Welcome + Quick Background

Hi there!

Welcome to my website and thank you for the visit! This is my first website so I apologize if it isn't perfect. If you haven't already please feel free to check out my gallery and enjoy some of my photos, it would be greatly appreciated! 

Now lets get down to brass tax... My name is Shawn Chesek. I am a 21 year old college student from Middletown, New Jersey with a passion for photography. At the age of 5 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and as much as it sucks I embrace it and flaunt it.

I realized that I was interested in photography during a trip to Washington DC during summer 2014. Surrounded by the beautiful architecture and sights, I snapped away on my iPhone 4s to get the best shot I could. Even though it was just on my iPhone, I enjoyed the pictures I took as well as the process of taking them. Shortly thereafter a thought jumped in my head-"I could probably take some cool pictures with an actual camera!" and I was set on taking the best photos I could. After months of research I was lucky enough to receive my first DSLR camera at the end of 2014, a Nikon D5300 bundled with 18-55mm and 55-300mm kit lenses. I've been using the same gear since then with some smaller additions along the way.

Thank you and enjoy!
