Picture Perfect Practice!

Roberto Valenzuela is a wedding and fine art photographer based in Beverly Hills, CA.  His academic background is in Economics and Marketing. However, it was his 10 years as a concert classical guitarist, which has given him a unique outlook on how to master photography, having used the same practice techniques to master his musical instrument.

Roberto Valenzuela is a 70-time International award winning photographer and three-time International first place winner.  He serves as a photography judge for the 16×20 WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), PPA (Professional Photographers of America), European photography competitions and the WPPI International wedding album competition in Las Vegas, NV.

Roberto’s private photography workshops and speaking engagements are held worldwide. His goal is to encourage and inspire professional photographers to practice their craft when not on the job, as any other artist must do so in order to perform. He is an active teacher and platform speaker at WPPI and has served as the keynote speaker at other International photography conventions.

He is the author of the top-selling photography-training book titled PICTURE PERFECT PRACTICE.

He was named one of the top wedding photographers in the world by Junebug Weddings (One of the largest wedding resource websites in America).

Roberto will not turn down the opportunity to play a good table tennis match and flies his high performance 3D remote control helicopters every Sunday afternoon. He can also be found at the local bookstores looking for materials on something new that he wants to undertake.

 

Speakers/Programming Subject to change due to circumstances beyond PhotoPro Expo's control.
