Luis Aguilera

USA

Luis Aguilera was born in Caracas, in Venezuela. As a teenager he moved to Miami to study art at Florida International University. A talented photographer and filmmaker, he has always been intrigued by new tools that make it possible to capture unique moments. Using camera-equipped drones, Luis Aguilera is currently able to fly over the American landscape 200 meters in the air to take photos of the crowded beachfronts of Florida. He is taking full advantage of new technologies – even a few years ago, getting such images would only have been possible from a helicopter or hot air balloon. His advertising work has received a number of awards, notably at the prestigious Cannes Lions festival but also the Epica Awards, Wave Awards, Webby Awards, and the Addy and Mosaic awards given by the American Advertising Foundation.
