I had the opportunity of meeting Kyle, ironically, through Tinder. I thought I would potentially be having a date, but instead found a pretty amazing friend and photographer. While I have only known him since Daishocon of 2018, I am super excited to have him be one of my photographer interviews!
At this point in the article, he doesn't charge for his photos, which I think is a crying shame. Hopefully this and enough goading and we can convince him to make money for better equipment, and thus, bring even better photos.
You can find his work on Instagram, @infinite_lemon_arts
