Ateneo Sta. Ines (Teni Sta. Ines) was born in January 1963, in Guimba, Nueva Ecija and currently lives in Manila.
Photography was his hobby since 2009, since then, he dedicates almost all his time to street photography.
During his “street walks”, he tries to be a story teller using images, telling the others what he used to see daily. Anonymous people are the main actors of his photos. People are always changing as well as moments and lighting .
His subjects are street, people, feelings, life... he is always looking for the MOMENT which he feels he has never captured and will be looking for it forever. He has no particular subject.
He likes low light conditions. He likes real People.
He has been featured in the Maybank website recently for being one of the 5 most inspiring photographers on street in Asia. One of the Top Ten winner in a national photo competition Ten Photos to Shake the World 2013, his entry has a street photography approach.
