IT HAS BEEN A LITTLE OVER A YEAR SINCE ABEL CRUZ STARTED DOING PHOTOGRAPHY PROFESSIONALLY, BUT LOOKING AT HIS WORK, YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO SEE THAT. IT LOOKS AS IF ABEL HAS BEEN SHOOTING ALL HIS LIFE. IN FACT, LOOKING AT HIS WORK YOU CAN HARDLY BLAME US IF WE CONFESS WE HAVE A CRUSH ON ABEL CRUZ.
Back in march 2007 Abel Cruz started his professional photography career under the name Cruz Photography. Along the way a lot of things happened and he now finds himself merged with Jorge Freire from Physique Culture. Together they operate under the name PhotoStudioMiami, which leave little to guess where they are located.
Abel Cruz was born in Nicaragua on February 21, 1973. He moved to the United States when he was 5 years old, and lived all of his childhood in Miami. Only recently he relocated to Hollywood. In Florida that is. He has a background in theater and art, which definitely shows through in his photography work. At this very moment he is still exploring different styles, which also allows him to shoot all kinds of subjects. He has shot pretty much everything, from pin-up, fetish and beefcake, to fashion and abstract, slowly defining his own style and signature in his work, and always pushing the envelope to add a little something to the shoot.
Abel always welcomes new ideas and strives to do something different everytime. "It has been an incredible journey so far," he adds. "I have been blessed to have met some of the most amazing, creative, beautiful, and supportive people. I am happy to call them all my friends." Creative and with a big heart… sight… isn’t that enough to have a crush? –B-
