Dr. Monasterio's interest in photography started very early in his life when at age seven got his first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, initially his interest was on black & white photography and from there he moved to color, underwater photography (he got his Diver certification to be able to photograph the underwater world) and when the digital revolution came he switched and focused on a more professional approach.
Currently, he combines three of his many passions in life: aesthetic medicine, travel and photography to document the world as he sees it... in pursuing images that not only represent the beauty of the place but also its people and their culture to landscapes and the beauty and drama the world offers to us in places like Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.
Dr. Monasterio is also one of the leading specialists in non-surgical enhancements in South Florida, currently the Medical Director at MedSpa Miami in Coral Gables. He is a respected physician who has operated a private practice in Miami for over twenty years and was a Medical Director at South Miami Hospital for nearly fourteen years. He has trained in the U.S. and Europe (France and Spain) in aesthetic medicine. Dr. Monasterio also lectures nationally and internationally and he is a member of the French Society of Mesotherapy, a distinction he shares with only two other physicians in the United States being the only one in the State of Florida.
