Roberto Valenzuela is a wedding and fine art photographer based in Beverly Hills, CA. His academic background is in Economics and Marketing. However, it was his 10 years as a concert classical guitarist which has given him a unique outlook on how to master photography, having used the same practice techniques to master his musical instrument.
Roberto Valenzuela is a 70-time International award winning photographer and three-time International first place winner. He serves as a photography judge for the 16x20 WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), PPA (Professional Photographers of America), European photography competitions and the WPPI International wedding album competition in Las Vegas, NV.
Roberto’s private photography workshops and speaking engagements are held worldwide. His goal is to encourage and inspire professional photographers to practice their craft when not on the job, as any other artist must do so in order to perform. He is an active teacher and platform speaker at WPPI and has served as the keynote speaker at other International photography conventions.
He is the author of the top-selling photography-training book titled PICTURE PERFECT PRACTICE.
He was named one of the top wedding photographers in the world three years in a row by Junebug Weddings (one of the largest wedding resource websites in America). In January of 2013, Roberto Valenzuela was voted by photographers all around the world as one of the top 10 most influential photographers in the world by Shutter Magazine.
