My name is Erick Camacho, and I am a 26-year-old recent college graduate living in Southern California. I currently work and have worked as a photographer at Walt Disney Parks & Resorts in Anaheim, California since September 2018.
In recent years, my passion for photography and using the medium to tell a story — has grown, and I might argue, overtaken the priority spot which used to be inhabited by writing in a variety of formats.
Today, I find myself trying to do what I can to immerse myself into photography and attempt to make it a career. Opportunities are limited because of my familial circumstances, but efforts are made, be it with the attendance and aid provided at volunteer events, support for project developments, and networking with others at photography events held by photo organizations. Submissions in contests is another such example of my longing for professional involvement with the photography community.
