Full Frame Hero is solely owned and operated by one Ryan Levy. It was founded in 2009 under the name "Albino Llama Studios".

I picked up my very first camera in 1999 when I received a film-based point and shoot as a birthday present. It was great! Until I ran out of film, and it proceeded to sit in a closet for the rest of its life. (Found it in 2013; the battery case had rusted away, and there was no 14-year-old film inside. Sadness!)

In 2003 or so, I got a hand-me-down digital point and shoot! This was right as I was entering high school, and everywhere that I went, that camera was sure to follow; its memory card was never blank.

Fast forward to 2007 when my mom decides to make the transition to digital photography. She goes and buys a Canon G10, and offers me the opportunity to use an old SLR that she had for years and years. Of course, I took that opportunity. I was having so much fun with my little point and shoot that I wanted something bigger to play with. And thus, I was the owner of a Canon Rebel X with the standard 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 lens. The lens was mildly defective, in that it could only be focused manually. I didn't have the experience of SLR Auto-focus, so I wasn't worried about it in the slightest.

In 2009, with the aid of said Powershot G10 that I constantly 'borrowed' from my mom, Albino Llama Studios was born. It started as a deal with a handful of friends to aid them in their quest for professional, guided portraits that they could post online for their cosplay portfolios. It has evolved into so much more.

In 2010 I upgraded to a Canon Rebel T1i (that was handed down from my mom. I'm starting to see a trend!). Just two years later, I upgraded to a Rebel T2i (Handed down!). And finally, in 2013, I solidified my decision to be a professional hobbyist and invested in a Canon 6D. After all these years of hand-me-downs, buying and owning my own camera was such an amazing feeling.

In May of 2014, I made an executive decision to change my name from Albino Llama Studio to Full Frame Hero. Partly in celebration of my sweet full frame 6D, and partially because I am a hero on every front. And in July, I purchased my favorite lens: The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART. The 50 is by far my go-to lens, and there has rarely been a moment where I would choose something else.

In September of 2016, I started putting together a small in-home portrait studio where he can create even more portraits with more flexibility than ever before.

Along for the ride over all these years is Ryan Redmond. Truth be told, he is the face of the "company". If it weren't for him and his constant patronage with an insatiable thirst for a complete cosplay portfolio, we wouldn't be anywhere near where we are today. In fact, Red has gone on to have some pictures featured in cosplay magazines.
