One of the best feelings for me is having people want me to be their photographer because they simply love my craft and artistic style. It gives me real joy knowing the fact that people out there really enjoy my work and even look forward to viewing my latest content online - it's mind-boggling.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
My photoshoots have been really widespread. From shooting headshots for individuals business and dating profiles, to doing work for people to simply have something new on their social media platforms, to events such as birthdays, small weddings, and parties, and furthermore transitioning to the club scene capturing the essence and vibe of the electric environment. There's just so much. I believe I'm somebody who brings something different to the table so I always try my best to use my artistic eye and unique perspective on things to create a special and memorable shooting experience during every photoshoot that I have.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
Well, I can't say that I've received any awards or honors for my work, but I just recently starting working more on my Facebook business page for my personal photography business where I have a 5 out of 5 rating from the reviews from the people that I shoot with. I was recognized by the higher management at the Ocean Resort Casino whom are very fond of my work, hence making me their primary photographer for their nightclub as well as photographer for their special events throughout the casino.
A fun fact about this photographer
On top of everything that I do, I am also a Lyft driver which works in juxtaposition with my photography because it helps me find new locations for future photoshoots when I drop people off to destinations where I've never been to before.
