Alexis Cuarezma is a Nicaraguan-born portrait photographer and director based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He specializes in on-location, in-studio portraiture, and stylized narrative short films. Alexis developed a passion for photography at CSUEB, where he studied art, graphic design, and photography.

 

His cultural heritage was a prominent influence as a volatile Nicaragua forced Alexis’ family to emigrate to the United States when he was six years old. Alexis has received inspiration from French Neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David, Nicaraguan poet Rigoberto Lopez-Perez, Ruben Dario, and his namesake, Alexis Arguello, a professional three-time world champion boxer and politician. Alexis is also involved in boxing photography.

 

Alexis Cuarezma is an Alumni of the prestigious Eddie Adams Workshop (Barnstorm XXIV) and commissioned for assignments through NIKE, Sports Illustrated, The L.A. Times, The New York Times, HBO, and several international publications.  His touch has graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, boxing’s “Bible”, the esteemed Ring Magazine, and that of Undisputed Fight Magazine. Additionally, he was featured on the covers of SEEN, Fighting Fit, and Boxing News Round.

 

Distinctions include the PPGBA’s Photographer of the Year (2012-2013), Portrait Photographer of the Year for five consecutive years (2009-2013), Ted Gurney Portrait of the Year (2012-2013), and Print of the Year in 2011.
