I love it is an honor to be Mexican.

I love the Prehispanic Culture, our History in General, the food, the destinations and landscapes that we have are unique in the world.
Tell us a little about your experience in this @swimwearfashionshooting Weekend Swimwear Fashion Shooting?
Well, it was a challenge to carry out this project, starting with having saved it for 8 years. In 2010, together with other people, the project was founded in Mexico City, we managed to make three editions, two in Los Cabos and one in Acapulco México, I left it for personal reasons, since I moved from Mexico City and started working on other projects. This year 2018 in the month of May, I decided to go back and change the concept a little, keep the idea that it is a weekend with fashion and trends of beach, but instead of making a catwalk and presenting a whole collection, I thought about doing photos and make-off of the collections of participating brands and designers to help them with media and social networks, I really like to be a promoter and help the Fashion Industry in México, because otherwise we do it as Producers or Businessmen. Hardly the Institutions or Government supports this sector, I have not yet understood why it is not given impetus, in countries of Latin America such as Colombia and Brazil there is a great market and work for all who are in it.
I had been looking to work with Marco Corral since 2011 but he had not been given the opportunity, I have always admired his work, he is a very talented person, of good taste and style. In the same way with Shirley Maurina @shirleymaurina I met her when I just arrived in Mexico, I was impressed with her beauty and for a few years we have maintained a nice friendship, we have many friends in common, I see them as a family, although we spent a lot of time without seeing each other, when there is an opportunity to meet again, it is as if there were no distance. With Aline Sartori @alinesartorioficial it was the first time I worked, I followed her for some time, and she is a very simple person, she makes you laugh all the time, I loved working with her for this edition. Gabriella Giacchetto @gabriellagiacchetto is the second time we worked, I recently made his professional modeling book since he moved to live in Cancun. With Gabi Graf @gabi_graf I really wanted to meet her I followed her on their social networks, but many times the life we have in the network is not reality, so I decided to find the means to invite her to the project. Initially I thought I would not get an answer by Instagram message, you will know the amount of messages received per day and have the time to read and answer each of them, it’s like winning the lottery, the possibility is one in a million, but the truth is that I flow very well, from the moment I told him about the project and what I had in mind, he told me that he was happy to come. So we made the Dream with the support and company of great friends and collaborators. In the same way, I want to invite all of you to follow the interviews, editorials that are going to come out and the Special that we are going to launch next to Naluda Magazine @naludamagazine in the Spring – Summer 2019.
From my work team I can tell you that I have been working with Marlon for about a one year, he supports me when he has time in his studies, with Fatima has been very father to work, since I taught him Fashion Seminars in 2013 at the Universidad Estudio Creativo of Cancún and my classes were just Photograph Producing, then it is as if we were doing the Doctorate together every time we have the opportunity to work. In the same way I want to thank Vo Evolution @voevolution who were during the two days of work with us, Natacha, Cuah and Marisol. Arturo Durán @arturoduranfotografo who was in charge of the video part we had already worked in Mexico City making models books and was very happy with his work, I hope you can see the videos on our social networks, they will like it a lot.
Did you like the food?
Yes, of course, part of the food was made in my family’s house with the taste of Mama that gives it a unique touch, likewise in Loco Tulum @loco_tulum we ate very well and they treated us like Kings.
Casa Coyote Tulum @casa_coyote of a former partner and friend Enrique Sada since we lived in Mexico City we made several projects together, in December and January they will have a new section of the Hotel (Casa Xamán.)
In Villa Duendes @villaduendesakumal they welcomed us very well, Diego Carrasco and Lorena Aragón supported us at all times for the development of the Project since we presented the idea. The place has excellent facilities, you have everything you need to not leave the jungle and enjoy nature. The company Anhexo @anhexobodas and Macrame Playa @macrameplaya for Yehuda Madero and Ysamo that managed to create something special in each location and day.
