Hello there! I'm Juan Zarate, a seasoned professional photographer based in the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. With over a decade of experience in the world of photography, I've had the privilege of working on a diverse range of projects, making each one a unique piece of visual art.

My journey as a photographer has been a fascinating one, and it's allowed me to explore various facets of this captivating art form. Whether I'm collaborating with clothing and jewelry brands to showcase their products in the best light or capturing the magical moments of weddings and events, my camera is always ready to tell a compelling story.

One of the things I'm most passionate about is portrait photography. It's not just about capturing faces; it's about revealing the personality, emotions, and uniqueness of each individual. From the glitz and glamour of fashion photography to the timeless elegance of quinceañeras, I've had the honor of creating captivating portraits that will be cherished for a lifetime.
In the corporate world, I've had the opportunity to work with various companies, helping professionals put their best foot forward. Whether it's crafting the perfect professional headshot or creating branding images that represent a company's essence, I understand the importance of a striking and authentic image in the business world.

One of my specializations that I hold dear to my heart is film photography. The tangible nature of film photography brings a sense of nostalgia and authenticity to the art. I've worked extensively on capturing portraits and lifestyle moments on film, each frame telling a story with a unique texture and character.

More about Juan Z....

What do you love about your job?

I am deeply passionate about my craft and committed to excellence, and I thrive on the challenge of turning moments into masterpieces. This job it's not only an opportunity to frame and freeze memories, but it's also a great opportunity to know other people and share my art with them.

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

I have done many family photos. At first, most of them come with some expectations, and not knowing how to pose. I first explain how is going to be the session, but also take the time to listen to them, and understand what photos they would like to get out of the session. Talking and making them feel comfortable is very important to get the best results. Most of the time I like to play some background music to set the mood for the photoshoot. I also try to show them some of the photos so they can see the progression of the session, this helps them get more confident, and comfortable with the session.

A fun fact about this photographer

I had the opportunity to live in Europe for many years, and it was a great opportunity to learn about the culture and the French language.
