Interests
Chris Reistroffer came to my school a couple days ago. He is a famous Sioux Falls, South Dakota Photographer that has been all over the world.

See my last Journal fryerock.deviantart.com/journa…

He was one of the coolest people i have met, my friend even said that he looked like a boy version of myself. I had to laugh because we were similar: excited about photography and geeking out. And when he mentioned the Ninja Turtles...
"I'm still going to go home tonight and play xBox and drink chocolate milk."


He's also a Canon man, and I'm Canon too. :D
"Who's Canon?"
*Raise my hand along with 2 other people*
"Now who's Nikon?"
*most of the class raises hand*
"Ah the darkside.  Just kidding"


After the class dispersed I gathered up the courage to ask him questions that i had ready.
during this time he played Skrillex and he said something inspiring, and I swear the world went in slow mo.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In your bio you said you couldn't draw and photography was your art form: did you have any obstacles because of this? (I can't draw myself)


Are you a freelance photographer? If so what is it like?
YES

How do you find clients?


What school did you go to and what did you study?
***He actually went to pre-law school. One time when he making a presentation he used his own photos instead of stock photos. His teacher thought that he was studying the wrong thing, and set him up with an internship with a newspaper photographer.
He said that the best thing to do is practice and watch other photographers. Hopefully I could shadow him next year!!

Where did you go after school?
***A newspaper company told him no. From then on he decided to do freelance.

What is your favorite kind of thing to shoot?
***Concerts because he loves the concert vibe. He said to always stay professional even when your client is famous. That is something that I need to work on. lol ^_^; He then told me that he took pictures of Family Force 5 (one of my favorite bands). The first one of Soul Glow Activator is when he started loving to take pictures of concerts. www.reistrofferdesign.com/ente…
He told me about Skrillex and how he is a cool guy and how to learn the rules before breaking them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you can see I didn't have time to ask him all of my questions. Frankly, I could of stood there for hours talking to him.

After this whole experience I now know what I want to do with my life.
I was looking at my future self. :D

step one: get a better camera
step two: get inspired
step three: never give up

"I'm not a photographer. I'm an artist." the phrase that i lived by before and now after i met him.
"No matter what your clients want always put a little bit of you in it."

CHECK HIM OUT~! (and enjoy the Daft Punk music)
