“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
Roberto Flores grew up with a passion for the outdoors, sports, nature and the arts. Hiking, climbing and cycling through his home state of Morelos, he originally embraced photography as a way to document the landscape he loved. Later in life, he moved to Mexico City to enroll in the Escuela Activa de Fotografía, where he would become an instructor. During his time in Mexico City, he also worked on the photography archive of Bob Schalkwijk as well as photographing for local journals.
His interest in environmental heritage and restoration brought him to San Diego in 2015 to work at WWOOF farms. He later worked in the California Native Plants industry as a manager for Moosa Creek Nursery and Village Nurseries. In early 2017, Roberto also joined Joshua Tree National Park as a volunteer for their non-profit partner the Joshua Tree National Park Association.
To expand on his knowledge of nature as well as to explore beyond the confines of San Diego County, Roberto is undertaking living on the road with his partner Gabaccia in search of a more meaningful life. Both strive to give back to the environment through responsible adventuring, volunteering, and documenting life in the outdoors as they travel through Mexico and North America for the next few years.
