When and how did you become interested in photography?

I’ve been involved in art my entire life honestly. My scope ranges from paintings to drawings & even sculpting. After testing my ability in a variety of art formats, I decided to venture into photography. I started with a Holga, & to say the truth, I hated it (don’t bash me).

After getting my hands on my first digital camera, a little 7.0 Olympus. I first started shooting my sisters, one of them completley banned me from shooting her. While the other agreed to let me photograph her, at a price of, and I quote; “$100 per photo”. Obviously, I moved on, or I would be homeless at the moment.

What gear do you mainly use?

My Nikon, & occasionally my Blackberry…. What? You can’t blame me, I can’t carry my camera everywhere.

Many times photographers find themselves with a full schedule of paying gigs, and end up with little time for doing the work they truly love. Do you struggle with finding time for your personal work?

Not really, everything I’m doing at the moment I consider “personal work”.
Even when I do work for clients, I still consider it “personal work”. I’m in love with it, no matter if it’s for my use, or my clients use. I’m truly blessed for what I have accomplished at my age.

What inspires you?

My little imagination, I just have crazy ideas flash through my heads 24/7.

It’s always wondering off, while I sleep, eat, and shower. It’s creepy at times.

At times, I also take a little peek in fashion magazine. (i.e: Dansk, Numero, I.D etc)

What is your favorite genre?

Definitely high fashion. This is where all those crazy thoughts of mine come to live! I truly love it because when set with a great team of hair stylist, make up artist etc, I can make it all come to life! It’s a truly special feeling that I can’t describe with words.

The closest I can compare it to, is that feeling you get when you hug your mother. It’s just….”that feeling”.

What is one thing you feel makes your style or your work unique?

I’ve been told my work is fresh & innovated. Coming from the younger generation of photographers myself, I believe I offer a new perspective of “high fashion photography” through my eyes

I love color, I have this bad habit of reviewing my work multiple times, & I know there is something missing, so i just start adding color, and it starts to pop. I’ve heard my work is realistic with a sprinkle of fantasy. I’m just a big rainbow inside.

If you could photograph anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

I would truly love to photograph Giselle B√ľndchen. Her aura just oozes out high fashion.

What’s your dream photo field trip?

Shooting in Tokyo, Japan. I’m a big city guy here.
All the skyscrapers showing off their presence in the midst of dawn, with their light shows.
It’s such a fairy tell to be surrounded by all these mammoth buildings with lights.

If you had unlimited resources to purchase any type of camera, what would it be and why?

A Hasselblad h3d. Why? For starters, I would love to say: “I shot Giselle with my Hasselblad”. & yes, i would rub it in your face. Haha

Who are your favorite shooters and why?

I have 3 thus far.

1) Markus Klinko, because his work just speaks out to the world. It does not need a introduction. You can just feel the presence. I consider his work very chic & modern.

2) I also have to say Annie Leibovitz. Her work is clean, sophisticated & tasteful. She just has class all around. I believe her work portrays that very clearly.

3) This photographer is a local here in Dallas/Ft.Worth. I have not met her yet, I hope to soon though. I’ve heard great things about her, she seems like the most down to earth person there is. I stare at her work endlessly, her work is very tasteful & I can tell she takes pride in it. She really is “the photographer next door”, she goes by the name of Dixie Dixon.
