Passion for photography

Photography became a passion for these brothers very early. What began as a hobby in their youth, was quickly shown to be a profession in which nature & people, travel and, of course, every day life was shown from different angles with an artistic view. The camera is a constant companion, well-known topics are always rediscovered - each time under completely new premises and different angles.

ByAlfonso GutierrezThe lights turned off, the Internet stopped buzzing, the tables emptied, the Congress arrived at its end, good bye Barcelona.

I was born in this city and have seen its immense growth and changes throughout the years. Allow me to be proud of my city, as I have been this last week when so many companies and delegates and speakers and even more sponsors and even some photographers came and enjoyed a Congress which was so well organized by Karen Sahoy, Christina Vaughan, Sylvie Fodor and the staff of the CEPIC Berlin office.
