My Story:
I was once told by a Houston Texas based Photographer that he hoped I was doing well in law school because I had no future in photography. I will always remember that statement and I use it to fuel my desire.

My name is Justin O'Keith Higgs. Art is one of my passions and I feel it is an amazing way of self expression. It is my way of regaining my sanity, escaping from what the world throws at me everyday. I love capturing those special moments in time. That single moment belongs to me and no one else ever owns it.

I do things differently when I create. My images are not just simple moments of time captured in light. I do something special. It is called Soul Photography. I have a natural gift. A talent. An impeccable eye for detail and beauty. Not only do my images capture something beautiful, they tell a story. I can instantly look at them and know who that person is. What makes them tick. I can feel what they feel and more. That is what separates me from my colleagues. There is some great work out there and each day I work harder to make myself better. However, there is one thing you cannot teach that each of my photos have: heart. It is deeper than seeing and clicking. It is creating that image in your mind days ahead of time and manifesting it. That is what I do. I make magic.

Art, Paint, Male Bodybuilding, Fitness, Fashion, Underwear and Creative shoots are my game. I love creating things that are different, edgy and push the imagination. From outdoors to the studio, I can create the look you are going for. I do all types of shoots except weddings, events and other limited creativity type of work. I like to be able to work with my models and clients to deliver exactly what they desire.

I have been doing this for about 10 years and I am constantly learning and trying new things. Photography is still an integral part of my life and always will be. I am here looking for new talent to expand my portfolio and seeking photographers for guidance, so please feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you and thanks for checking out the page!
