Actually it was suggested that I take pictures years ago by some of the models I used to manage. But I never felt I would have the time to put in the necessary work to be good at it. It wasn't the putting together of a shot that made me hesitate. From being behind the scenes, and sometimes actually directing a shoot, I felt confident on that aspect. It was the technical side, equipment side, editing.
So to test things out, I began by using my Galaxy phone camera. After that I bought my first camera. Several shoots later I began letting people know I was available. I'm not the best, but I'm growing and a few people enjoy my work. My best traits are putting together looks, assisting someone during the shoot, and capturing great shots.
