Student’s Photo Voted #1 in 3rd Annual Cozumel Aerial Photo Contest


We Have a Winner…..


The Winning Photo

Following four days of heavy traffic on the Fly Cozumel website, the votes have been counted and…




825 voters took to the internet to place their click for their favorite photo of Cozumel.


Closing out on midnight, the final tally proved to be a nail-biter.


So much so, in fact, that just four votes separated first from second place.

On Monday morning, however, the dice had been rolled and a winner chosen.


Yes, it’s final, folks.


It’s our pleasure to congratulate Juan Esteban Gutierrez Cisneros, a sophomore at Julia Ambros High School.


Juan is a hobby photography who likes to take close up pictures of things like food and flowers.


Although he studies photography at school, he has yet to purchase his own camera.


Asked about his experience, Juancho as he is effectively known by friends and family, commented that, “It was an incredible experience.”


“I’m used to taking close-ups, so to be up in the sky taking pictures was really drastic and fascinating.”


He did try to stay up to see the final tally. However, as the clock struck midnight Juancho was already in bed fast asleep.


He woke up to the news of his victory.


3rd Annual Photo Contest Prizes


Fly Cozumel and Cozumel4You are presenting the winner with one shared prize and one special prize just for Juancho.


As a thank you to all students who participated, the four photography lovers will take a joint flight to visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere by plane.


Juancho, however, gets a special prize all to himself.


Flo Serfati of Serfati Photography fame will provide Juancho with his very own photo seminar “From Preparing a Shot To the Final Image” which includes a personal landscape photo session followed by one hour of a photo editing tutorial.





Fotografía de estudiante elegida como #1 en el 3er. Concurso de Fotografía Aérea

Tenemos un ganador. . .

Después de cuatro días de mucho trafico en el sitio web de Fly Cozumel, se ha realizado el conteo de votos y…




Un total de 825 personas emitieron su voto a la fotografía favorita de Cozumel.


Cerca de la media noche, el ultimo conteo probó ser sumamente emocionante.


Tanto así que tan solo cuatro votos separaron el primer lugar del segundo.


Sin embargo, el lunes por la mañana los dados ya habían sido lanzados y un ganador elegido.


Sí, amigos, es decisivo.


Nos complace felicitar a Juan Esteban Gutiérrez Cisneros, estudiante de segundo año en la Preparatoria Julia Ambros .


El pasatiempo de Juan es la fotografía y gusta de hacer tomas de primer plano de cosas como alimentos y flores.


Si bien estudia fotografía en la escuela, aún le es necesario adquirir su propia cámara fotográfica.


“Acerca de su experiencia Juancho, como lo cariñosamente le dicen los amigos y familia, comento que “Fue una experiencia increíble”.


Estoy acostumbrado a realizar tomas en primer plano, por lo que estar en el cielo tomando fotografías fue verdaderamente drástico y fascinante”.


Se mantuvo despierto hasta el conteo final de votos. Sin embargo, conforme el reloj llevaba a la medianoche, Juancho ya se había dormido.


Se despertó con la noticia de su victoria.


Premios del 3er. Concurso de Fotografía


Fly Cozumel y Cozumel4You entregan al ganador un premio compartido y un premio especial, sólo para Juancho.

The Winner


Como agradecimiento a todos los estudiantes que participaron, los cuatro amantes de la fotografía viajarán juntos visitando la biósfera de Sian Ka’an por avión.

Pero Juancho recibe un premio especial.


Flo Serfati de Serfati Photography dará a Juancho un seminario personal de fotografía llamado “Desde la Preparación de una Toma Hasta la Imagen Final”, que incluye una sesión personal de paisajes, seguida por un tutorial de edición fotográfica.
