My name is Juan Carlos Rivas (JC) I was born and raised in Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico and I reside now in San Diego, California. I have been so fortunate to travel for the past 17 years to more than 30 countries, immersing myself in the beauty of many cultures and learning about them too. During all my travels I always found that the best souvenir I could take with me was a captured moment in time. Whether it’d be people, nature or something as simple as a chair… all of these objects, places and cultures build what today is my photographic baggage. Baggage Claim Photography is my outlet to share with you the amazing moments in time I had the opportunity to witness. I hope you enjoy!
