InMexico: Did you study photography or are you self-taught?

Julieta Amezcua: I would say it is a combination of both! Since I was little I was always taking photos. I used to bring my mom’s camera everywhere and for 10 years all my presents were camera related. I had all kinds of cameras, from film to digital cameras, disposables, instant and even water proof! Later on I saw this could be more than a hobby and began getting photography books and enrolling in online courses.
