"The way I got to where I'm at now in my career is by focusing on the actual craft of photography."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

How did you get to where you are now in your career?

Being a photographer was something I was always interested in. The way I got to where I'm at now in my career is by focusing on the actual craft of photography. And being very active on social media.

What is your opinion on modeling education?

As a photographer educating yourself on modeling is very important. In order to understand posing, movements and the emotions your trying to portray that a key area to try any master. I have never taken a modeling class I'm a firm believer in educating yourself through the free content on the Internet.

What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?

My dad has been a very big inspiration and a hero in my life. He always has a positive outlook on everything no matter the situation.

Do you feel like you've met your goals?

I definitely feel like I met a tiny fraction of my goals but this is definitely the beginning for me on my journey to being a legendary photographer.

If you had to do it over again, what would you change?

I would have definitely worked on my craft a lot sooner.

Do you have any tips?

I would tell them to shoot as much as possible, educate yourself with the Internet and surround yourself with likeminded individuals.

How do you stay inspired?

I recommend learning to first and foremost to look at interesting light. I also recommend trying to understand composition and off camera flash. It's a lifetime journey to develop these skills that will set you apart.

What photography related things do you recommend?

My favorite camera is the Rebel T3 just because it the first dslr I've ever got.

What's your favourite camera?

I have a canon 6D which is great, but I think a good expensive lens is important.

What is your most memorable experience so far?

There was a time on a photo shoot when I ended up sneaking into a abandoned warehouse. Me my model and my assistant ended up getting locked in the warehouse and had to break our way out.
