I'm a self taught advanced amateur photographer from the Chicago area (United States). I've had 14 photo published over the last two years and had one photo adorn the inside front flap of one of the two books I was published in. I've competed and won in a small local photography contest. 1st place, 2nd place or both since 2005. I gravitate towards photographing people (which explains my fascination with street photography), travel photography, architecture and lastly modeling to some extent.
