Every success story is a tale of constant adaption, revision, and change. We always keep this in mind as we pursue our mission to bring the Illinois creative community together.

Why We're Great >

After 8 years of working in a corporate setting I began taking backpacking trips to push the boundaries of my comfort zone and in the process, discovered the art of photography and videography.  During this journey, I started Chi.Shooters through my passion for collaborating and bringing the community together locally.

I'm a photographer and graphic designer. Being on the Chi Shooters team since day 1 almost 2 years ago has been a wild ride. Getting to put together these one of a kind events that unites our unique community has been so rewarding and I can't wait to see where we go from here.

I am who I am today, with all my faults. Though I have come to love myself fully for who I was, who I am, and who I hope to become.

Hi, I'm Amod. As a creator, I follow a few simple rules. Ask tough questions to get the answers you need, not the ones you want to hear. Work with people you trust. Craft content that delivers results. Tell stories that matter. Always do anything for the shot.
