How I Started

Photography has always been an interest of mine. Starting at a young age, I would always play around with the family camera. What started off as a couple random selfies and pictures quickly turned into an interest of mine. When I entered high school I decided sign up for my first photography class. Little did I know I absolutely fall in love with being behind the camera. Luckily for me, at the age of 16 my parents decided to gift me my first canon camera. From there, I would take pictures of my friends for fun and use them as an opportunity to perfect my craft. As I became more passionate about photography, I decided to make my own photo account on Instagram. Once I started getting booked for photoshoots, I left each session feeling more inspired to create. Quickly after that, I knew I wanted to turn my passion into a career. That is how ChieuPhotos got started.
