Oscar Garcia

Oscar Garcia was born in Mexico City in the late 50’s, lived in Guadalajara, grew up in a large family of 7 kids. Married with a wonderful woman from the Northwestern Mexican state of Sonora, has three beautiful and intelligent children, all of them with a great eye for photography. He went to college in Mexico City to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Geological Engineering and fulfill his passion for Mineralogy, and earth sciences. Nevertheless, this passion for minerals is now just an expensive hobby for him. The family immigrated to the USA back in 1989 to work for an American manufacturer of petroleum equipment, same field Oscar has been ever since. His career has sent him to 32 countries so far, as an international area sales manager with more focus in Latin America in the past 10 years.

During his sales career, Oscar pursued a Master in Business Administration degree in Houston Texas, graduating in 2007. The objective was to get a little help to boost his sales career with new credentials. He currently lives in Houston, Texas in the USA.

Oscar’s first experience with photography goes back to the 60’s with a rudimentary camera owned by his Mother. He used to borrow it whenever he went on a field trip during college. He has bought his first digital camera, a Sony Mavica in 1998, its memory was just a floppy, and 1MB filled the diskette. Replaced in 2003 by another Sony, this one with 5 Mpixels, then soon a Panasonic with 8 Mpixels. He finally discovered the Nikon world in 2007 with a Nikon D40X. His current gear is a Nikon D90, which he believes is a great camera; however, he still misses the lighter weight and vivid colors of the D40X, now owned by his eldest daughter. Some of his photographs have been selected by either newspapers, aviation organizations and magazines.
