I love shooting portraits. People always make for interesting and dynamic photos. This sequence was captured of a trumpet player who blew his horn for all of Cartagena to hear from up top El Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas– an enormous Spanish fortress originally built in the 1600’s to protect the famous port city from pirate attacks and other attempts at pillage and plunder of what was one of the most significant entry points in the New World. Today the castle stands higher and prouder than ever, and is without a doubt a major tourist destination on the caribbean coast of Colombia.

I find its history fascinating, the construction is beyond impressive, and the old stones provide an amazing setting to take photos. Since this first visit in 2010, I’ve already gone back 3 times to shoot, each one providing me new and cool ways to see and photograph the castle and its people, like this trumpet player who basically gave me these portraits without even trying.

More photos from this part of Colombia to come. Que tengan un muy buen fin de semana!!!
