Armando Gonzalez

Photography – Houston, TX

Even though his family and friends told him to pursue a computer career which is traditionally more steady and has a high earning potential, Armando Gonzales decided to follow his dream of becoming a professional photographer. Gonzalez co-founded Stop Focus Studios in 2012, and in less than a year has made a name for himself among aspiring models. His founding partner left the company to start a baking company. “I always felt the need on doing what I really love to do and that’s photography,” Gonzalez said. While working and going to school at Devry University for a bachelors in multimedia design, Gonzalez continued to pursue photography in his free time. To his surprise, after just a few photo sessions with the help of his friends, his work started to get noticed by a multitude of people “A year ago, I used to work for a gas station, and they always checked out my photographs,” said Gonzalez, “they always asked if I was ever going to pursue my dream and I told them yes.” The inspiration behind Gonzalez’s photography is Nebraska photographer, Jake Olson.
