Hi! I'm Alvin Manuel. I'm a Southern California photographer currently located in Los Angeles. I've photographed weddings, portraits, and special events all over Southern California.
When I was younger I loved to sketch. I would sketch everything and anything from future cities, to exotic cars, to sleek planes, to fancy boats. Then I began to sketch people. I began with portraits of friends I knew and even some I didn't know. I'd also sketch scenes of people doing things, their activities and their moments. I sketched on everything and anything and I sketched every chance I could get!
Then I found a new love: photography. Photography opened up a whole new world for me. It helped challenge, exercise, strengthen my creativity, and stretch my imagination. When I first started, I captured everything and anything, photographing whatever, whenever and wherever I can. Eventually I went full circle and came back to my true love, people (Isn't it amazing how life does that!). I guess you could say that I didn't get into photography because I couldn't draw. I got into photography because I could!
So feel free and take some time to look through my galleries and blog. If you are interested in having me photograph your moments please contact me.
