Meet Dennis Sosa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dennis Sosa.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I first got my hands on a camera around the age of 13 and it’s been my forte ever since. I started off with a point and shoot film camera and eventually graduated to a DSLR. I didn’t really know what I was doing, to be honest. I just started taking pictures and I really didn’t think much of the images I produced. It wasn’t until my family and friends began encouraging me to keep shooting because I had a keen eye for capturing unique moments.

Please tell us about your art.
When people ask me what I enjoy shooting, in particular, I never have a specific answer. My work is very broad because I can comfortably shoot portraits but also shoot interiors. I would say that my strongest work is produced when I work with people. I have come across a lot of people saying they hate taking photos and don’t come off great in photos. It’s the look of satisfaction on their faces after they see their photos that really makes it worthwhile. I would go as far as saying that it’s a therapeutic session. I had two close friends approach me about taking their headshots because they needed them for work. From the get-go they were nervous but at the end of our session, their nerves and self-doubt were gone. At the end of the day, I just want my art to evoke a deep emotion in everyone. Whether it be anger, happiness, or sadness………I just want people to feel something when they see my images.

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
I would say that the biggest challenge is that it’s such a saturated industry. Especially with social media and phone cameras becoming so sophisticated, you have a lot of people calling themselves photographers/artists. You really have to work hard to make yourself stand out and be unique.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
You can see my work on my website, www.DHZphotography.com, and also follow me on Instagram @DHZ_photography.
