Featured Photographer - September 2015

Manuel Dario Castellanos Mother Nature has never produced an "ordinary" object or living thing. Extraordinary too, are the works of Manuel Castellanos, an artist with the gift of bringing the beauty of nature and everyday things to our attention through a sharp eye and the lenses of his camera. Manuel, a former glazier who found his true calling in midlife, ascended the ranks of the local photography scene through strict adherence to a professional credo and dedication to his craft. He sharpened his credentials through training at the TRI Community School of Photography, Covina, California. Utilizing his Nikon D80 with 18-105 lens, Manuel, a proud Guatemalan-American, takes his inspiration from the glory of his Ancient Mayan heritage and brings his worldview to the objects which surround us but we never see, and like a true artist, captures his subjects in that instant, at that unrepeatable moment and cements the images in a digital space. Thus, every piece is unique and is one reason why Manuel's works are to be valued. His works have been exhibited at art shows in San Juan Capistrano, Monrovia, Sierra Madre and Big Bear, California and at The Parkhurst Gallery and San Pedro Art Association, in San Pedro, California Manuel's color and black and white images can be printed on canvas or photo-quality paper stock and are expertly mounted and framed for delivery. When an executive office, a public space or a home is in need of a special thing of beauty, give consideration to one or more of the works of this rising star who labors within our midst. Manuel Castellanos is indeed one of our homegrown treasures. His works are available for a private viewing at 9355 Calle Vejar, Rancho Cucamonga, CA. 91730. Call 909 223-3595 or e-mail castellanosphotography@yahoo.com for more details.
