OLGA S. ORTIZ

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHER & ART DIRECTOR

SOME PEOPLE KNOW FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL THAT WHEN THEY GROW UP THEY WILL BE A DOCTOR,  A LAWYER OR A FILM DIRECTOR, WELL, THIS WAS NOT MY CASE.

 

When you do not find your vocation, the only way to look for it is trying many things; I studied Industrial Design Engineering, I did a master's degree in Art Direction, internships in a record company and in an advertising agency, I was an intern at an audiovisual entertainment company, I worked editing video and making animations, recording how to assemble and disassemble components of household appliances, I made a TV spot ...

 

Now I think that the link was the art direction, I have a lot of fun creating compositions. I always liked painting, graphic design, scene design and doing crafts. The kind of photography I build brings it all together.

 

If you are looking for an esthete to take a photograph of your product with a twist, a poster design that makes the viewer stop in the infinite Instagram feed, I am the person you are looking for.

I've been working on photography and art direction since 2020, and in this short period of time I have accumulated 11 nominations for the 7th Fine Art Awards and 4 photographs awarded with honorable mention at the International Photography Awards 2021 in the professional category. I have exhibited in Florida (United States), Madrid and Zaragoza.

If you are a brand or an advertising agency interested in working with me, or if you are just someone who wants to made a personal order, you can tell me your proposal by sending an email to sortizolga@gmail.com.
