About José R Ortiz 

I have always fascinated by photography since I got a camera gift sometime in my teen years. I started to photography sunset, the moon and other natural sights as I found it passionate in their artistic and technical aspects. I completed a Science BS Degree in 1992. I also graduated as Professional Photographer from the New York Institute of Photography (1998). Between 1999 through 2004, I attended some seminars and continued education courses in university and pro-photography associations in my town. In 2006, I started to photograph wedding and other social festivities. In the way to define my photographic preference brought me to shoot for a modeling academy (Galeria de Modelos, 2006-2008), for a tennis magazine (2008-2009: Puerto Rico Tennis Sport News Magazine), for children day care centers (2010-present), school pictures (2008-2010) and collaborate with wedding and Quinceañeros (Sweet fifteen) magazine Revista Festiva (2008-2014).
I love people (portrait) photography. Homeric is a composition using my sons’ names. Homeric is my artist’s name.
