Owner/ Lead Photographer:

Francisco Cortés was born on the border between the states of Oaxaca and Veracruz, in the southern region of Mexico.  After migrating to Texas at an early age, Francisco called the Southside of San Antonio his home, until leaving to Austin, TX to major in Chicano Studies and, after his first photography course, journalism.  Through film photography and dark-room printing, Cortés used those fundamental studies and the contexts of his many environments, to shape the manner in which Cortés looks through the lens.

With 14 years of experience, Efe Photography carries a strong background in photo-journalism and a wide range of specialties (documentary, portrait, event, wedding, commercial, street, fine art); each specialty revolving around true documentation – traditional & artistic.
