Meet Carlos Andres Cruz of La Fotoperrería in Brickell

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlos Andres Cruz.

Carlos Andres, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have been a photography teacher for more than 20 years, helping people find their own voice as photographers expressing the beauty their eyes can see. A few years ago, I felt that I wanted to focus on my sense of life and found that I needed to reconnect with own voice as well once again. I felt was in pieces, with unconnected talents and abilities and decided to work towards putting them together as if it were the construction of a puzzle.

Prioritizing my main passions I invested all my energy and time in this goal, and in a way became my own student. My passion for dogs and photography led me to become an outdoors dog photographer specialized in creating images that reflect the dynamism, joy, and character of dogs in relaxed, enjoyable environments.

I see photography as a vehicle through which I can explore the world and learn about people, finding meaning to diverse aspects of life as well. And dogs inspire me, I have come to learn a lot about myself and humans in general because of dogs.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The biggest challenge as an artist is staying focused so I can make a living out dog photography and keep creating.

Tell us about your business.
Because dogs are authentic, I really enjoy creating images of dogs being dogs, always giving their best.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t call it luck I call it the power of awareness. I can see how the planets move because of the power of connections.
