Making the Impossible Possible
Esteban Toro seeks to inspire the community of photographers to dream big, pre-plan, plan and re-plan before, during and after a photo-trip to achieve outstanding images. We will discuss technique, composition and post-processing, but overall, storytelling to improve our photographs when on the road.
Esteban Toro is a travel photographer and film director based in New York City. Using a camera as an excuse, he has traveled to more than fifty countries with a passion to capture his experience of the world. He is a Sony Ambassador and BenQ Global Ambassador, and a Professor at the School of Visual Arts (NYC). He has led creative workshops, photography/videography expeditions and is a popular professional speaker. He’s a contributing photographer for Adobe Lightroom, B&H Photo/Video and Medecins Sans Frontieres and in 2021 he was a National Winner in the Sony World Photography Awards.
When Esteban is not out documenting a remote country, he’s working in the studio, researching new places to visit and choosing his next adventure. His career as an educator and photography curator has turned him into a restless person, always curious and looking for new references to share with his students. This passion turned him into an international World Press Photo Global Talent nominator. His work has been exhibited digitally and in print around the globe, as well as in collective and individual exhibitions, making him a well-known reference in his field. He is represented worldwide by YellowKorner Gallery.
