How did you get started with photography

I bought my first camera on what was then the highest recorded air pollution day in the history of Beijing. It clicked to me that some things that are better seen than told.

What do you love about your job?

I love taking great pictures and making my clients happy.

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

In Chicago I'd have to say Fulton Market. In some ways it's super contemporary and slick and in others it feels industrial and rough, like a stanza out of Carl Sandburg's 100 year old poem, "Chicago." In what other place can you have the Google Office next to a sausage factory, next to some dude selling jerk chicken out of the trunk of his sedan to the workers at the post office across the street?
