Hello, My name is Armando , but most people call me Mando. I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. Currently, I'm a freelance photographer based out of Chicago, Ill.
I'm a recent graduate of Western Kentucky University.

I have also been published on The New York Times Lens Blog, CNN, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Sports Illustrated, the Associated Press and numerous publications throughout the country.
