Colorful Moments



Artist Statement:


Hello & thank you for visiting my website! My name is Denise Vasquez and I am a Professional Published Traveling Candid Photographer and Award Winning Artist currently based in San Diego, California. Inspired by my love for outdoors, nature, people and travel, my influences stem from a lifelong adventure both in front of the camera & behind the camera while growing up in New York City to living in Scotland, London, the US Virgin Islands & California. I've worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years as an actress, dancer, model, singer, songwriter, guitarist, comedian, host, producer, talent booker & more, so I know what it takes to help your authentic self shine. My goal as a photographer is to offer my knowledge, capture life’s colorful moments as they're happening, and share a positive experience while creating beautiful memories. Let's work together to make your dream photo session come true!


Denise's photography has been published internationally including Dreamy Magazine, MALVIE Magazine (Based in France), Photo Plus The Canon Magazine (London, UK) 2 page spread along with her story on what led to her ongoing "Bridges, Docks & Piers Series", on the covers of About Town Magazines (San Diego, CA), National Geographic Yourshot Daily Dozen (International online), and numerous Examiner.com articles she wrote as the LA Cultural Examiner.

Referred to by the media as being a "Modern Day Renaissance Woman", Denise's resume also includes being an Award winning published ASCAP singer/songwriter/guitarist, artist, writer, creator & Co-Author of "Sketch Card Mania" (IMPACT Books), as well as a SAG-AFTRA actress, stand up comedian, dancer, model, Host & Producer of: WO+MEN 4 APPLAUSE comedy & music variety shows, WO+MEN 4 A CAUSE events & Ladies Night Music Festivals.  Working in the entertainment industry both in front of & behind the camera for over 30 years, has led Denise to exploring & living in different parts of the world. Along her journey, she has also worked many jobs from being a photographer to being a wedding planner, live entertainment producer, promoter & booker, production assistant and casting assistant...which led to her traveling to many locations while scouting. Traveling allowed Denise to discover colorful landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, night skies and more. Over the years Denise has shared her colorful messages through writing, music, art & photography. Many years ago, Denise wrote a song called "Crayons" where she sings "We are an experiment, can we live together, grow together, as one race, the human race? We are crayons in the box, different colors, but all made the same, for one purpose, to color the picture.”
