Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Sergio Miranda

Photographer / Owner @ sermiranda.com

Manama, Bahrain
I am a photographer and digital retoucher. I have more than ten years experience in this fields and the variety of roles I've played enriched my tools to develop a message, joining all together to polish the best ideas.

I was born in Patagonia Argentina, I have lived in big cities and small towns; from SaoPaulo and Buenos Aires to Patagonia and learnt to speak many different languages.

For a some time I've worked as a photo editor in magazines, which gave me the chance to lead different creatives, producers, designers and models, to create content in a regular basis.

I'm young, optimistic, very good at improvising and a spiritual happy person. I practice yoga, Dj, produce photo exhibitions of my work, and also run a fashion brand. I'm always looking for new projects and ideas to keep my spirit expanding.

The final plot is that I like to be an orchestra man, getting involved with each one of the stages of a production.
