Randy Alvarado is a documentary photographer who focuses on capturing the work of non-profits organizations and NGOs both locally and around the globe. He has traveled to 23 countries on five continents to experience and capture the visual stories. He is hopeful his images will encourage others to look at the world in new and exciting ways. His passion for capturing the “story” of the work done by these important organizations is aided by 20+ years of executive management experience in private business, allowing him to quickly ascertain the message and get beyond the daily noise to capture the "soul" of the subject. His photographs inspire on a deeper level, encouraging the viewer to experience the organization in new and meaningful ways while providing the necessary positive emotional connection to bring the organization’s mission into clear focus. Randy Alvarado is represented by Kalida Art.
