TB: How did you get into photography?
G: I have always loved taking photos of absolutely everything since I first discovered what a camera was. But, I first started taking it seriously in June 2017 when I travelled to the east coast on a school trip. I brought my camera because I had never been to the east coast before and I wanted to capture everything, for the memories. But throughout that week, I was taking photos of all my friends and that's when I realized how much I truly loved this. Once I got back home, I would do very small photoshoots with some of my friends until June 2018 when I decided to share my work and created my account!
TB: What inspires you and your photography?
G: Some things that help me become more inspired and become more creative is work from the other collectives i am apart of like @changingwomxn & @thedefiantmagazine. These collectives and so many more inspire me so much as there are so many young creatives working, and producing more content everyday.
TB: How would you describe your photography style?
G: As I specialize in portraits, my photography mean I mostly work with people and models. As I work more with teens myself, my style of photography completely revolves around them. I use my photography to capture these happy and cheerful memories of the adolescent life. So, I would describe my style as less editorial and more candid and fun.
TB: Do you prefer digital or film photography?
G: I prefer digital, mostly because it's what I first started out with and what I first learned. Film photography is absolutely beautiful and I have yet to explore all of it, but I am definitely looking forward to learning more about it.
TB: Do you want to pursue photography as your career in the future?
G: I would love to keep pursuing photography in the future because it has definitely become more than a passion for me. I can't even imagine letting go of it. As for being a full time freelance photographer, I am not sure, but who knows, you never know what the future holds.
