About me
BFA in Photography-The University of Memphis-Spring 11'

MPS In Fashion Photography from the School of Visual Arts-IN progress-Graduation Spring 12'

I am not just a fashion photographer, but also an artistic director, a coordinator with an imaginative vision. In preparation for my conceptual fashion shoots, I scout a location, design a lighting setup, create an implied narrative, and collaborate with models, clothing boutiques, makeup artists, and hair stylists. Not only am I involved in the overall production of my images, but also I am very involved in the post processing and digital editing of my images. My fashion style photography is influenced by my need to be in control and with my thesis project, I aim to let go of the image and show my process. Fashion photography has ignited in me passion, spontaneity, excitement, and fantasy. This love of photography, masked by perfectionism is what fuels my work and sets it apart from other photographers’. It is more than a fashion photograph; it becomes a work of art.

In 2008, I lived in Hong Kong for 6 months, while taking online Journalism classes for the University of Memphis. I fell in love with this vibrant colorful city and my camera did not leave my side. The camera became my passion, my escape, my visual diary. I knew then that I needed a change in career focus; I knew I wanted to be a photographer. After a year of photo courses at the University of Memphis, I applied to do a photographic study abroad at the University of Westminster in London. The course: Photographing the City: London allowed us to choose a photographic subject that summed up our view of London. I knew immediately what I wanted to photograph. Like the colors of Hong Kong, the colorful leggings of London attracted my attention. In London there were no leggings too outrageous. There were Polka dot, neon, red, pink, zebra, etc. You name it. They wore it. Leggings were no longer just fashion; they became an art form, an outlet for self-expression. I began to see fashion in a different way and from that moment on, I decided I wanted to photograph the art of fashion.
Every experience in my life inspires my photography. My influences are not limited to fashion photography; Instead I take in everything that I am exposed to whether it be music, film, art, fashion, poetry, books, and theatre to create my own art. I was an actress in high school and the theatre influenced me in lighting, set design, and production. I put together an Alice in Wonderland photo shoot as one of my first attempts at conceptual fashion photography. I scouted out the location, I went to thrift stores for clothing, teapots, and other props, I made a bright colorful cake out of cardboard, colorful tissue paper, and beads, and I organized the models, styling, hairstylist, and makeup artist to be there on the day of the shoot. Whew! What a production that was. It reminds me of all that goes into a theatrical production. I am still very involved in the production of my photo shoots; I like to be the artistic driving force behind the image.
