Jose Angel

Photographer | Director | Cinematographer 


It all started with a simple dream of mine that later on was going to become my biggest passion and it was going to change my world completely. I wasn’t sure where this new journey was going to take me or how far I was destined to go. All I knew was that every time I picked up my camera and looked through the viewfinder, I would at some point be able to take pictures and tell stories through my images. Coming up in the photography and film industry is no easy task it's a very competitive industry, and I wasn’t sure how far I was going to make it. It wasn’t easy coming up and getting opportunities I had to put in the hard work and dedication and earn a name for myself and I wasn’t willing to take any shortcuts or cut corners anywhere because I wanted to earn it in the end. I knew that the minute I stepped foot into this industry that I was going up against some of the best in the world, but that wasn’t going to stop me because I wasn’t trying to be one of the best I was just doing it for myself because it’s my biggest passion.
