About

I am Mayra

 

I convey stories through the images I make.

My purpose is to reveal the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people

Born in El Salvador, I grew up in love with the life of my little town -Concepcion de Oriente- in the eastern part of my country. My grandfather was the town storyteller and every night we gathered around him to listen to great adventures, legends of our gods or everyday aspects seen with imagination.

 

With a background as a business woman and entrepreneur (I worked 20 years as an engineer), I have worked in countries around the world (on 5 continents). 7 years ago, while living in India, I decided to focus onmy passion: photography, and founded my professional photography business. Today, I call Denmark home.

My customers are private or corporate from different industries: hospitality, fashion, media, education, consultancy, finance, engineering, design, beauty, IT and interiors. With all of them I work towards the ideal image that captures the convergence of light, moment and composition to communicate the message.

 

As a professional photographer, I love to tell stories through the images I take – capturing the true spirit of the moment in time for generations to come.

 

I create images that tell a story... a unique story

To sum it up:

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
