Judge: Ivan Duran
Ivan Duran is an award-winning photographer based in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
He splits his time between wedding photography and artistic photoshoots.
He was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico. As a kid, he loved painting and drawing just as much as he loved taking apart wrist watches and fixing car radios.
It wasn't until he picked up a camera as a teenager that he found an activity that combined his artistic sensibilities with his love of technical challenges.
Photography has been his passion ever since.
He is currently a MagMod ambassador and one of the photographers for Team Mexico in the World Photographic Cup.
He also teaches photography workshops in the United States and Mexico.
