How long did it take you to find your photography niche?
I was a radio personality for years before I took photography full-time. I already knew I wanted to do celebrity photography since I been around the industry since 1998! I love the energy, excitement and how everyone gets along, unlike other things you can shoot in the industry.
What are your favorite things to photograph?
I love to photograph celebrities, landscape, live performances, headshots and I really like street photography. With street photography it’s on the go and fun to find a spot by walking around and creating magic!
Who are your most valuable customers and which are the most costly?
I love all my customers no matter their job status. One style is not easier than the other, but our job is to capture the moment through our lens and smile at the result. When you tell your client your vision, they give their vision since it is their shoot for a reason and you both high five at the result is a good feeling.
What’s your favorite social media platform for your brand?
When it comes to me, I would say Instagram is my favorite, but I have fun with TikTok as well.
What would be your dream shoot?
To be a tour photographer for a musician or travel the world and shoot really sick landscape pictures. Since my radio career happened, I started photography it would be dope to travel the world and shoot pictures on tour.
What’s a food that you used to dislike, but now you like it?
When growing up I didn’t like avocados, it’s an everyday essential now, LOL.
If someone gave you $3,000 today, what would you do with it?
Would invest it in something to set me up more for retirement. Stocks, bitcoins, you name it, I would do it.
If you could attend any sporting event in the world, what would you choose?
I would like to shoot pictures at the Superbowl!
What is your favorite way to relax during the weekend?
What is relaxing, lol? As business owners, we have no days off. I do love to take time off and relax at the beach for a week or two. The beach is nice and relaxing to me.
If you could meet any figure from history who would it be?
If I could sit down with anybody from history, it would be Martin Luther King Jr.
