'Mr. José Luis Tejero was the recipient of an internship at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice (Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York) for the months of December 2014, January and February 2015. Peggy Guggenheim Collection internships give students and recent college graduates, at the beginning of their careers, practical experience in the daily administration of a small private museum and considerable responsibility is required of them. José Luis is highly intelligent, responsible, and motivated. He is a young man with an outstanding work ethic which enabled us to trust him and to rely on him for different tasks related to the daily functioning of the museum and also for tasks that demanded academic and educative skills. He is a remarkable person with great future prospects. I have no reservation in recommending him'
Testimonio 3‘We met Jose Luis Tejero on the occasion of the project layout and editing of the historical book "Memories of Alomartes" commissioned by one of our clients. We were pleasantly surprised, not only by his technical skills but also by his ability to capture the spirit of the age. He was able to respond perfectly to our instructions and scrupulously complied with the deadlines set. The result was a great job. Both we and the client were very satisfied with the final product. We look forward to working with him on future projects.’

Testimonio 1‘For the final design of the project guides INTEGRA-ME produced for the Andalusian Government, we needed images that helped communicate our idea of integration between public transport and urban development. We relied on the services of Jose Luis and I can say that he fully met our expectations in a professional manner. His contribution vastly improved the final publication of our investigations. I would have no hesitation in recommending José Luis services.’
