#TTL Adorama - Through The Lens

I had the Opportunity to be featured in Season Five of Adorama’s web-documentary-series entitled “Through The Lens” as we take a look into my creative process and unique aesthetic towards photography.

In this episode, I explain my minimalistic approach towards portraiture, my cameras of choice, and I speak on some of my inspirations. This behind the scenes look was created with hopes to help inspire creatives and  hobbyists alike  to pursue their passions in the creative field.

In these photos and video, you can see a few behind-the-scenes-moments of my interview as well as my lighting  setup. 

I would like to thank Adorama for the opportunity to showcase my work and the continued support from my peers in the creative and photography community.

Puma legacy collection

I was given the amazing  opportunity to photograph an editorial for PUMA and their new Legacy II collection. This collection celebrates Black History Month and pays homage to David T. Howard who founded an Atlanta School in 1948 which was a game changer for African Americans. 

Rather than showcase these young black men in a gym with a basketball, I wanted to change the narrative and have the them in a setting that incites reflection and shock because rarely do we see our youth holding  a book in their hands. I won’t analyze  these shots for you , I’ll leave that up to the reader but  I would like to mention that one of my inspirations  was  the famous photo of Huey P Newton sitting in his peacock chair. I am sure you’ve seen it before..
