camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III

I love to create! I have been taking photos for about 8 years now, started taking it more seriously about 4 years ago. I have traveled across the country in cars older than I am with one goal in mind - To capture beautiful, real, genuine moments of people and the world they are living in. There is no better way to train or practice photography than driving 5000+ miles and seeing nearly every sunrise and sunset over a 3-week period. I have lately been shooting live concerts and events, in addition to working on studio work with some of these artists.

camera Nikon D750, Nikon D3200

Antwon McMullen is a self-taught Pro Photographer with a few years of experience making professional photographs. Around 5 years ago, he began making everyday stock images and selling them on microstock websites (i.e., Adobe Stock, Shutterstock and Pond5) for extra income. This helped him to learn his DSLR camera and develop an eye for what makes an image interesting. He enjoys photographing everything from the seemingly mundane to exciting experiences like children playing or even political protests. Life is a beautiful experience and he wants to capture as much of it as he can.

My passion for photography has been there since I was a young girl. My mother said I’ve always been interested in seeing how pictures were made- this was back in the days when there were only film cameras around.

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.
