Joseph Ramirez, chicago Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Im the smile behind the lens and im the photographer that makes you proud to have your picture taken. Protraits are not about who takes your picture, but rather how the person feels in it. I have grown up behind the camera. My first time with photography would have to be when i was a young boy and took a night class at the local comunity college. Just seeing that picture apear was magic to me. Ever since I love to make that magic. I love shooting family and kids. kids smiles are a true smile and they mean it. My goal with my photography is for you to feel proud of what you see. Be proud at who you are and what you have become.
