Creatordale Creator of the Month interview with KFVS12 in Cape Girardeau, MO
I love shooting architecture, because I feel like every building tells a story. Photography is great, because I get to find unique perspectives to make people see everyday things in ways they may not have before. This photo was taken in downtown Atlanta. Such a beautiful city!
My portrait photography is some of my best work! I have gotten to meet so many new people that I ordinarily wouldn't have had the chance to because they have seen, and like my work. It is the best feeling when my clients first see their pictures after editing, and they love them! This photo was taken of my beautiful friend Edith and her daughter!! I love how intimate this photo is!
I love shooting nature because a lot of times, what you see one day will not be the same the next. with so many "once in a lifetime" shots out there waiting to be taken, I like to have my camera with me every time I travel somewhere new. One picture can say a thousand words. This photo was taken at a lake behind a cabin in Carbondale.
I have had a passion for design and photography since middle school. Living in Chicago fueled my love for architecture, and also gave me access to graphic design and photography internships through After School Matters and Gallery 37. I learned so much during that time, I already knew that this was something i could do as a profession. Now I am getting recognition from people I never thought even paid attention to my work.
Had the pleasure of visiting my home city and me and my besties went exploring in Chinatown!! Such amazing architecture!
Harold's Chicken Carbondale
I recently started working at the new Harold's, and they wanted me to take some product photography for their social media marketing team.
Had a wonderful time shooting from the top of Schneider Hall last week.
Black Lives Matter Movement in Carbondale
This year has truly shown us how quickly "the norm" can get switched up. Between the global pandemic, all the racial divide across the country, and just simply trying to pay my bills, I'm honestly amazed I'm still sane. I finally had the privilege of participating in my own march here in Carbondale, Illinois. It was really interesting to see the amount of people from all walks of life out there despite what is happening in the news. I thought i was very important to photograph these moments because this is history in the making. We will continue to push for change!

CM Designs logo recreations
When I get bored sometime l play around with my logo, it's definitely changed throughout the years. But i think i've finally landed on something I like!
Since I've been in Carbondale, I have been able to practice and perfect my photography skills. I've gained a lot of recognition for my work around town!
