscape photography, both natural and man-made wonders, and the fleeting moments that leave us all with a desire for discovery and adventure. His current focus is on architectural and long-exposure photography.
