You know those blogs where you get those annoying pop-ups, forms and ads before you can even start reading an article? Well, this one is nothing like that. This blog is not motivated on profit.

This blog is motivated on the aim to inspire, educate and entertain anyone with an interest in food and portrait photography and everything that I learn along the way as a photographer, through martial arts (hence the lens ninja tagline) and as a human. I don’t claim to be an influencer, nor an entrepreneurial expert; in fact, I’ve messed up quite a few times in epic proportions but I’ve learned a thing or two. Most importantly, my opinion is honest. Those who know me say that I was transparent long before it became hip to be so.

Please stick around if you like photography, art, philosophy and want to pick up a tip or two about Mexican food. or if you want to get to know me better.

My name is Xavier (Xavo for my friends) and this is my personal journal. Welcome!

Xavier D. Buendia-Food & Portrait Photographer
