"Photography captures what the eye alone cannot."

Model Citizen Media provides a platform to recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. Photography captures what the eye alone cannot. It brings adventure and beauty together! What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? My goal is to become the most sought after fine art photographer in the Midwest. I have a long way to go, but the journey there is what makes it so great! How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I'm a very open person - if a client has questions, I'll answer anything they throw my way. Being courteous is key, but if I genuinely cannot accommodate someone, I'm honest about it. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? Not being afraid of myself! Haha. I was too worried if I was creating work people enjoyed, instead of endulging myself in the joy of the work, itself. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? My children. They teach me to live in the moment. They're also a great reminder of where I want to eventually be with my work. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? I find them extremely important! I've taken many and without them, I don't think I'd have progressed so quickly in certain areas of retouching. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Be patient! Also, just have fun with it and don't get too wrapped up in your own ego. As creative, it's easy to fall down that rabbit hole I think and I've learned that while being confident in your work is a must, you don't want to become 'that' person...
