Name- Amber Marie Chavez
Age- 23 years old
Where are you from?- I am from Los Angeles, California.
Your equipment- I use a handful of cameras, depending on what I'm willing to carry, especially while traveling. I shoot with a Pentax Super, a Pentax 645, and a Canon Elan. When shooting with Polaroid, I use a Polaroid 450 land camera and a Polaroid 203 camera.
Influences and photographers you like- Growing up I was greatly influenced by my mother, she opened up a photography business when she was my age and worked out of her home. A lot of the equipment I use today has been handed down from her. Being a twin is a very strong force of motivation behind my work. One of my most solid pieces of work has been the Symbiotic Series, which is a collaboration with my twin sister Ashlie.
A little about you- I have difficulty describing myself. "About me questions" make me very anxious. I would like to travel more, I like the desert and I like animals, especially sheep.
