I’m Kenneth Soto, and I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I bring a wealth of cultural experience and a unique perspective to the world of visual storytelling. As an Army Veteran, I was able to travel the world and experience diverse cultures while in service. After relocating to Texas in 2016, I have spent the last six years cultivating my passion for photography, and later filmmaking. I have drawn inspiration from my rich heritage and the vibrant communities that surround me in the City of San Antonio.
My educational background includes a specialization in Digital Photography, which I studied at the Art Institute of San Antonio from 2016-2017, before continuing my education at the Art Institute of Tampa in 2018.
Currently, I am also honing my skills in the art of visual storytelling at the San Francisco Film School, pursuing a degree in Digital Cinematography. As the owner of Ginori Photography & Film, I have specialized in event photography and filmmaking. My primary focus lies in capturing the Quinceañera, and Wedding events. As an emerging filmmaker, I have directed and produced two projects that showcase my evolving skillset. My first project, “The Man of the Night,” is a visually captivating montage with spoken word filmed in Downtown San Antonio. My second project, a thought-provoking 3-minute short narrative film, delves into the issue of social media addiction, highlighting my storytelling ability to address contemporary social issues through my work.

My approach to visual storytelling is rooted in the fusion of drama, dynamism, and authenticity. By embracing a close and personal perspective, I aim to immerse audiences in the emotional core of each story, fostering a deep connection to the characters and the world they inhabit. This intimate style is the driving force behind my work, allowing me to create compelling narratives that resonate with viewers.
Drawing from my background and experiences, I bring a unique sensibility to my storytelling, inspired by my heritage and my worldview. This multicultural lens enables me to explore themes of identity, connection, and the human experience in a way that is both profound and meaningful.
As a passionate advocate for authentic, real-world narratives, my creative philosophy centers on presenting topics that are not only relevant but also deeply rooted in reality or inspired by true events. By addressing contemporary social issues and fostering a sense of relatability, I strive to engage audiences on a personal level, sparking reflection and dialogue.
