I believe what makes each photographer valued is their “eye” or “vision”…basically an aggregate of what makes anyone unique. The distinct blending and developing of the dynamics that make you think the way you think and perceive the way you perceive. For me it’s how this blend has formed my aesthetic. An aesthetic born from my adoration of creative storytelling, films, music, poetry, my personal interest and technical background in art and architecture, and my outlook on the world curated through travel and life experiences. It’s the attention to detail, the ability to find inspiration anywhere and have that inspiration mature into an entirely new entity. All these factors have, and will continue to influence my personal vision/aesthetic and shape how I approach each project. I get a great deal of satisfaction creating conceptual images. Primarily because of its intention. Many masterpieces have been created by chance, but to be able to consistently have an idea or vision realized with intention is very fulfilling. To know that the result has been achieved by the culmination of inspiration, creativity, personal vision, concept development, planning, technical acumen, execution and post production is very exciting.

Can Camera Companies Support the Black Lives Matters Movement if They Have No Black Ambassadors?

Last week, one of the world's biggest camera manufacturers retweeted a short film of a Black Lives Matter protest shot on one of its cameras. Given that the company’s photography ambassadors for the country where the protest was staged are 19 white men and one white woman, how does it justify lend...

New Cover Story for Faddy Magazine, “Couture Castaway” Shot on the beautiful island of St.Vincent.
The cover image features Vincentian model Geniene Browne represented by Paragon Model Management, Wearing a beautiful White Caftan by Designer Cat Belle. The Models Make-up was done by Amirh Browne, Hair by Tomeca Tash and I had the awesome Andy Browne assisting me.
We were lucky enough to have great weather on this day. So we rented a boat and made our way over to the site wear some of the scenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed. I was looking forward to this location shoot because it was my first time shooting in a small boat like this and it was something I’ve been wanting to do for a while.

Once I got everything positioned where I wanted it, everything else fell right into place. My assistant Andy was set up right behind me manning a three foot Profoto gridded octobox on a Profoto B10 directly over camera. So we positioned the boat to prioritize the view in the background and sometimes used the sunlight as the main light and the B10 as fill and vice versa depending on the direction of the boat in relation to the sun.

It was a great experience that immediately spurred more shoot ideas for the next time. It definitely wouldn’t have been as smooth without the help and guidance of Andy Browne and Alex Barnwell.

Thanks again to Faddy Magazine and to the whole team foreign and domestic.
