A: I started to discover my passion for photography when I saw how my work can be inspiring to so many people. Hearing people tell me they love my work and that I inspire them to go out and shoot film with their friends is probably the best feeling.
A: My name is Edsel, and I’m an 18-year-old film photographer based in Chicago. I'm a senior in high school right now and aiming towards doing photography as a full-time career. I started doing photography with just a couple of friends for the past 2 years and I've been doing it nonstop ever since.
2. Q: WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
A: Some advice I would give to someone wanting to become a photographer is just doing it. Go out explore and try some new things. Photography should be fun and not about competing about who's getting the better pictures. Just never give up and trust the process, promise you it'll be worth it.
