Name or know as: Chico
City Based - D.C.
What got you into photography?
My grandmother is a photographer, as a kid I would always see her with her camera. I bought my first camera in 2014 I got a lot of friends who do art, fashion, and graphic design and they need photos so I bought a camera.
What equipment do you prefer?
I only shoot canon, seeing how that was the first camera I bought I stuck with the brand. But I wouldn’t mind trying out some other camera brands.
What do you prefer to work with brands, people, landscape, etc?
Portrait photography is my style, so I prefer to work with people/ brands. Landscapers is dope though, I don’t do enough traveling to take any landscape photos.
If you could do a photoshoot with any brand/person in the world who would you choose and what brand use?
Im kind into fitness but I’m really into the street shit if I could work with any brand it would be Nike, Adidas, Backwoods or supreme, if I could do a photoshoot with any person I would say either Kanye or Jay Z.
If you have worked with brands which ones?
I’ve never worked with the brand directly, I have had friends who have collaborated with certain brands and I’ve taken photos which they’ve used on their social media ( staple pigeon and Backwoods)
What drives you to be great at your craft?
My friends who are heavily involved with their art if it weren’t for them needing pictures of their art and fashion designs I probably never would’ve picked up the camera.
Who are some people you get inspired by?
What advice would you give to a new person in the game?
There will be times where you think you don’t know what you’re doing, when the “other guy” is killing the game and you think your style isn’t cool enough, but fuck that stick to what you know and what makes you happy. There’s beauty in everything just not everybody sees it.
