My Work

I am a photographer based in Medellin, Colombia, specializing in capturing great architecture and interiors. My career as a photographer has taken me to great projects nationwide with major architectural and interior design companies in the country, among others.  I have also been published in several magazines and won two awards, which gives me great pride.


My career as a professional photographer started late in 2015, after having worked in a major national company as a business manager, with excellent results. I made the most important decision of my professional life. Gave up the job that gave me financial stability and recognition, to become the main character of my own life.

After taking a professional photography course in Madrid, Spain in 2015-2016, I returned to Colombia with the firm conviction to realize my dream as a great photographer and intrust my skills to all those that would believe in me.

Step by step, with my personal projects and those of some new-found clients, I have advanced as an architectural photographer. I have specialized in this area and have paved the way to another dream, which is to be recognized worldwide as one of the best photographers representing my area.

I am also a passionate traveller. I’ve travelled to many countries around the world learning about the unknown, the different cultures, its gastronomy, habits, customs and architecture. With each journey I fill my life with great experiences.

This is me. Carlos Velez: the guy behind the camera lens composing each one of the images that are created through emotions, feelings, space connection and most of all from the inspiration of big dreams in my career.
