About Ernesto Ruiz
Ernesto Ruiz is a Minnesota-based landscape photographer. He lives in the Twin Cities with his wife, where he also practices architecture and enjoys boating, dancing, camping, and as much travel as possible. His interest in photography was born in 1994 when he bought an EOS Rebel S for a student trip to Europe. Twenty years later he bought his first full frame DSLR and recommitted himself to pursue his passion. He recently launched the Slow Photography Movement, a collaborative effort that focuses on the quality of the photographic experience, and on creating meaningful connections to place. Ernesto’s work has been published and exhibited, and he often participates in art shows in the Twin Cities (Minnesota) area.
