Beto Adame was born in Mexico City.
As a child he loved playing with different snapshot and Polaroid cameras that he discovered in his grandparentsâ€™ house. During that time, he went on many family trips to the countryside and other wonderful places, where his love grew for photographing the peaceful and the beautiful.
In high school, he spent a year as an exchange student at a boarding school on Vancouver Island, Canada, where his excitement and love for the outdoors was reaffirmed. After graduating he received his first SLR camera as a gift.
He simultaneously studied Industrial Design at the Anahuac University in Mexico City and Photography at the Centro Cultural Arte Contemporaneo. In addition he attended several workshops and photography courses at different institutions (Centro de la Imagen Mexico City, ICP NY, among others).
Before graduating in Industrial Design, he won several prizes in photo contests and also obtained his first photo assignment. This boosted his motivation to look for a job as a photographer. Right after finishing his bachelor’s degree he started working in a young editorial group, where he had the opportunity to travel all over the world and to develop his own style.
After working as a photo editor, doing reportage and focusing mostly on travel and lifestyle for a couple of years, he achieved his first advertising campaigns. Currently, he is working for the most important agencies and magazines in Mexico.
Beto is a young and experienced Mexican photographer who has shot a wide variety of essays and articles for magazines. He is married, the father of two boys, and he greatly enjoys the outdoors. These days heâ€™s teaching photography workshops and is doing commercial work. In his free time he pursues his personal photo projects, which range from Interior Landscapes, constructed pictures including auto representations, to other series experimenting with unusual cameras. In 2006 he founded Peluxe! Prod, a multidisciplinary collective that works on various advertising and artistic projects.
