About Me

Passion for photography and visual arts. Content Creator.

Juan Oropeza

“Juan began to be creative since he was a child, his love for the music started at the age of 5, taking music lessons in his childhood city Valencia, Venezuela, and watching his grandmother participate in the Arts, through painting.”

His father, is an Architect and Musician, from where the music and passion for design became an everyday topic in his life.

At the age of 10, Juan started to develop interest in photography using a Kodak 110 camera, and that’s how his journey began!

In his early 20’s, he started developing his passion for Web design and E-commerce, hundreds of websites have been part of his portfolio and have made him a successful entrepreneur, content creation was a need that made him improve his photography and video skills.

In 2002, his new and very particular website (unique in its style) Taspillao.com, became one of the most noticed and visited nightlife photography websites in Venezuela, combining his love for design, photography, media, and music, Juan made “Party” his lifestyle, and for several years, every day and night with his camera, people started to love the sarcastic and irreverent style of his pictures, capturing the essence of the Venezuelan wild nights. His passion and work drove him to cover concerts of some of the greatest bands in the world, including Guns n’ Roses, Aerosmith and many more, being featured in local press and TV.

Part of Juan’s work has been to produce content, where he is at his most creative, making Videos, Photoshoots and product photography for his clients. Soon after, he began to be the “outsourcing guy” of many marketing and advertising firms, in Venezuela and other latitudes.

In 2011, Juan moved to the US, where he began to improve his creative abilities, studying, learning and mastering the art of photography, video, drone piloting and using new tools and creating its own trend,expanding his unique point of view, in 3 main categories: street, travel and, Architectural Photography.

In 2013, he started creating amazing photos and videos for the real estate market, widely used by major realtors and brokers in all South Florida and nationwide, shooting over 2,500 homes, which currently is his everyday job in his company 360listers, founded in 2016, along with his design and web development company, The Branding Store, in which he creates content focused in product photography.
