José V.

Average rating of 4.8 out of 5 based on 18 reviews

Hola. José studied photography at Syracuse University and graduated in 1990. That summer, he started a job in an advertising agency and that job thankfully turned into a successful career of 30 years and counting. He stopped doing photography for a while as his hands were full with advertising. He didn't know how much he had missed it until he got myself a Canon digital camera and it has been non stop since. He's one of the Island's most sought after photographers in only 2 years, doing campaigns for Puerto Rico's top fashion designers: Luis Antonio, José Raúl, Lisa Thon, Otto Style for Men, etc; has been shooting editorials for Imagen and In Puerto Rico magazines. Also has been doing many model portfolios and portraits.

More about José V....

What do you love about your job?

I live for creating beautiful, impactful images that tell a story and show off the subject matter's personality, or the clothes and accessories. My job is to make other people or other people's creation look as best as they can. Nothing fills me up with pride more than when a client is in love with the work.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I've done celebrity portraits, fashion editorials for Imagen, El Vocero de Puerto Rico, In Puerto Rico Magazine and others. I have also shot campaigns for local fashion designers like Luis Antonio, David Antonio, José Raúl, Lisa Thon, Reynaldo José, Eddie Laboyx, Herman Nadal, amongst others. I try to create a good rapport with everyone on the set. I try to create a fun environment where ideas are welcome. Even though I may have a specific idea or vision, I like the feeling that the shoot is a collaboration of professionals. I try to make jokes to lighten up the mood.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

Honorary Mention at the International Color Photography Awards
