Location: Chattanooga, TN
How did you get into photography?
I’ve always had a thing for playing with cameras when I was younger. I just started truly focusing on photography about a year ago. I look to end up in some career path involving me using a camera or editing in software such as Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, etc.
What are you working on?
I’m always trying to think of ways to get creative with shots. Constantly scouting locations, thinking of props to use, searching for models to work with. However, currently working on a night shoot in Chattanooga with some other local photographers and models.
What is your theme when it comes to Instagram?
I don’t really believe in sticking to one theme. However, if I had to choose a theme, it would be to challenge myself. There’s been times going out to use a prop for the first time or shooting an abandoned building didn’t get the shot like I wanted. I’ll go back out and try to adjust from what I learned.
What’s up with your profile picture? (it’s really cool)
So, there are a couple reasons for the profile pic. Originally when I started this account I made it so you, the viewer, would focus on the content and not the person behind it. HOWEVER, now it’s purpose is to help hide my identity. I post videos from time to time of climbs/rooftops. When a video of myself and a buddy climbing to the top of a Westin, that they are building in Chattanooga; made it to the owners of the building, they called the cops. Now I’ve reduced the info on my profile to bare nothing.
What inspires you?
All the photographers I’ve met to be honest. Gotta shout a few out: @shamueld, @mr.jordanb, @savage_artist and @9mm.gaze, the list goes on and on. I also will just go to hobby stores to see what they have, or even surf around Amazon. Magazines from Art of Visuals also help out during droughts of inspiration.
What do you think of Instagram?
I think Instagram is an amazing way to connect with other people! I’ve met easily 100 people through the app and still talk to a bunch of them from time to time. However, you don’t need to look to it to pay your bills. Sure repost get you publicity and 5K-1M followers is chill. But if that’
