I've been a big fan of photography since 2005, when I bought a Canon Digital Rebel. I was 47 years old at the time, and I started buying books and magazines and whenever I could got out to shoot. I live and work in Los Angeles, just a mile from the coast, so when I see a nice sunset I head for the beach. My favorite beaches are Manhattan Beach and Venice Beach with nice piers, waves and surfers.

I am a computer scientist by day, and enjoy working with computers. I learned Photoshop a few years ago and really love HDR photography. Now I almost always shoot bracketed shots for HDR. I love church interiors, and I will sneak a tripod into every church I can.

I own a Canon 7D, and several lenses. Canon 10-22, Canon 28-135, Canon 100-400, Canon 60 macro, Canon 50 f1.4, Sigma 10 Fisheye. Slik Pro 713CFII tripod with Acratech ball head.

My biggest challenge is to improve my artistic skills. I am quite nerdy and I understand all the technical aspects of shooting and digital processing. Learning to see is harder. For me, the best place to do it is on flickr. I have wonderful contacts, and over the years we've all grown together. I have learned a lot from them and look forward to their photos all the time.

    "Pedro is one of a very few truly great photographers working in HDR. His work is evocative and amazing; at times downright magical. He's also a great guy; easy to approach and ready to answer a technical question. I think the fact that he freely posts his original images alongside his HDR work shows that he's truly a giant of the genre.

    Keep 'em comin', Pedro. We love it!"

    "Your work in general is truly inspirational and gives the less talented
    something to aspire to. If I had a hat I would take it off to you, truly masterfully taken work of a standard that is rarely seen today."

    "A true master of nature photography.
    I so wish I was there at that time and at that place...
    and that, so it seems, is where szeke is at almost all the time.
    This is my first time writing a testimonial on flickr and I recommend checking out szeke's pictures... they are GOOD!
    Cheers,
    Marts."
