WHO ARE YOU?
Being a journalist, artist, musician, and creative is something I have done all of my life; it is truly a blessing from God. I was born to create art, music, and tell stories . It has always come natural for me, it will be the legacy that lives long past my lifetime on earth. I concentrate on multimedia journalism, music, activism, and baseball. Also, I'm a proud member of The National Association of Black Journalists.
WHEN DID YOU REALIZE YOU WERE A PHOTOGRAPHER?
For as long as I can remember I have been a photographer. I remember growing up as a child I had a fascination with cameras and always had one in my hand. As years went on I continued to work on my craft in any way I could with whatever I could. Eventually, I would have my breakthrough moment and the rest has now become the ongoing story of my life.
How did you get started with the Olympus system?
For years I have owned an Olympus OM-1 and always dreamed of owning more from Olmypus. Well that dream came true when I was accepted into The Break Free Program in the fall/winter of 2020. It was an amazing opportunity and I was blessed to receive amazing gear from Olympus.
What’s your go-to Olympus setup?
My go to set-up is my OM-D E-M1X, M.Zuiko 7-14mm F2.8 PRO, and M.Zuiko 40-150mm F2.8 PRO. Although, do plan on acquiring a few more gear from Olympus to add to my setup. I like to keep my gear very minimal and my setup extremely portable.
How does Olympus help you do your job?
Olympus has made me worry free. When out on assignment,freelancing, or just fun I never doubt my gear’s performance. In addition, the build quality of Olympus products I am confident I can go into any environment and come successful. The ability to have light-weight and innovative gear has been absolutely amazing.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A MEMBER OF THE OLYMPUS FAMILY?
One of my favorite parts about being a member of the Olympus family is that I am able to be myself. It is so refreshing to work with people who accept as you are and push to be a better version of your unique self.
TIPS FOR OTHER BUDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
One thing I always tell emerging photographers is “any and every camera is the best camera." It is extremely important to shoot everyday but it is also important to take mental breaks . Also, do not worry about following trends. Instead, follow your heart and be a trendsetter. Lastly, keep it simple. You don’t have to have the most extravagant gear and editing skills. If you spend time studying your craft, honing your skills, being confident in yourself and going to take your dreams you will be great.
TIPS FOR OTHER PRO PHOTOGRAPHERS
My tip for other pro photographers is simply “keep it fresh." Do not get complacent or comfortable. Continue to get better and better each day!
