More about Clifton J....
What do you love about your job?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and photography is my favourite way to tell a compelling story. Through photography we can share our ambitions, hopes and dreams for the future.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many portrait sessions for people wanting nice photos for their online portfolio and social media accounts. Depending on the situation I have suggested a roleplay scenario where they "become" their favourite red carpet musician and I'm the paparazzi. It can change how they feel, stand and walk. It's pretty special.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
To be honest, I haven't submitted my work for a formal award, honors or recognition event. It just hasn't been a priority for me. The following I've gained from social media has been more than enough but I guess we'll see where the future takes us.
A fun fact about this photographer
I did a daily photo challenge for over 2 years using my mobile phone and the basic photos app to edit any photos I took with it. This meant I had to work on photography fundamentals like story-telling and composition instead of the "fancy" editing techniques I was also learning. After those 2+ years I could combine both parts of my photography journey (photography and editing).
