"Where do I even start??!? It seems like every picture Jave uploads, I Fave. I can't help it... whether it's the epic (and I mean, E-P-I-C) light or a masterful composition, the photo is always worth studying and admiring in lightbox. The next best part is the commentary. Jave always has some crazy fun story to share - be it out with fellow Boot Camp Photographers to something as mundane as following weather patterns (fog?).
Whatever it is, it always brings a smile to the face because you know how dedicated he is. It is absolutely inspiring. It drives you to take a better picture. On top of that, he's incredibly helpful and willing to share. I am truly grateful for talented photographers like Jave who have an eye for brilliant imagery.
Jave often signs off with the line "May the light be with you" - and I only find it fitting that we respond "and also with you!" Happy clicking!"

"His work is always breathtakingly amazing and beautiful. He really captures a sense of wonderment and natural power in the world around. Not to mention a very friendly person! He was one of the first people I was brave enough to ask some photography questions and he just was so kind with the information he provided. Definately be sure to add him!!!"

"I'd like to think that somehow I had a hand in Jave's rise from the ashes as he took flight and started producing killer images. I had the pleasure of being in a teacher/student situation with him in January 2009, but alas, it is all Jave. He is a true photographer at heart and embodies the spirit of all that is good about flickr and the photographic medium. And in less than a year, his talent and vision have impressed me to no end. Keep it up, Jave!"

"JaveFoto not only is a very talented photographer, he is also one of the nicest people on Flickr! He is so generous in sharing his knowledge - locations, comps, workshops...the list goes on. We finally managed to go out shooting together a little while ago, and what can I say? Jave's enthusiasm in infectious, and he's always making sure everyone has what they need on the photo shoot. While he's mostly concentrated on epic landscapes...he's a new dad now, and I know his portrait photography is going to be absolutely stellar!"

"What can I say about the man known as JaveFoto on flickr? Well, first or all, he really knows what he wants in a shot and isn't afraid to work hard to get it. Also, Jave will go out of his way to help other photographers and, with Jave, there are always other photographers. Haha. Seriously, I really appreciate the processing help I have gotten from him.
I really like his enthusiasm for getting the shot. He is one of the only photographers I know that looks like he is out storm-chasing when going for a bridge image or something. My kind of photog. He has captured some awesome images that like to go back and see, time and again.

"What I like about Jave is that he only shows us his best, and his best is cream of the crop -- images that will have you stare and study them for several minutes to further appreciate. Whether it be structures, landscapes or seascapes, his photographs never fall short of artistry and great technique. His stream is one of the few here on Flickr that I truly enjoy looking at, and I am always looking forward to his new posts which never leaves me disappointed.
Thanks for your support, Jave! I've never met you but you seem to be such a nice guy. :-)"

"Who would have thought, that a simple email about some filters back in 2009 would lead to this friendship with an amazing guy/photographer? I'll start out by saying that Javier is one my closest friends/contacts on flickr. I consider him a friend before a contact, and if you get a chance to meet Javier, you won't be disappointed. He's a really great guy, lots of fun, and has a great attitude as well.
Now as for Javier's photography...........amazing, phenomenal, and very inspirational. His work has gone to another level, beyond belief in a short amount of time. And is by far one of my favorite photographer's on flickr. If you haven't seen his work, I strongly recommend that you do, you will not be disappointed. If you get a chance to shoot with him, you will have tons of fun, you will learn a lot, and you will have countless stories to tell when you get back home.
Thanks for everything Jave, you are blowing up like crazy, and you will go far, keep up the great work, and I always looking forward to the next meet up, and next image.

"Jave's fantastic eye captured the interest and wonderful moment. He's not only an accomplished photographer but a kind, generous soul that always goes out of his way to compliment and support others in the Flickr community with his encouraging words and giving spirit.
It's been my pleasure to call this dear person a friend and i'm looking forward for his other great work :) Go Jave!!"

If you are just peeking in on Jave’s profile to see what he’s all about, I assure you, you will not be disappointed. He continuously amazes me with his quality work. His images are well thought out and executed. Just when I think he’s posted his best shot yet, he posts an even better one…true story! Not only is Jave extremely talented but he is also a very kind and willing to offer advice when needed (which in my case is very often). Thanks Jave for being so awesome. Hopefully you are following Jave’s work and can say you knew him back when :) Thanks for all the inspiration my friend."

If you have the photo bug and go on one shoot with Jav it will change
the way you think and feel about photography. He has a contagious
energy that is his defining characteristic. Jav relentlessly pursues
technical improvements of both his photography as well as those
His artistic eye leads him to his magnificent landscapes. A quiet
stroll through his photostream will inspire you to grab you camera and
explore your world. Jav is directly responsible for taking my images
from snapshots to well thought out captures. If you know Jav you know
he is as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. There
is no doubt he is just getting started and there is no stopping him.
Stay tuned in and you are sure to be amazed."

"Jave, what can I say but that through your photos and descriptions of how you took them, I have become a big fan. I love looking at landscape photos because i know the amount of time an effort it takes to pull them off and you do it every time, great work and a great guy, if I wore a hat..I'd tip it to you."

"Javier is a quick learner and his photos show it! Incredible landscapes and the multiple NDG filter effects he has in his photos are very eye-pleasing. Looking forward to more great photos from Javier!"

"Jave is one incredible photographer which is so sincere and genuine as a person and in his work. He continuously provides me with inspiration in his passion and there is never a photo that he displays that doesn't speak a language of elegance, integrity, and a compassion for flawless detail. I always look forward to see what he will upload next :) Every single photo he uploads is a hit and always eye-catching. I'm so glad that Flickr provided me with the opportunity to "meet" Jave. He really is an inspirations for me. Thank you Jave, for that and for being such a great Flickr friend with you amazing feedbacks towards my stream. I am truelly honored to be your contact and friend. Looking forward to see what what you will bring us all in the future with your breathtaking stream.

"I've pondered what I might write about the world famous photographer extraordinaire of Flickr, for a few days now. Should I mention what a great eye for composition he has? Or how his skills at subtle, yet effective, post processing have inspired me to buy a few books and actually try to learn a few techniques as well? Or should I mention that he is always willing to lend a helping hand whether it be with Photo Shop, Light Room or just giving you great tips on when and what to post to Flickr. All these attributes would be a fitting testimonial to such a great and humble person. But, what I decided, I would write about this person, who I am proud to call my friend, is that he is an honestly genuine human being. He is kind and thoughtful and always a pleasure to be around. Whether it being shooting photos in some ridiculous spot we decided to venture into, or just sitting around shooting the $hit and talking photo. So, here's to many more photo outings and countless shots of great light. Stay well brother and may the beautiful light always shine upon your lens.

"JaveFoto is one of my most favorite contacts on Flickr! When I am on the Flickr site...about twenty times a day... I always check to see if Jave has anything new because he is extremely talented! Furthermore, Jave leaves great comments on his contacts photos as well.
Fave, love the photos of you and your siblings. I like the photo of you guys as children and your adult photo shows how extremely handsome you all are. Keep up you great photography, I look forward to seeing much, much more!"
