How did you get into photography/videography? 

Back in 2010, two of my best friends and I decided to start a YouTube channel that consisted of comedy skits. We eventually went our different ways but I kept with wanting to learn more about video and filmmaking. I decided to enroll in The Art Institute Of Seattle and was going for my associates but later decided to switch schools and then found myself at The Los Angeles Film School where I recently just graduated with my bachelors in film. The photography side of things, honestly I never really liked it but during my time at The Art Institute, I was filming music videos for local artists who eventually moved out of Seattle. Since I couldn't find any other artists to reach out to, I decided to start taking photos of my friends for fun. Once I started posting on Instagram, I was getting some really good feedback and decided to continue and shoot photos.

What did you first use to take photos?

The very first camera I ever used to take both video and photos was the Canon T2i. Still a very great entry-level camera for beginners.

Where did you go to school? Do you have any formal training/self-taught?

The Art Institute Of Seattle and Los Angeles Film School. I also did do a lot of learning on YouTube which is such a great platform for up and coming filmmakers and photographers to learn from people that are currently killin' the game!

If you could take photos of any 3 people who would it be?

Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Usher

Brittney (1 of 1)-6.jpg

If you could take photos of any 3 people that are no longer living who would they be?

Michael Jackson, Bruce Lee, and 2pac

If you could take photos in any 3 cities what would they be?

Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago

What is your goal when you capture photos of someone?

Whenever I go out and shoot, I always make sure my composition is on point. Composition for me is definitely king and I think that’s what makes a lot of photos stand out.

What music do you listen to when you edit photos?

Rap and R&B

What's your favorite app on your phone?

Instagram!

What is your dream as a photographer?

Honestly, I can’t really say I have a dream as a photographer since my career path is in filmmaking. Photography I would still definitely be doing on the side either for fun or freelance while I'm working on the film industry but If I did have to choose a dream as a photographer, it would have to be a personal celebrity photographer.

What is some advice you would give to someone with a dream to be a photographer/videographer?

Probably the biggest advice I can give anyone just coming into the game is practice, practice, and more practice. Honestly, when I started getting into videography, all I did was study and learn on YouTube before I decided to go to film school. During that time watching tons of tutorials on YouTube I was going out shooting and practicing whatever I could, whether it was film nature, myself other people, it just honestly did not matter as long as I was going out and practicing. The same goes for photography as well, reach out to people and use them as your subject and keep doing it. The more you practice, the better you'll always get. I definitely feel no one can never learn too much cause there’s always going to be something new to learn.

Videography is my first love hehe. I discovered it watching the Halloween film that was released in 1978. I was eight this was in 2003. Its more of a cinematography. Photography came at a weird time I don't do it as much but don't sleep on my skill homes.

What is school again? I tried school it didn't work out film school if that. I was taught filmmaking at Reel Works Teen Stories on 540 President St Brooklyn NY 11215. Great program for young kids between the ages of 14-20. I have been in the program for almost 4 years now going on 5 I started when I was 19. I got my foot in the door into a lot of shit you can too!

Do you have any nicknames?
