Jose "Tutes" Tutiven


Born in Ecuador and raised in New York City, I'm a photographer and videographer with a knack for capturing authentic moments and showcasing personal, intimate details through my portraiture and lifestyle work. I’ve also worked on creating Brand and Lifestyle Strategic projects for prestige organizations, companies and personas.

I'm an enthusiast and highly-engaged creative who is committed to making a difference and providing value to every assignments and projects that are heavily community based.

I feel fortunate working with Fortune 500 Companies and also being able to spend time on personal projects, travel and collaborating with people for greater causes. I'm a sucker for meeting old and new friends over coffee to discuss personal creative goals and professional opportunities.


I wanted to share my story on how the loss of my mother created a series of emotional and financial instability in my life. This affected me when building relationships with friends, family and loved ones.
