Sol Tamargo – Adventures in the World of Del Sol Photography

Today it is my pleasure to speak with the vibrant and beautiful Sol Tamargo. Sol is an artist with a camera and has a passion for nature and color. She also participates in our local Superwomen’s Club, a group of women supporting each other in business and in life. Sol spent her younger years in Cancun then moved with her family to Guadalajara. When life got to be a dull gray, Sol decided to move back to the coast to bring some much needed-color into her life. She says moving to Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya, in 2001, made her feel like she was coming home.

A Snapshot in Time

Sol’s uncle gave her a camera and she started to learn about photography. One night while sleeping, Sol had a dream that she was on the beach taking photos of brides. The next day when she awoke she knew she was going to be a photographer and she went after her dream with everything she could muster. She made a scrapbook with samples of her work and set forth hunting out someone to give her an opportunity. She started out shooting destination weddings for local hotels but due to her huge talent brides-to-be now seek her out.

She has shot wedding related photography in Hong Kong and Thailand, in addition to the multiple beautiful locations in the Riviera Maya. When wedding photography starts to feel repetitive she turns to nature to spice things up. She goes underwater to shoot with sharks and manta rays.
