Meet Hector Tellez and Alberto Luna Lara of Hector Tellez Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hector Tellez and Alberto Luna Lara.

Hector and Alberto, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I always showed an interest towards photography but it wasn’t until I finish my bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences that I truly decided to put more work into it. My dad gave me my first camera, a 35mm Nikon FG-20. I took a photography class back in college, everything was dark room stuff, nothing digital. I enjoyed the craft you put into truly developing an image. I decided to take some photography classes and with time I started developing a bigger interest in the whole photography world. I am a traveler so I am passionate about who the worlds function in different parts of the world. I believe that the streets have their own voice, I try to tell a story with the things I shoot. And also show how those little details are always important.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been a smooth ride, I spent 4 years in Dallas by myself, away from my family and friends. But that allowed me to grow as a photographer and as a person. Experience the American culture in different parts of the country.

Please tell us about Hector Tellez Photography.
I am a freelancer photographer. I am mostly interested in street photography and photojournalism. I look to speak through my photographs, share a story or allow your eyes to create one.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Going on a family vacation. I was excited about my dad taking several pictures and recording big part of the trip. Now we have those pictures and videos and we watch them from time to time, a good way to document the past and remembering how far we’ve become.
