Hello, My name is Armando Sanchez, but most people call me Mando. I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. Currently, I'm a freelance photographer based out of Chicago, Ill. 


I'm a recent graduate of Western Kentucky University. During my time as a student, I interned as a staff photographer at The Chicago Tribune, The Tennessean, The State Journal-Register, and The Saginaw News. I have also been published on The New York Times Lens BlogCNN, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Sports Illustrated, the Associated Press and numerous publications throughout the country.


In 2012, I was awarded third place in the Hearst Journalism Championship and given the honor of Best Single Photograph in the Hearst Journalism Competition. In 2011, I was named Kentucky Student Photographer of the year by the Kentucky News Photographers Association.


Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
