camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III; Canon EOS 5D; Mamiya RZ67

Luke Davis is a commercial and editorial photographer based in Chicago. He got his start shooting portraits of Buenos Aires, Argentina's tattoo artists, street vendors and cab drivers for Time Out Magazine. Since then, he has photographed for numerous brands and nonprofits worldwide, including recent work for VH1's Black Ink Crew Chicago. He constantly finds himself enamored with life's quirky, fleeting moments, whether they play out in the studio, the bird sanctuary near his apartment, or an abandoned and beautiful ballroom somewhere in South America. When he's not shooting, you might find him whizzing about the city on his bike, drinking as much iced coffee as possible, or commenting to someone nearby that "the light is beautiful right now." His latest project, Dragged Up, takes an unadultered, behind-the-scenes look at Chicago's burgeoning drag scene.

How did you get started with photography

I was always surrounded by photography equipment since my grand father was one before I was born. It wasn't until I turned 22 that I finally started looking for a creative output and have been doing it ever since.

What do you love about your job?

I love capturing emotions and giving people satisfaction with the work I provide. I always take every job personal since my main goal is to deliver something that me and the clients will love to share with the world.

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

I love downtown Chicago especially around the reflective buildings since they provide an amazing bounce of light I like taking advantage of it.
