Felipe Jimenez Talented Young Photographer

August 9, 2012

Felipe Jimenez is a fresh faced 22 year old living in Orlando, Florida, with an eye for what makes a great image.

He is self taught and told me ‘as far as inspiration goes, I don’t really look at other photographer’s work. I actually find the subject I’m photographing to be inspiring. Everybody has just such a natural beauty, and that beauty is shown through their personality. That’s basically what I like to capture.’

‘ My goal is just to inspire. I like when people tell me that I’m different, and that my style has a value of truth. I shoot a lot more lifestyle, but I love fashion as well. I’m hoping to continue learning the ropes of the industry, and just keep getting better and better, and finding even more people to allow me to capture that vulnerable beauty we all have.’ I can’t quite decide whether he has a whole host of beautiful friends or a rare talent for creating stunning imagery, or both !

Felipe goes on to say ‘ I’m going to try to work with magazines, but I’m not sure which ones just yet. I’m new to this whole modeling industry because I’ve worked mostly with my friends and clients back in my little town where I go to school. I’ve never taken a photography course in my life. I started with design back in high school, and I’ve just always had a good eye for colours and creativity. I picked up my first camera in my sophomore year, and then got my own in my senior year. I’ve used that one until just recently when I upgraded to a brand new camera.’

Great to see such attention to detail and contact between model and photographer and consequently model and viewer.

Somehow I don’t think it will be long before this talented photographer’s work is sought after from higher entities. Great to meet a young guy online who clearly has such direction and self belief in his work, that it positively shines out. You can see more of his work on his Facebook page here.  Stunning work Felipe, remember us when you’re shooting for Vogue won’t you !
