camera Sony a7iii

Liam Goss has been taking photos for the past three years. Originally located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and later on moving to Chicago, Illinois, he has been capturing the stories of the under represented and under acknowledged, making them feel just as important as the celebrities in the headlines. He has gone on over 500 total shoots, for every day people, large events, highly funded companies like Nike, Carhartt, and several restaurants in Albuquerque and Chicago. One of the nicest, hardest working photographers in the area, Liam Goss has a unique editing style that separates him from the less hard working photographers out there. All his free time is spent shooting with people for free who can't afford his rates as well as constantly editing new photos and posting them for the community to see.

How did you get started with photography

I started as a photographer as a child due to my great grandmother having a massive collection of cameras she purchased at yard sales. I was fascinated with being able to freeze moments in time. I became a professional paid photographer and cinematographer in the early 2000's. I have shot everything from family portraits, commercial and residential real estate, behind the scenes in Hollywood film, fashion, lifestyle, editorial, and street.

What do you love about your job?

I love putting my signature on everything I shoot. I love the smile on each and every clients face when they see the final product. I love to work autonomously and focus on details.

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

In Los Angeles, downtown was without a doubt my favorite place to shoot. In Chicago, I love to shoot downtown as well.
