Do you ever wanna know the details of how I shoot? My gear? Or how I edit? Now you will get all the knowledge of how I do everything photography.
How old are you?
I am 18 years old, and I just graduated high school, and am currently going to community college. tbh idk for what yet still deciding.
Where are you based out of?
I am based out of Houston, Texas!!!
What camera do you use?
I currently use my Canon 5d Mark 3! This is the only camera i've ever shot on and the first camera I ever bought!
What lens' do you use?
I always use my Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 lens, and I also have a Canon 50mm 1.8 I rarely use this but I have used it before.
What do you use & how do you edit?
I edit all my pictures through Adobe Lightroom Classic, I use presets from Stewart Clementz they are super duper old but they work! I also have the angiejustshootme preset pack & I am in love with the moody preset its on of my favs! I also just made one of my own presets and thats what I used to edit my cotton field pictures :)
How would you describe your vibe?
When it comes to my vibe I go for a moody look with greenish blue undertones. I love having blue in my shoots, for example like jeans, the sky, flowers, jewelry, or even shoes. Anything blue I live for it!!
When did you start photography?
I started photography in January of 2018, so I've learned everything I currently know in about 9 months. I still don't know everything and still bs being a photography lol. But I have come a long way since my first shoot. I am all self taught, i've learned everything by watching youtube videos, asking my dad when I have a mental breakdown, or from other photographers I know.
Why did you start photography?
I actually started photography, because my dad does videography & some photography and I wanted to do photography, but they way I see things. I wanted to make my own content, so I bought a super expensive camera and lens and then started shooting.
What is your goal in photography?
My ultimate dream goal for my photography is to work with brands! I am slowing getting there with working with local and online boutiques for styled shoots with my senior reps, but I would die if I ever got the chance to work with Urban Outfitters, and do campaigns with them or something of that nature. Literally everyones dream, but just letting ya know. I am putting it out in the universe so maybe one day.
What do you use for your website?
I have gotten a ton of questions about my website and what I use! I use Squarespace and have only used Squarespace since I started. It's the best I've redone my website about 5 times as far as the layout and everything. It's super easy to use and I love it!! @squarespace plz sponsor me:) The template I am currently using is;
