Last few weeks in New York City were really inspiring. The level of motivation to start new exciting projects after everything I experienced and happened there is quite high! I´m thrilled to do more, to go for it, to work hard towards new and crazy projects! Let´s go for it! Let's do it! Actually I´ve been a bit quiet on here because I´ve been really busy on my return home working on some new things! Nothing too specific yet but... let´s see where all this heads to. I´m excited and thirsty of new and fresh projects! I´ll share more when things start getting together haha. Thanks everyone for all the encouragement lately which certainly pushes me to do more and better things! THANKS really! I'm stoked for what the future will bring. #newyork #visittheusa #nyc #manhattan #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #travelwriting #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #natgeo #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

So we got there! 30k! In the end was not on the actual day of the birthday but know what? Today is the actual day we're celebrating the birthday party with some friends here in NYC. Last week was a bit too busy and rushed to organise something. So, in some way, the gift arrived totally on time haha. Today is the celebration! Thanks so much everyone! 30k for 30th birthday! Now on a more serious note, 30.000 thanks to all and each one of you. You're not 30.000 followers, but really 30.000 friends! And I mean it. I appreciate every and each one of you that genuinely are supporting and following my photography career, stories, and sharing all the ups and downs of this; supporting me through all your great comments and extremely kind and nice words of encouragement. You certainly give energy and a big boost to keep at it! Thanks so much everyone. It's a really beautiful thing connecting with so many good and warm-hearted people from all around the world, and so much positivity! I owe you a really big thank you. Indeed I owe you 30.000 THANK YOUS! Btw, New Jersey was on fire the other night. Great view from Manhattan, New York. #visittheusa #newjersey #nyc #newyork #usa #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #travelwriting #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #natgeo #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

Yes, this is Kerala, and no, I'm not in Kerala at the moment. Im in New York City as some of you may know. There's no photos of New York yet, simply because I didn't have the time to even pick the camera. I've been incredibly busy attending seminars, a 3 day tradeshow, introducing myself to potential clients, writing emails, replying emails, following up on those emails, did I say emails? Meeting people, looking for meetings and people whom I can show my work to... Doesn't seem as this is the expected work of a travel photographer right? haha All this is part of a little big adventure I decided to do coming here to New York in order to give it a shot (the 1000th shot give it or take it) at working on what I truly love and I'm passionate about. I really want to head my career into the type of images, stories and things that fulfill and excite me. The type of things that make me jump out of bed excited for the day ahead. What I truly feel is the right way for my career. I wasn't feeling like I was heading the right direction lately (doing more and more commercial work to pay the bills) but I don't want to refuse to chase the things that fuel my passion day by day and just dream bigger and go for it. Designed and printed a portfolio, business cards and after many sleepless nights of getting everything ready I made the bags and came to New York with full commitment to chase that career direction. Often its not seen the great amount of work and how far someone has to go to even start seeing a brief ray of light on making a living out of photography or any creative career. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I love it and won't change it for anything else. Won't be able to do anything else beside this. This is how I am. But here I am 7 years into it and still haven't made it completely. I keep trying, I keep trying. And 90% of the time your work is not even about taking photos. Hope that percentage gets increased anyway haha. I read a quote today that relates quite a bit to this: "Everyone wants to be successful until they see what it actually takes" (...continues in first comment).

Tomorrow Im turning 30 years old and as an incredible coincidence we may reach 30k followers on the exact same day I turn 30. What an incredible birthday present that would be. And its also the Lunar New Year. What an alignment of events right? Coincidence?…

