Alejandro Santiago


Alejandro Santiago was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in Miami, studied Digital Design at Parsons School of Design in New York City. He currently lives in Toronto where he writes for 500px’s ISO.

His love of photography began on the streets of Miami and a Lomo LCA 35mm film camera. His camera has taken him all over the world photographing portraiture and live music. Writing for ISO is his way of sharing his knowledge so photographers don’t have to learn things the hard way–like he did.

Alejandro brings the studio to the streets playing off landscapes and his subjects to tell a story through his lens. His photographs have appeared in Maclean’s Magazine, Photo District News, The Globe & Mail, The Miami New Times, Feature Shoot, Now Magazine, The Grid & Fab.
