Luis came to us at the nationals and did such an impressive photography job for us (for nothing) that I am delighted to be able to promote his J24 pictures and his normal business photography services.
In 2004 Luis hung up his apron for the last time as a qualified chef who has worked in the USA, Europe and Caribbean. He had owned a bar in Port Douglas, tossed prawns on a trawler for a season. He has extensive and varied experience as an employer and an employee in a range of settings.
Luis’ fascination with images started quite young. He decided to take his love of image making to the next level where he went back to school in 2007 as a mature age student to study and immerse himself with other people with the same mindset. This lead him onto a couple of commercial photographers who he still assists to this day in between shooting his own stuff.
Says Luis, “I always enjoyed sports, growing up I played soccer for the local club during my teens, then it was all about Surfing/Skateboarding/Snowboarding/Photography. As a qualified chef I had the opportunity to travel and work all over the world, during this time I decided to follow my passion for sport photography. Once I arrived home for good, I went back to school to study full time Applied Photography for two years, here I was able to get in contact with commercial photographers, The Herald Sun and other sporting photography companies. After several years of this I decided to start SPORTSNAP and when Doug MacGregor contacted me about photographing the J24 Nationals, I was thrown in the deep end so to speak … Which was a good thing…”

Says Luis, “After living on the coast for many years in Port Douglas I never got involved with sailing?? ….. I wish I did…”
