Fracisco Estrada and Liga MAC

 – Art & Wine event for the benefit of Liga MAC’s students –

An evening of Art & Wine for the benefit of Liga MAC’S students, 4 photographers, 4 photos to be raffled and wine for donation. 

Francisco Estrada one of the artists to be featured.

No one captures the natural beauty, culture, history and romance of Los Cabos quite like Francisco Estrada. The talented and much in demand photographer has a flair for dramatic imagery, for framing his subjects in original ways, and for illuminating the indescribable qualities that make life at Land’s End so very special.

Since moving to Los Cabos in 2002, the Mexico City native and former treasure hunter’s exquisitely realized photos have graced the covers of trend-setting lifestyle magazines like Architectural Digest, México Desconocido, Cabo Living and Los Cabos Magazine; and his artistic gifts have been put to picturesque use by a who’s who of Land’s End luxury resorts and real estate developments, including One&Only Palmilla, The Resort at Pedregal, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, Hilton Hotels, Ritz Carlton Residences, Auberge Resorts, Discovery Land Co and Ohana Real Estate.

But Los Cabos is only part of the story. Francisco’s passion and skill have not only earned him prestigious photographic assignments across México, but throughout the world, from Memphis and Mexico City to London and California.

PhotoMexico is his flagship enterprise, a boutique commercial and fine arts photography agency that allows him to travel to the far corners of the globe in search of breathtaking panoramas and one-of-a-kind adventures.
