My name is Joe Chavez. I've just graduated from Roosevelt High School and I've decided to take a gap year. Upon turning 18 years old, so many new opportunities and interests arose for myself, and I felt that I needed more time to explore them before I go to college. Photography has been a hobby of mine for about 2 years now, and I've decided to pursue that a little more. That being said, a beautiful journey through Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Australia, and New Zealand present me with a great opportunity to build a portfolio.
