Since his decision to pursue fine art, Jose Gomez has been featured in art shows, galleries, and the Museum of fine art in St. Petersburg.
He was a Juror's Choice winner at Files and Film in St. Petersburg, an invited artist to the United Photographic Artists Showcase, an invited artist to showcase at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and the first Tampa Bay photographic artist to showcase his work on the runway of Haute Accessories Week.
Constantly pushing his subjects for something the viewer can relate to and tangibly feel, JGomez continues to build on his experience and talent as a fashion photographer, bringing those skills into the world of art.
His specialty is in the human form and emotions in light and shadow. His works include Summoning Angels and Taking Flight, which have been well-received by critics at recent Gallery shows in Florida.
One can see influences from Ruth Bernhard, Howard Schatz, Edward Weston, and Richard Avedon in his artwork. See Jose Gomez’s newest represented work here
