I am very critical of myself and my work. A perfectionist to the highest degree.
Tulio, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I would love to see one of my Photographs in a frame hanging in a gallery. I started as a Photographer because of a trade for an old fridge for a low-end Nikon.
Who is your inspiration in life Tulio? How do you keep inspired?
I am inspired when realising my photos will be cherished for a long time after I'm gone. Who doesn't have an old photo of grandma in her wedding dress?
We all make mistakes Tulio; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
During one of my classes, I was taking a fellow student showed me a picture he took of a photo and I just smirked and looked away. I noticed his whole demeanour changed. I felt like I hurt his feelings and made him feel insecure about his photography skills. If he is reading this, I'm sorry my mind was somewhere else. I should have shown more respect for your work.
Tulio, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I will skip sleep if need be to give them all the same quality experience. I need 5-star ratings, 4 star is not acceptable.
Please tell us Tulio, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
When shooting at Weddings, I will allow others to have the couple for their needs during the day because my time begins just before sunset which is prime time for Photographers.
Tulio, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I create drawings, renderings, photos of similar things to my idea. Once that person sees your vision, and you raise the excitement of the finished product/result in its a breeze.
Tulio, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Walking into a home weeks after a shoot and noticing my photos in frames all over the home to include the restroom.
Tulio, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I love throwing in the one Photoshopped photo with the bride or quincenera walking along a beautiful ocean scene or on top of a mountain overlooking fields of green.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Don't be afraid to take that shot! Keep shooting!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to represent some Photographer's equipment brand. What an honor to have the brands that make equipment for pros want you to shoot their products.
