Omar is a photographer who has worked on different photographic projects, such as events, food, lifestyle, product, social photography and portraiture. His approach to photographic practice began in Colombia when he studied cinematography. After working on short films and documentary projects for cultural foundations and non-profit organizations, he took a break from these activities as a videographer and started working on brand launch campaigns for multinational food companies; There he took portraits, product, commercial and lifestyle photography. This experience opened the way for him to later work as a food photographer in NY, where he has had the opportunity to do photo shoots in different types of restaurants throughout the city. There he has not only photographed countless international dishes, but he has also made portraits for restaurant owners, managers, chefs and staff. But his photographic journey goes beyond the workplace since he has also explored street photography and social photography, always in the quest for the magic that dwells in light, movement, color and form.

More about omar T....

What do you love about your job?

What I really love about my work is meeting with people. It gives me satisfaction to know that I helped them create beautiful memories. Also, it constantly gives me the opportunity to know new places, cultures and people. Photography has allowed me not only to express myself but also to materialize the ideas of the others. Photography has given me the opportunity to see the world from a different perspective, to find meaning in even the most common and everyday things and to experience aesthetic joy in life.

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

I have done several types of photo-shooting . Aside from carrying around all of my gear. I like to have an spontaneous and informal conversation with people prior to do the photo shooting for them; through this conversation I make them feel confident and I cheer them up to get the most out of their personalities so that they are ready and relaxed. Also I mindfully pay attention to how they want to be depicted. I try to do my best to make the photo shooting a nice experience that they could enjoy.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I was a Semifinalist in a national Canon photography contest in Colombia in 2017

A fun fact about this photographer

I used to assist to an experimental theater group in my city, I learnt how to express emotions with my body and some techniques to project my voice properly, I trained there for almost one year, four days a week. The rehearsals were really exhausting. We prepared hard to give an outdoor-play with a huge audience for the city birthday, I was a little bit nervous, fortunately the custom and make up helped me to performance with more confidence. I could see how people was concentrated in our acting. that was an incredible experience that I will never forget.
