El Paso is full of talent and emerging photographers. In this case it happens to be Antonio Villaseñor. He is a quiet guy who happens to be full of talent, whether it is writing or taking pictures. I asked him to do this interview and I also asked him to take pictures that day to show case his talent! Before the photoshoot, I asked him a few questions.
I began by asking Antonio when he had began to get interested in photography and he answered, "I have always been interested. I took a photography class and used it as an excuse to get a camera. Taking pictures requires skills." He also added that photography would add to his journalism skills because they go hand in hand.
Then, I asked him who was his favorite photographer, which he was quick to say "Robert Maplethorpe!I proceeded to ask him what his favorite location was and he said that it was Dripping Springs in New Mexico and he loves murals as well. Antonio was also keen to mention that the best pictures he has taken happen to be spontaneous. He prides himself in a picture he has taken of the Houston rain and says he has even sold a copy of it. He also tries to edit pictures the least amount possible and hopes people will take his work well. The photos are his art and not a way to make money.
Antonio is a truly humble photographer and I love the pictures he took of me. I hope people can contact him and you can find his work on his Instagram and Facebook, which are under AntoniovPhotography!!
