Meet East Hollywood Photographer: Hector Suarez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hector Suarez.

Hector, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have always tried to drive my passion into work. In my photography, it has been my love for art and creativity. In school, I felt that there was no need to compromise between commercial and creativity. A concept that is often forgotten in our brand/product-centered world. In the case of advertising, there is a need to have images with a strong conceptual foundation in order to stand out from all the noise, I’m confident that by driving my passions and skills into my images I can create something that is truly creative and in the end most memorable.

Has it been a smooth road?
I’d be lying if I said it’s been a smooth road. Sometimes it’s difficult to convince others to diverge from the path that many have used before. In the end, it’s important to stay true to your convictions and realize that even if you do otherwise it’s not a matter of “selling out” but adapting in a changing world.

Have you ever wanted to stop doing what you do and just start over?
There have been many times where all work has dried up. Sometimes it’s easier to think that your creative work can be a side job or a hobby. But I’ve personally have learned that you have to throw everything you have in keeping you. passions alive. The important thing is not to let these moments overcome you. Though there are times when one might have to put their passions aside in order to pay your bills (I definitely have). You have to remember not to be complacent and keep trying to succeed. In the end, I’d rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable.

What advice do you wish to give to those thinking about pursuing a path similar to yours?
As an artist, I feel we are all somewhat stubborn. We often don’t like our artworks or methods to be questioned or changed, Some might be resistant to advise and refuse to branch out from a particular style, technique, etc. These mannerism are common because our artwork is like our children and what parent will be OK with criticisms of their parenting. It is very important to accept advice and seek help from time to time. This removes the filter through which we view our work. It often changes not only our artwork but ourselves for the better.

Is there something you are particularly excited about or working towards?
I’m very excited to come up with new pieces and branch out from any particular style that I might have. The last thing that I would want is to be typecast into a single role since styles often go out of fashion. On that note, it’s important to keep up with the times. Our world changes in the blink of an eye and we must learn to adapt to changing circumstances. Personally, it would be great to one day walk around a museum and view my work (though I might be asking for too much).
