WHO IS TEAM CHUUBIE?
Team Chuubie is photographer Steven Chu (Chuubie) and network of collaborators. We've focused on visual production and documentation of event experiences since 2013, though Chuubie has professionally shot since 2008.
Note: Due to a November 2016 hard drive failure, we lost approximately 30% of archived photos. If you have a photo you'd like to license a better resolution copy of and don't see it under the event album, it may be unavailable. However, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to double check.
