"Hi, my name is Julio Castillo Jr and go by July Castle in the photo industry. I was born in Lynwood, California but as a photographer I'm based in Las Vegas. I have been a photographer for 9 years and professionally for 4 years. I began my studies at the Art Institute of Las Vegas for Graphic Design but was swayed towards Photography as soon as I stepped in the photography studio.
My photography teacher told me to get all the cliches out of the way by taking photos non-stop, so I did. I began playing with natural (available) light taking photos of anything that might look remotely “artsy”. Just recently I decided to take the same non-stop approach to portraiture and I've had the luck of getting photography request from models from around Vegas."
