Get to know your Instructor:

Isaac Alvarez is a commercial photographer, director, and artist based in Los Angeles, California. Isaac is well known for his dramatic portraits that resonate emotions while giving the viewer a powerful insight into the lives of his subjects. His work is a reflection of contemporary/cinematic. While his images are often on the edge of any situation, photographing the situation is not nearly as interesting as photographing the edges of human emotions.

Isaac Alvarez has been a professional photographer for many years. He studied photography early on at the "Art Institute of Los Angeles" located in Santa Monica, CA. He then worked at a studio located in Monrovia, CA assisting a well-known furniture photographer. Soon after, he was applying and expanding on what he learned in projects from upcoming models, artist and agencies. Concept projects have taken him from the streets of midtown Los Angeles to colorful sites at Santa Monica and the sun-drenched beaches of California's coast. Isaac's love of photographing people has to lead him to work with some of the top public relations firms in Beverly Hills. Isaac Alvarez views the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such he often uses the tools of modern photography - different film stocks, filters, digital enhancement - to try to capture in an image the emotions he felt at the moment he tripped the camera's shutter. Working in a wide variety of areas, Isaac specializes in portrait and commercial photography with a touch of fashion and editorial.

Isaac's photographs have appeared in various media including magazines, posters, commercials, billboards, catalogs, and advertising materials.
