We had the good fortune of connecting with Jackie Gallardo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jackie, what do you attribute your success to?
For me, success is the effect of a desire that builds up and accumulates satisfactions, motivating to correct errors and possible limitations and that drives my goal to reach goal after goal to always be close to the summit, making me hope every day to continue doing what that I like and it makes me happy.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am 100% dedicated to fashion photography. Every day I am proud to grow my list of clients who continually request my services. With almost 9 years of dedicating myself to fashion photography, I have gone through good and bad things, I appreciate both because they have given me the necessary learning to handle myself in this profession. They say that when one door closes another one opens, my tenacity and perseverance and not giving up have led me and kept me where I am today. The lessons I have learned would be that you are going to run into many stones on the way, you would have to turn the page. and learn from the mistakes you make, responsibility for me is key, if you are talented but irresponsible there you lose everything. Nowadays I do what I love to do the most, which is fashion photography, I feel lucky for that.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love to eat and I think everything would start from there, I would take her to eat lobster from the Baja, the best tacos in the city and visit the vineyards, there is a wide gastronomy. Walk along the beach and watch the beautiful sunsets.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Definitely my family would be the first thing that comes to mind, without the support and backing of my family everything would have been more complicated, they have been a great boost for everything that I propose.
