Photography is a part of life
Maritza Torres-Rios was born in Salinas CA and moved to Lockwood when she was one year old. Lockwood is a very small town it consists of a school that is K-8th, a mobile home park, a store, and a lot of ranches. Her family owns two ranches in Lockwood that consists of vineyards planted by her family. Every year there were people working at the vineyards and she always took pictures of them when they were working. Maritza wanted to be an agricultural engineer because she enjoyed working with her dad out in the vineyards but she got introduced to photography and she thought that she wanted to be a photographer.
Maritza is a wonderful person with a true eye for beauty and aesthetics.
