He started an Instagram account to share some beautiful photos he was taking of Chicago, but it has taken off like crazy. In just 10 weeks the account has gained 31,500 followers, a photo of his has been shared in Times Square and he is getting calls from professionals offering him jobs before he has even finished school.
