Bio - Tomas Orihuela

From a very young age, I fell in love with photography. I played with cameras on and off over the years, but it wasn’t until 2015 that I decided it was time to stop playing with a camera and actually learn how to use it! I wanted to create the images I have always envisioned, but I did not know how to capture. It has been an exciting journey to finally turn my passion for photography into something I’m proud to display and share with others. I love photographing motion - runners on streets and trails, athletes on obstacle course races, dancers on stage, and people in the streets. Capturing the overall environment so that the image tells a much bigger story has been the key element of my photography style.

I'm based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. I am a registered professional engineer in the State of Louisiana where I design offshore platforms for  the Oil & Gas industry. I am also an endurance runner where I've completed 10 marathons plus a 39-mile trail race. I’m also a three-time full Ironman finisher.  As a triathlete, I cannot wait to get through the swim and cycling portions of the race  in order to get to the sport I love the most, running!

One of my trail running photographs was published on a two-page spread in the March 2017 issue of Trail Runner Magazine. See the "tear sheets" link below to see all of my published and licensed work.
