Jose Saldana Photography
Great Mills, MD, United States
Before 2010, he always used his point- and-shoot camera to capture nature and mountain shots, until he visited New Mexico state last year. There Jose finally bought a new entry-professional Canon camera in 2011. Several days later, on a trek to Cerro de Guadalupe, northwest of Santa Fe with his new camera, Jose shot a strange cloud atop Cerro’s base. Sending the image to The Santa Fe Mexican newspaper, three weeks later it was published in the newspaper’s travel section! This convinced Jose that he has a great eye to frame landscape and mountain photographs based on his experiences.
In Jose’s free time, he enjoys making freelance films and has won a few awards for his short movies. He has operated a film camcorder in Israel, Jordan, Guilin in Southern Central China, Hong Kong, and Macau for Deafnation. Jose is proud to have won a few film festival awards for a short documentary he created, “The Making Of Agamemnon” from Gallaudet University Theater Department, and few fictional films. The Outside Magazine Adventure Film School selected him to film the Teva Mountain Games in 2009 with our selected hearing students and one of his short films is still running online on Outside Magazine website. In-between travels, Jose has taught at PSD, the Delaware School for the Deaf and Rocky Mountain Deaf School as teacher aide.
Right now, his current focus is photographing adventures, mountains, nature, and landscapes in the world with outdoor adventurers, people, and political issues. Please be sure to visit Jose’s websites to see more of his photos and films. He just returned to USA from Nepal after one last year.
