About Eduardo Barraza | Photojournalist


I am a multimedia journalist with over two decades of experience. I shoot photographs and video, as well as write stories in English and Spanish. I am skilled at producing and editing video. I am a “multimedia journalist” in the sense that I can fully develop a multimedia story (text, photography, audio and video).

My work has been licensed by:

ABC Clio, ABC Nyhter, ACP Magazines, Business News, Cengage Learning/The Gale Group, Cornell University Press, Daily Mail, Discovery Digital Networks, Discovery.com, Edizioni Conde Nast, Focus.it, Gruppo Editoriale L'Espresso Spa, Hachette Education, Havas Worldwide Paris, HowStuffWorks.com, Kristeligt Dagblad, Lonely Planet Publications, Loyola Press, McGraw-Hill Higher Education, Medienfabrik Gutersloh GmbH, Microsoft, National Geographic Society, New York Post, New York University Press, News UK, Open Democracy, Pearson Education, Shape.com/FitnessMagazine.com, Southern Poverty Law Center, Stichting Global Voices, Telerama, The Guardian, The Week Online, Tullo Marshall Warren, Village Voice Media… and others.

My main area of action is in Metropolitan Phoenix, Maricopa County and Arizona. I can travel to the Arizona-Mexico border and elsewhere in Mexico.

I am a freelance photojournalist able, available and willing to cover stories locally or regionally for media outlets that need, compensate and value this type of professional journalistic work. I understand and meet high quality standards for serious media buyers.

My passion has been covering social issues since I was in journalism school in Mexico City, and while interning and later working for newspapers and magazines. My greatest inspiration was not precisely a journalist but the famous Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada, a famous illustrator who chronicled the period previous to the Mexican Revolution, mainly on broadsheets. He inspired me by lending his talent to popular causes –sometimes clandestinely and anonymously– and by siding with the underdog, as he witnessed government repression unfolding in the streets of Mexico City.
