Husband, father, and corporate employee— Lorenzo's life revolved around home, work, and his daily commute from the suburbs to the city.

Then, one day in the Spring of 2005, he found himself staying at The Little Church in midtown Manhattan in the wake of a marital separation. Living in virtual isolation for three months, he had a rare chance to re-examine his life.

Quite unexpectedly, he found himself wandering around the city to take photographs, a passion he had let slide in the years of pursuing a career and starting a family. During his nightly sojourns through the streets of New York City, he was reminded of some important life lessons—lessons too easily forgotten in the blur of everyday existence.

Now one of the premier up-and-coming photographers on the streets of New York City, 25 Lessons: The Art of Living chronicles Lorenzo’s journey into the amazing world of digital photography and how it helped him to reconnect with the world around him, and to live a life that is truer to one’s self.

In this unique book, which bridges word with image, he describes how the deceptively simple rules of photography can also be applied to the art of living. Inspirational and poetic, this book will not only spark readers’ creative energies, but also reawaken their passion for life.

Today, Lorenzo has over 25,000 photographs published on flickr.com—one of the world's most popular photography websites—where his photos have been seen over 4 million times and where he ranks as one of the site's most popular photographers. In 2008, he was chosen to be the HP Be Brilliant Featured Artist (www.hp.com/go/bebrilliant).

25 Lessons: The Art of Living is slated to be a worldwide best seller. Speaking through the universal visual medium of photography, 25 Lessons tells Lorenzo’s inspiring story with over 500 different photographs. The book itself has over 60 testimonials praising Lorenzo’s remarkable work from fellow photographers in over 12 countries including Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Qatar, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. The publisher, Blurb, now transacts in over 57 countries. And the website for the book, (www.25Lessons.com) is translated into 10 languages including: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.

Lorenzo is a graduate of the World Arts & Culture program at the University of California at Los Angeles, as well as the graduate School of International and Public Affairs program at Columbia University.

Along with being a writer, poet, graphic designer and photographer, Lorenzo is a director of marketing and communications at a Fortune 500 company in New York City.

Since taking up digital photography in 2005, his photography has been featured in fotoMAGAZIN, Germany's premier photo magazine, and his photos have been cited, posted and published by over 330 other blogs, websites, and print publications.

Photographer Lorenzo Dominguez has the uncanny ability to find beauty in his surroundings. Also gifted in the use of words, his book, 25 Lessons I’ve Learned (about photography), (blurb.com) is much more than the typical tech manual on photography. It’s more like a roadmap for using your heart, soul and senses to capture images through the lens of a camera.

When a change in life events had him soul searching, Lorenzo took to the streets of New York with his camera, photographing every night using his digital “point-and-shoot” cameras. He was mesmerized by the color and movement of the city and feels that “pictures see what we do not see.” His mantra is that the craft is liberating and everything possesses its own beauty. He stresses the allure of black and white images because they emphasize form. Inspired by paintings of the masters, they train his eye for the use of color in photos.

“25 Lessons I’ve Learned (about photography) rekindles passion in photographers and photojournalists. Reading Lorenzo’s advice can spark and stir the Muse to grand proportions. He offers strong advice to always have your camera ready to shoot. He also advises shutterbugs to employ their imagination and see the world with child-like eyes. One main ingredient he specifically looks for in his subjects is attitude. This is apparent in many of his photos. The choice of backgrounds is as important as the people in them. Read his book and you will fall in love not only with photography but also in the area in which you live, regardless of its socioeconomic standing.

Serving as a mentor, Lorenzo covers the importance of persevering, staying calm and seizing the moment. Any successful person can confirm this. His eye for the unusual, results in extraordinary shots worthy of emulation. From contrast to optical illusion, he inspires others to lighten up and think outside of the box.

Photographing the Big Apple, a city with “aesthetic milk and honey,” he found that it offered him endless wells of inspiration. An honest and often candid view of life is what he peddles on Flickr, a photo sharing site, and elsewhere. His desire is to help others do the same. He challenges fellow photographers to “make something out of nothing.” It’s a thought that sounds Seinfeld-like in sentiment. Perhaps there’s a kinship with the show about nothing; he likewise emphasizes the importance of employing humor in the craft.

25 Lessons Learned (in Photography) will fire you up to dust off your camera and hit the street running. You will gain a fresh perspective on seeing things you’ve never noticed before or previously took for granted. Not only is his book valuable for writers and photographers, but anyone who needs a fresh outlook on life.
