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 credit Instagram with discovering my love of photography and launching my freelance career and entrepreneurship.

In the simplest words I'm just a simple guy who loves to take pictures and anything that revolves around the art of photography. I feel fortunate working with Fortune 500 Companies and also be able to spend time on personal projects, travel and collaborating with people for a greater causes. I'm a sucker for meeting old and new friends over coffee to discuss personal creative goals and career opportunities.


Adorama 'Through The Lens' is a web format presented by ADORAMA NYC. TTL is a look at the evolving aesthetic of photography as seen through this generation's creator class. Tune in every Wednesday for a new creator. EPISODE TWO: Jose Tutiven (Instagram: @tutes) offers visual insight of life and culture in the Big Apple.

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.
