Art & Life with Adrian Burlaza

Today we’d like to introduce you to Adrian Burlaza.

Adrian, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
My name is Adrian Burlaza, I was first introduced into photography in 2008 when I took an intro black & white photo course. I instantly fell in love with taking images with my camera and seeing them come to life by my own hands (literally, in the dark room). From that point I committed myself to this craft of image-making and scoured the internet, learning everything from nerdy equipment specs to creative techniques.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My passion is to capture the essence of each moment; the unedited, uncut, unfiltered snippets of life. I believe these moments bring power and truth, thus rendering powerful, convicting imagery. As a photographer I want my images to leave a lasting impact, holding wonderful memories that can be relived and enjoyed.

In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
In the wedding photo industry I think the biggest challenge is market saturation. There are so many photographers trying to break into the professional market, especially in San Diego, that it is difficult to stand out from the crowd. I believe we are so flooded with images from social media that our appreciation for the craft has diminished. I think photographers are trying to be trendy with their images, mimicking editing styles or compositions, and in the end no one can distinguish a difference.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I am completely digital, you can see my work on my website or follow my journey on Instagram. I always love getting feedback, comments, and criticisms as I am always learning. So feel free to get in touch through my website or Instagram!
