Alejandro Velarde, born and raised in Peru, moved to the United States in 1999. He currently resides in San Francisco, California
Alejandro was deeply inspired by the natural beauty of San Francisco and began to pursue his life-long passion for photography soon after moving there. His love of nature and fascination with natural light patterns led him to specialize in landscape and nature photography.

He enjoys traveling to exotic locations and becoming immersed in local cultures in order to find the most unique and unforgettable images. Nevertheless, some of his favorite locations for photography are just a short drive from his home. Living so close to so many beautiful San Francisco locations has allowed him to capture these familiar spots and bring them to life in the most unique way.
