He has been an International first place winner three times and has been recognized by his peers as one of the ten most influential photographers and educators in the world. He has earned over 100 International awards for his wedding and portrait photography.

Roberto has been featured most notably as a wedding photography expert in publications like Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, Rangefinder magazine, and Professional Photographers of America magazine.

Roberto Valenzuela is the world's top selling author in the "wedding photography" book category. The book is sold worldwide and has been translated into multiple languages. His new book, Picture Perfect Posing broke the sales record for single book sales in his publisher's 27-year history. Both of Roberto's books have been translated into Chinese, Indonesian, Spanish, German, Portuguese, with even more translations planned in the coming year. You can find his books at Amazon, or any Barnes and Noble in the country.  Finally, in March of 2016, Roberto released his latest book titled Picture Perfect Lighting.  This book's pre-order numbers propelled it to the #1 new release in the Photography Lighting category in Amazon.

The most notable being the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) competition held in Las Vegas, Nevada annually.

Outside the world of photography, Roberto is a high performance remote control helicopter pilot, a (not so amazing anymore) classical guitarist, and a table tennis fanatic. He is also a major foodie and is still searching for the most amazing red wine and the most pungent cheeses.
