Private tour guide Martin

Martin O.

Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico

Mexican Guide and Photographer Educated at the Universidad Nacional de Artes Plásticas in Mexico, my major is in Visual Arts, required that I took classes in all mediums, but always knew that guiding people thru my beloved Mexico was my passion.

Now, I am a freelance guide in the Mexican's Wine country, having 12 years experience in Mexico and over 5 countries. I am Wine, Extreme sports, Mexican history, Shopping unic Mexican craftings, and Nature guide. Most of my guiding has been focused on outdoor adventures, tourist destinations, wine's industry and historic sites. I have also been hired as a freelance guide for mountain bicycling in Germany (Bavarian Country) and Spain (Balearic Island), in Mexico: Cancun, Cozumel, Hisla Mujeres, Los cabos, Loreto, La Paz, etc.

Since boyhood, I had a passion for observing and recording the natural world and the people who inhabit it. During my teenage years, my interest in people and the wild was a consuming one, but it would be 8 years later before I picked up a camera in order to combine photography with guiding people.
During the intervening years, I worked in various outdoors sports-related jobs such as water sports and rock climbing. I was attracted to these careers because they were risky and dangerous. They also taught me, first hand, how to capture the intense beauty of man in the outdoors. Later, as I matured, I developed techniques for portraits and weddings while living in Chicago, Boston and LA.
Today, I devote more time to my own Guest House in Ensenada, Mexico.
