Contributor Limelight: Roberto Valdez
Roberto Valdez has been exercising his strength of putting an amazing image behind a story and providing a visual connection for SLUG readers since fall of 2019. “[SLUG] took a chance on me, a brown kid who loved photography and felt like he didn’t have a platform, to show his skills and passions. Now I feel like my voice is heard,” Valdez says. Whether he’s taking photos for event galleries or portraits for a feature, Valdez puts professionalism and expertise at the forefront of his work.
