In tandem with my personal and commercial photography projects, for the last 6 years I have been involved with the visual education process of young and interesting talents, mostly students of the Miami Ad School at the Winwood Art District, plus some private workshops, both in San Francisco and Miami, teaching Advanced Photography and Lighting, Color Correction and SmartPhone Photography for students of Advertising careers, Creative Directors, Art Directors, Copywriters, and of course, the future generation of photographers.

There is also an upcoming group of 2017 private classes, the Miami Visual Photo -Workshops with Jorge Parra, taking place both on locations and at the studio, to help refresh and improve the participant's portfolios with new cool and exciting content!

I recently traveled to Thailand for an amazing 3 week retreat to explore Art, Meditation and Creativity, and I will soon set up a workshop on these matters, using the learned experience and personal development that occurred within... Stay tuned!
