About Diego Echeagaray

I am a photographer, book publisher, illustrator and writer.

Before becoming a full-time photographer and book publisher I used to work as a mountain guide in Mexico, USA, Canada and the Himalayas of Nepal. I also worked as a sea-kayaking guide in Baja California and Belize, and a white-water rafting guide in Mexico.

Education

I studied Graphic Design, drawing, illustration and painting techniques, screen printing and engraving, as well as writing and literary composition. I am fluent in three languages: Spanish, English and Italian. My main interests are history, archaeology, geography and literature.

Events

I began working as an illustrator and photographer in 1981. I have specialized in editorial, landscape, architecture, nature and documentary photography (in Mexico, Central America, Canada, Alaska, India, and in the Nepalese Himalayas).
