I bought a camera to go to hip hop shows to take pictures of sneakers for a music and sneaker blog I started back in 2010. That's all I ever wanted to do with my camera. As you can see the universe had other plans for me. haha.

What was the most fun you’ve had on a shoot?

I would say the time I spent in LA and all the shoots I did there. It is something I have never thought I would have the chance to do and I went out there and exceeded my expectations for how I thought I would do. It was a really good feeling and a great confidence builder to go into a bigger market and do incredible work

Which part of the photography process do you enjoy the most?

I love interacting with the subjects. There is always a good chance a dance party will break out as a way to get them to loosen up and have fun.
