Do you hate your Driver’s License photo? Not because it’s unflattering but because it doesn’t properly tell the story of who YOU are? Do you piss your family and friends off when doing photos of them because you take forever getting the staging, camera angle, and focal length just right? Do you love games and long to fold your knack for visual storytelling into the player’s experience?
Well, do we have an awesome gig for you!
