What inspired you to pursue photography?
I attended an Oprah convention that allowed attendees to bring cameras. I’m aggressive by nature and not afraid to go for what I want, so I placed myself with the media team. I became a part of the media and was even pulled in places behind the scenes. That experience sealed the deal for me and I knew anything was possible.
Among the celebrities you photographed, who were the most significant for you?
Photographing President Obama was my ultimate goal. Not only was I able to capture him while in office, but [also] during a historical moment at the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches. All of the other images I’ve captured after that moment is gravy.
