My name is Ivan Calderon and I live in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC where I have lived for the past 9 years. I was born in Mexico City where my passion for photography started. I am an editorial and advertising photographer specializing in portraiture, lifestyle and travel photography. Vancouver offered me the opportunity to study Digital Photography at Vancouver Institute of Media Arts. Since finishing school, I have collaborated on multiple projects with artists, brands and gained experience in wedding photography. Most notably, I have been working for RYU Apparel in Vancouver for the past two years.
There are many aspects of photography that drive my passion and define me as a photographer. As an artist, I appreciate the ability of photography to capture and freeze a moment in time. In addition, photography is able to tell a story through that moment. I help my clients communicate efficiently ideas, experiences and emotions through the images I capture.
As an avid traveller, photography has enabled me to break cultural boundaries through taking pictures. I love to travel and meeting new people is part of that experience. My other passions are film and music. I believe they play a huge role in developing my style. I also love to hike and to play all kinds of sports. Mostly, I enjoy the simple things in life, and sharing them with my wife and our dog.
