Jose Gaytan has a knack for uncovering different versions of reality, from painting abstract landscapes with his lens to capturing unexpected moments in portraits. Known as the "go-to" for camera equipment, he moves easily between film and digital and stays on top of the latest industry trends. He also does one-on-one photography instruction and consulting. He was formerly a faculty member at the International Center of Photography. If he's not behind the camera, he's playing one of his many acoustic guitars or walking his dogs, Lola and Rudy.
