Hello, my name is Jesus.
A little bit about me, I have 3 amazing kids. I consider the youngest is my twin because we are very similar.
My career in photography began in 2009 when my daughter came into this world.
I started to take pictures of my daughter almost every day. This is how my passion grew, and now it’s how I make a living.
Of course times has been changed with new technology but photography will always be the same for me, I use digital cameras and medium format 120 film cameras too.
Film has soul. Film has feeling. That’s why I shoot film along with digital at every wedding to create timeless photos for every couple,
I like music, good wine, travel and a lot of coffee...
We are told that a photograph captures a moment of time, and removes it from the temporal continuum, so that the photograph can bring that very moment across time. Apparently, in a photograph we can see a moment from the past, but see that moment as still present. This idea and others like it imply that photographs represent time in a sense that is distinctively different to other kinds of image. Various kinds of visual image represent time (pictorially or non-pictorially), but not in the way that a photograph is said to ‘capture’ time.
I’ve been shooting analog for almost 6 years now, and all I can say is: analog has truly changed my life and what I think about what it means produce photo imagery. My first deep contact with analog photography was during a engagement session back in 2014, and back then I would never imagine I would be shooting film today, in 2019
I love film for its color, dynamic range, grain and what it can do with natural light, there is still a time and place for digital. There are times when I prefer my digital files (especially in low light situations). But overall, film has made me more aware, has pushed me creatively, and has given me a new perspective in my life as a wedding photographer. I feel I am a better photographer for incorporating film into my workflow.
