My name is Juan Mendez but most people know me as “ Cebolla ”
I was born in El Salvador in 1975 and attended an American school since 1st grade, travelled all over Central America and in 1992 drove from San Francisco to El Salvador in 7 days and nights. Ran and managed my own surf tours company and surf shop by 2006 when I met my Chico born and raised wife in a beach in El Salvador.
My approach to photography goes hand in hand with travel and exploration, allowing me to capture a memory instantly, this all started with my love for nature and it’s ever evolving beauty.
I love to capture things, and when I say things is anything that catches my eye.
I like people and their interaction with one another and the environment.
My goal is to make photographs that draw viewers eyes and captures their mind.
I love passion, dedication and the stoke you capture in extreme sports.
I believe in freedom although everyone is a prisoner of their own reality and soul.
