I grew up in a very creative environment – surrounded by my mother’s hair salon, my sister’s fashion designs and paintings, and cousins and friends who were into graffiti and urban culture. This inspired me to draw inspiration from all those influences – to collaborate and keep learning and ultimately led me to this point of being a creative photographer.

09 Jun 2017, Steve Alex – Vital Records : ” JC Verona produced an official music video for us with a great deal of creativity and professionalism. His style is fresh and he’s a pleasure to work with. JC made use of vivid colors in such a way that the screen came to life! His editing decisions were perfect; everything from the timing of the edits to the choice of cuts he made. But more than just a talented director, he is a true professional. His communication and attentiveness made the project run smooth. Though I know the reason it seemed so smooth is that he handled all the details. A talented professional. Highly recommended!”

Creative & open mind – I highly recomment him!”
