Untitled photo

My name is Louis Tinsley and I am a DC-based commercial and editorial portrait  photographer.

I graduated from NSU with a Bachelors in Journalism, but I quickly realized that I was supposed to be behind the camera. However, the draw storytelling never left me. 

I began freelancing as a photo assistant all around the country, and eventually started working as a grip/electric on commercials and films. I wore a lot of hats in both the stills and motion world, but I never stopped shooting.

Now I just like to tell stories.

I'm currently an APA-DC board member.
