Isaac Ibarra 

Isaac Ibarra discovered his passion at 17 years old while telling stories of Marines operating across the pacific. He says it became clear to him that capturing moments, giving perspective and inspiring people would be his mission for the rest of his life. 

Isaac's journey led him to endure rigorous environments in multiple countries and has been published on National Geographic Your Shot, CBS News, cover page of Stars and Stripes, Marine Corps Times and many more. In addition, he broke a DVIDS Facebook record with two video products that reached more than 9 million people. 

"Telling stories is an intimate journey," said Isaac. "The more my mind opens through other people's experiences the more passionate I become to reach out and touch other people's lives."

"The most rewarding thing to me is knowing I can give a voice through the art of photography/videography... to me that's a beautiful thing."
