José Luis Venegas
Born in 1944 in Mexico
José Luis Venegas began his career in the United States and returned to Tijuana after his four children were born. He is well known for his photographs of weddings, baptisms, first communions, and Quinceañera celebrations. He made a name for himself in Tijuana by advertising his work as “fine photography for families with good taste.” A pioneer in the use of color, he continues to learn new techniques with the digital revolution. In 2012, the Asociación de Fotógrafos Profesionales de Baja California, of which he is chairman, honored him for a career of more than forty years. He continues to divide his time between the two Californias. In 2015, he exhibited with his daughter Yvonne at the Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York.
