We had the good fortune of connecting with Jafet Soto and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jafet, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Staying Consistent and motivated. When I felt discouraged and disconnected from the world. I would just look back to what got me here an it would remind me of my “ why “

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m most proud of how much I’ve grown over the past year with photography and as human. How I got to where I am today professionally was being consistent and having an open mind on things. I Also found it important to learn from the mistake of my self an others. I wouldn’t say it was easy or hard but it was definitely a challenge. It help learn about my weaknesses and strengths in different obstacles in life. The lesson I learned along the way was never to wait for anyone. If you want it go for it an make it happen an the rest will fall into place in due time. What I would like the world to know about me and the brand “ influence photography “ is that you can make dreams come true if you put your heart in it. It’s going to be challenging but it’ll be worth it.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We can start out by trying one of the best pizzas in downtown houston. “ Franks Pizza “ And from there walk the city of houston and show them the culture we have here.
