How did you get started with photography

I was always surrounded by photography equipment since my grand father was one before I was born. It wasn't until I turned 22 that I finally started looking for a creative output and have been doing it ever since.

What do you love about your job?

I love capturing emotions and giving people satisfaction with the work I provide. I always take every job personal since my main goal is to deliver something that me and the clients will love to share with the world.

What are some of your favorite places in Chicago to take photographs?

I love downtown Chicago especially around the reflective buildings since they provide an amazing bounce of light I like taking advantage of it.
