Omar Cruz Miami photographers

Omar Cruz is considered one of the most important portrait photographers among celebrities. He has worked with household names including President Obama, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera, Celia Cruz, Marc Anthony, Pitbull, Eva Longoria, Juanes, Shakira, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara and Thalia, to name just a few. In his commercial work brands like Got Milk, T-Mobile, Absolut Vodka and Pepsi trust his vision.

Omar was born in New York and raised in Puerto Rico. He started to experiment early on with light and shadows and eventually mastered that intuitive vision which makes every picture far more than a good composition. His career came up through the ranks during the 90s in Miami, with the boom of Latin music that allowed him to travel the world with his art.

His images have been featured in magazines such as Time, Vanity Fair, Vogue, GQ, People Magazine and People En Español to name a few. His photography accomplishes classic tones, sophisticated points of view, and a film treatment. Every piece of his work involves the viewer in such a way it brings them closer to his subject’s essence.

Guess what? He is now looking for an agent!
