Oh, hello! My name is Ernesto Araiza and if you're reading this is because you're interested in my work, so let's recap a little bit...

I was born in Ensenada, Baja California Mexico. Since I was a kid my dream was to be a race driver. The years passed and I got an Electronic Engineer job title but it was something that wasn't related to racing so after getting my degree I decided to test my luck starting to take photos of Baja races, more for passion than work.

Then I decided that this is what I want to do for a living, I invest all my time and resources to make it happen and well things have going well so far...

In my belt I have all the mayor Off-Road races in the US and Mexico like The Baja 1000 and Baja 500. Also other races like short course LOORRS and TORC, NORRA, King of the Hammers and the Rain forest Challenge in Malaysia. I'm the Official photographer of the biggest desert race in the US, The Mint 400 and I'm the only Mexican photographer to cover the Dakar Rally entirely (2016).

I always look forward to the next shoot, the next race always trying to express my passion thru my photography.
