Seeing the vivacity of life through a camera...

Combining a personal eye with an authentic, marketable vision, Jose delivers stunning images using his years of experience with analog & digital photography. His journalistic, purist, and contemporary approaches form ideas through images, catching moments that tell stories through his lens.  

Jose's long standing career with photography spans over 20 years. He has been fortunate enough to assist some of the top editorial and fashion photographers and set designers in the industry, learning hands-on, and gaining experience working with local, national, and international brands & magazines. 

An autodidact in poetry, Jose holds a BA from New York University with concentrations in poetry & commercial photography, and a Master's in Corporate Communication from Baruch College, City University of New York. 

Jose is also a savvy and functional digital video editor, using non-linear film & digital practices, and is familiar with working on multiple roles on set. Up to date, he's delivered impressive results to, among others:

New York Academy of Sciences, WB CH11 (previously WPIX-NY CH11), CNN Latino (previously BuenaVision/WBQM-NY CH3), Nike Marketing, New York University, Harm Reduction Coalition NY, Wycleff Jean / The Fugees, Pink House Boutique (Arizona & New Orleans), & Java Magazine (Arizona).
