"The tips I always give out to some starters or that are inspired is go out and shoot as much as you can don't wait for people."

Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. Well I am 20 years old. I am a student at college of the canyons. My journey in photography started last year in spring of 2016. I am very passionate about photography because I love what I do the fact that I get to put a smile on someone's face and be able to have a story behind my photos. I love working on the photos in photoshop and always loving to get better each day. I just always had a creative mindset towards art, and use it towards my photography. What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? My goal is to one day work for a company of advertisements such as Nike, champion, and my favorite urban outfitters. I always see myself progressing each day I retouch my photos I see something different all the time and I love it. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I communicate with others through my Instgram or email. For better communication something's I will give out my phone number. I've been told by clients and others have told me that they hear that I am great with people and it's always a fun amazing time I work with you. I like to know my clients well for me to make them feel comfortable because I like to capture my clients personality in a photo. I am open to all sorts of ideas my clients may have. I am very patient with all. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? If I had a do over again it would prolly be when I was in high school football. I had a lot going for me I just wasn't working hard enough to get where I wanted to go. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? My hero would have to be Chris Brown, because I've always wanted to be as talented as him. He is so creative with his music videos it's like watching a movie. He as a passion for art and I relate to him because I am a great drawer myself. He inspires me to always be creative and not care what people think of you. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? I find creative courses useful because I feel that anything is always helpful towards a goal. Get all the mentorship and information that can help you succeed even more. And I've taken a art course 2 photography classes. And right now I am taking a digital imaging class which is having to do with photoshop. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? The tips I always give out to some starters or that are inspired is go out and shoot as much as you can don't wait for people. Start of small like taking photos at family parties and landscapes. And don't give up always work hard and get better. I always suggest apps and tools for them to use. Just be humble.
