The Full Story
My name is Hunter but a lot of people call me Apollo, I am a freelance photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. I've been doing photography for over 5 years and like to call my style "exotic color photography" giving a new spin to fashion, portrait and boudoir more bright and vibrant colors than ever before.
I was born and raised in Southern California and do what I can to give back to my community. I host photo meetups in LA that are free to all creators of any kind.
Why the name Apollo/Apolloawakens? Ever since I was 15 I competed in robotics competitions and my team was sponsored by NASA (went to world championships 5 years in a row), When I graduated from high school I went straight into engineering and did it for 9 years. While being in engineering I found my love for photography and did it whenever I had my free time. You know the saying "the sky is you limit" well instead of the sky being your limit I like to think about space and how there is no limits and that how I feel about photography. So I came up with the name to bring my arts side and engineering side together.
I am very hands-on, self-motivated, and technically sophisticated professional photographer with a solid history of effectively photographing and maintaining production equipment. Extensive knowledge and success in Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop, with proven success in tackling complex problems and providing innovative solutions. Thrives in rapidly-paced workplaces with ability to cope with changing priorities.
