Kenny Salazar Photography


I met Kenny Salazar through the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival where he volunteers as communications director handling all social media and website related issues.

Our Valley is blessed with abundant wildlife, and Kenny’s artistic eye captures its verdant beauty using his CANON EOS  7D  camera.  Photography is Kenny’s hobby; he wishes it was a full time activity because he loves it so much. His photographs are available to purchase, they can be used in advertisements or as original art to decorate offices or homes.

Kenny kindly authorized the use of his photographs on La Vida Valle, a gesture I highly appreciate and hope readers  enjoy.  To see more of Kenny’s photographs please visit his website at   http://www.kennysalazarphotography.com/

These are some of his latest photos taken all around the Rio Grande Valley.  I have also included an article by Mark Reagan  featured last week in the Valley Morning Star where Kenny’s photo of an Oriole was featured.   http://www.valleymorningstar.com/articles/make-99525-rio-annual.html

La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" living in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Life, art and culture, poetry, prayers, travel, and camping! yes, that's my new thing. I blame the heat and high humidity for the madness. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
