Who is Depaard?

My name is Jaelin Helm and I am a Portrait and Landscape Photographer based here in Seattle, WA. The name Depaard comes from the dutch language meaning "The Horse" and honestly all the usernames were taken on Instagram, so I came up with one in another language. 

I started photography five years ago in my junior year of high school and I first started off with my iPod Touch since I didn't have a job at the time. I've progressed myself over the years through constant practice and the cameras I've gone through to get where I am now. Most of the people you see in my portraits are my friends and without them, I couldn't have gotten any better. 

The camera I shoot now is a Fujifilm XT20, but before that I had a Nikon and Sony. For bookings and work, please email helmjaelin8@gmail.com
