Welcome

My name is Efren, I serve Fresno and surrounding areas. I invite you to view the gallery which pertains to the photography you are interested. If you are looking to preserve your Quinceanera memories, please look at "Rite of Passage" gallery to get a feel for my style, follow by contacting Ruiz-Ortega with any additional questions you may have and to schedule your photo date.

I have been photographing for over 10 years. I have exhibited at Arte Americas, Spectrum Art Gallery, and many ArtHop events throughout Fresno. My photography is part of many private collections and is available locally at Arte Americas, Spectrum Art Gallery, All Things Fresno, and General Grant Gallery. Of course You can contact Ruiz-Ortega to acquire a print from the Artist. 

Above all I enjoy working with families to preserve their memories and "time stamp" their milestones. Celebrating a childs announcement or birthday to a Quinceanera or Wedding I use a photojournalistic approach to help tell a story, in between I select images which I hope will become family heirlooms by employing my artistic vision.

Maria Ibarra is my partner in this endeavor, she will become the second photographer when needed, or sometimes third. Maria has become a great assistant with posing and lighting. And she does the hard work of maintaining the office and communicating with clients.   

Ruiz-Ortega now offers limited edition prints of new images.  Prints will be available through the Artist, signed and numbered, with certificate of Authenticity.

Images available trough this site will include Artist Digital Signature or Printmark. Artist choice.
