Meet Your Photographer

Thank you for visiting Amado Rivas Photography.  I'm glad you're here.  My name is Amado and I would love to create your portraits.

Like most parents I first pick up a camera in 2009 when I youngest son was born.  I wanted to capture those moments that I knew would only come around once more.  It opened my eyes to a whole world of art that I knew was there, but never really paid attention to.  As the years went by I started to see light differently.  It was more than just sunlight during the day and a light bulb in a dark room.  It was shadows, highlights, direction, color- and I had to learn to control it.

I've enjoyed getting to know the people I photographed over the years and I'm really looking forward to getting to know you.
