Moments Moments | The Artistree
BY CHAD KAMENSHINE

A few months ago, I was asked this simple question: "Would you want to shoot their portrait?"

Looking back, this is the moment when all the dominoes started to fall. I've always had something to say, but I felt as if the message wasn't getting through. Shooting portraits has finally given me the platform to vocalize my vision, and since then it's been pretty insane. I've been fortunate enough to collaborate and share experiences with some of the most amazing people (a lot of them below). The best part? I've made lifelong friends, all because I just took someone’s photograph.
