About Miguel Solorzano Photography

Photography has become a goal that I enjoy working towards. For many years, point-and-shoot was my way to capture emotions, but since the introduction of DSLR to my life the viewfinder seems to be endless. Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, and currently a resident of the ever-inspiring New Orleans, Louisiana, its architecture, culture and food have been my muse since I landed in the French Quarter late 2007. The beauty of photography is the ability to learn and get to practice what I enjoy. I seek challenges that would enhance my point of view, and sharpen my creative eye. There is still a lot to be learned and experience, and I cannot wait to see what else I can come up with. “Follow your dreams; transform your life” Paulo Coehlo The Equipment Beginnings – Panasonic Lumix G-10 Upgrade – Nikon D7000

Confederacy of Cruisers 

If you ever visit New Orleans, take a Confederacy of Cruisers tours around the French Quarter.  This time around, I joined a group of friends for a Historic Cocktail Bike Tour.  Yes, biking around town while enjoying New Orleans’ best libations.  Note: dressing in costumes makes it all that more interesting.  #followyournola

Happy 4th of July 2015!  

This year, I convicted a friend to go to Algiers Point (historic neighborhood located in the West Bank of the mighty Mississippi, directly across from the French Quarter, New Orleans), and camp out, eat some McClure’s BBQ, drink cheap beer, and enjoy the firework show. After all, it was my first celebration of independence as an American citizen.
