About Beking . . .
Beking's name bears a personal challenge that he embraces every day. Rooted in photography and beginning to flourish in film, he understands the power of visual storytelling, and how a single image can say so much more than 1,000 words.
Who Beking is behind the lens is reflected in his work – "every shot is not so much a portrait as it is a mirror, helping me to reveal my true self." As someone that descends from three generations of artistry, he feels it’s the combination of his American, Haitian and Cuban heritage that allows me to capture many different angles and perspectives, across many different and unique genres.
"From photography to film, and documentary to fashion, fitness and beyond, the past six years have taught me that my passion for content creation knows no bounds. I thrive off of the diversity in what I do, and believe that everyone and everything is beautiful when presented in the right light. So I seek out the elegance in whatever I compose, because even grit can be graceful."
Beking has shot shows, hosted exhibits, and been a part of some of the best artistic showcases in Chicago. His work has been commissioned by prominent clients such as Loews, Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Doubletree and Radisson, and has received recognition and publication from Chicago Social/Modern Luxury Magazine, Michigan Ave Mag, the Chicago SunTimes, and more.
