Hi everyone. A couple of months ago @showtime asked me to come to #Chicago to photograph the actors of The Chi @shothechi. Yesterday, the first promo images dropped. This was the most rewarding project in my career so far and I loved every moment of it. I'm super thankful to everyone who made this opportunity a reality. 2020, let's keep the blessings moving forward.

I love my job. I get to spend time with some of the most amazing, courageous, inspiring people in the world, and then make a portrait of them. That’s me with @indyamoore, I couldn’t begin to describe how much love and light they have for life. Thank you for spending time with me 🙏🏾 (and yes, we killed the shoot 😁)
