R.J. Carrasco

has been a member since Apr 2009 and goes by ximenace.

Living in the Old West Texas town of El Paso, Texas. Went into photography as a hobby, now as an entrepeneur. I write/shoot for Sun City Biker, a local biker magazine, and Spotlight El Paso newspaper, which has given my first real gig. It took me a long while to call myself a "photographer", not a teacher. Now, this has been my only job for the last few years and I've allowed the camera to take me where-ever it leads.
