I started out with a Kodak Easy shoot taking pictures of nature and random objects around the house… I didn’t really get good until I started shooting with a photographer named Shelby Lewis in Nashville back in 2008. He was amazing support who allowed me to be his consistent second shooter at a couple of his weddings. When I moved back to Chicago I began shooting a lot of music and entertainment events. My favorite was a large televised gospel concert in 2012 with literally ALL of my favorite artists in one place including Yolanda Adams, Donald Lawrence, and Fred Hammond! What made that moment even more amazing was that my shots were all published in a major magazine and they sent me a couple of copies! That moment really stands out because not only was it a good time, I also got to showcase my talent to an even larger audience and since then I have done even more destination events and weddings! Creativity is my passion and one of my favorite quotes is “Creativity is intelligence having fun”. Looking forward to getting creative and talking with you soon :)