Tomorrow Im turning 30 years old and as an incredible coincidence we may reach 30k followers on the exact same day I turn 30. What an incredible birthday present that would be. And its also the Lunar New Year. What an alignment of events right? Coincidence? So can we hit 30k followers tomorrow?? Can you help in this challenge? Tag friends on this photo encouraging to follow, tell your neighbors, tell Pappa, tell Grandma, tell your little brother and that old friend of school! Are they already following @alejandro.photo?? haha. Can we make 30k for my 30th birthday!? Challenge accepted! Lets do this. Btw, cant thank all of you enough for the great encouragement and constant support you give me day by day. You cheer me up on bad days were things seem to not advance. All you guys give such an energy to keep pushing and working hard to make this dream of travel photography a career. Actually with all this energy in an impromptu and sudden act of craziness I decided to make my suitcase and come to New York to try and make it. Sleeping in a friend's couch for 2 weeks with the plan of trying to meet the maximum potential clients and try to find a work project to makes this a reality. Travel magazines, photo agencies, art galleries... Printed my portfolio, business cards and plan is knock door by door until I make it. Game is on! If I dont try it, I'll never know right? You know someone on New York I should knock their door btw hahah? Wish me luck! Im on fully committed mode. Thanks for all the positive energy guys. Starting today with the New York Times Travel show! Lets do this! And remember the 30k challenge haha. Encourage people to follow. Can we hit 30k and 30 years old, and Lunar New Year on the same day haha? #exploretocreate #liveoutdoors #liveauthentic #instatravel #neverstopexploring #artofvisuals #travelgram #folkmagazine #livefolk #vscocam #vscogood #bleachmyfilm #stayandwander #beautifuldestinations #travel #passionpassport #earthpix #thegreatoutdoors #forgeyourownpath #visualsoflife #folkgood #natgeolandscape #natgeotravel #wanderlust #travelblogger #lookslikefilm #goneoutdoors #agameoftones #nakedplanet .

"Cuernos del Paine" are definitely some of the most impressive, craziest and weirdest looking mountains I´ve ever seen. They are located in the stunning Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. In the left part of the frame you can even see the rock towers which give the name to the whole National Park: "Torres del Paine" #chile #visitchile #discoversouthamerica #FridayPhotoFanChile #visitsouthamerica #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #natgeotravel #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

Like taken straight out of a tale of princesses, adventures, villains or Eastern romances of the Arabian Nights; the Hawa Mahal stands in the so called pink city of Jaipur in Rajasthan as a one of a kind beautiful piece of architecture. In the middle of all the pink buildings that conform a pink city, the tale couldn´t be more charming and complete with such a palace. The translation of Hawa Mahal would be something like "The Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the Breeze" and was so named because it was actually a high screen wall built so the women of the royal household could observe street festivals while unseen from the outside. This wall is on the edge of the City Palace and connects with the women´s chambers or Zenana. What's your favorite palace or castle you've seen during your travels? #jaipur #hawamahal #india #incredibleindia #rajasthan #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #natgeotravel #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

I´m longing some tropical warm weather now, remembering this day in the South East Asia trip. After a ride in a small traditional boat through turquoise pristine waters we arrived to the island of Koh Rong in Cambodia. We were absolutely alone in this small remote island. We spent the day in its white sand beaches swimming in some of the most clear and transparent waters I've ever seen. You could see the bottom of the sea so clearly that it almost felt there was no water at all. With some distance you could see the water turning into green and turquoise beautiful tones that in contrast with the white sand of the beach made an almost unreal view. It was a very "Robinson Crusoe" experience staying alone in this secluded island. What's your favourite beach? Where have you seen the most clear waters in your travels? Share your experience in the comments to build a list of "must see" beaches 👍 #kohrong #kohrongisland #cambodia #beach #southeastasia #travelphotographer #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #IamATraveler #BPMag #TakeMeBackpacking #natgeotravel #bestvacations #earthofficial #travelblog #teamtravelers #BBCTravel #LoveTheWorld #backpackerlife #igmasters #MoodyGrams #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #TeamCanon #CanonBringit #keepexploring #exploringtheglobe #openmyworld #goexplore .

The sun sets in the calm, quiet desert another day. Secluded from the buzz of society, cities, worries, crowds, problems. A harsh but peaceful environment. The sun sets yet a day more in the desert, delighting and gratifying its few hardcore survivors who don't give up. #baja #bajacalifornia #desert #descubrebc #disfrutabc #discoverbajacalifornia #travelblog #mexico #visualAmbassadors #vzcomood #LifeOfAdventure #EarthFocus #DiscoverGlobe #BestVacations #TheGlobeWanderer #mindfulness #HeaterCentral #BeautifulDestinations #RoamThePlanet #MoodyGrams #DiscoverEarth #WanderOut #Canon_Photos #Awesome_Photographers #EarthOfficial #MyCanon #YourShotPhotographer #TheImaged #TeamCanon #CanonBringit .
