Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Juan Zambrano presentation last night at Camera West in Walnut Creek. And a special thank you to Juan for sharing his jaw dropping images.

We saw a wide variety of photos from fashion to product and each and every one showed Juan’s unique vision and his unparalleled eye for detail.

Since 2003, Zambrano has established a reputation for flawless creations in global campaigns for Fortune 500 companies, fashion editorials and commercial work. His images and retouching work have appeared in such publications as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ and Elle.
