Broadly describing his work as documentarian, Louis is a working photographer using both traditional film and modern digital cameras.
He started his artistic journey photography as a young child in Benson MN where his parents encouraged him in his artistic endeavors. After taking all the art classes in high school and starting at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) as a film major, he would say that his photographic journey started with a love an appreciation for the cinematography of film, as well as just taking random candids of his friends at college, taking a couple classes in the photojournalism department solidifying a solid documentary background.
His first paid work was that of shooting the first 1711 Music Festival in May of 2015, closely followed up by being the Homecoming Photographer at MSUM for the 2015/2016 school year where he continued to develop his eye as a candid documentarian of the world around him.
Since then he has expanded into weddings and portraiture via some senior pictures, headshots, as well as behind-the-scenes shots for a short film, and various celebrations of identity and culture.
Louis currently resides in St Paul, Minnesota.
