My passion for photography and video grew out of my love of creating home videos for my family. After several years of working non-stop as an entertainment marketing executive for LIQUID SOUL, a lifestyle marketing agency that I own in Atlanta, I decided that I needed a hobby. Since that time I've studied that art of photography and what was once an occasional activity reserved solely for my family, has since developed into a talent that I have leveraged for LIQUID SOUL, and now I extend to you.  It is my desire to be your photographer for life and help you to capture those precious moments, moments that may otherwise be forgotten or lost in a cell phone camera roll.



PHOTOS BY FANON is not your typical photography company. I prefer to shoot in real life environments, as opposed to a studio. Before each session, I ask a series of questions to get to know you, your personality and what it is you like to do. We then collaborate to develop a mood board for your shoot. 


During our session, I'll capture some traditional portraits, but will reserve the predominance of our time together photographing candid moments that reflect your lifestyle and unique personality.  I do this because I want to see the real you in front of the lens. This technique, in turn, creates stunning portraits that are you, only better!


My images are honest and intentionally include some imperfections as it is my belief that perfection eradicates authenticity. Therefore, I limit the excessive use of Photoshop or other editing tools.



PHOTOS BY FANON is not my full-time job. In addition to owning a marketing firm I am also a dedicated husband, father, and caregiver for my mother. Therefore, I can only accept a limited number of appointments each week. If you are interested in scheduling a consultation, please go to the CONTACT page and leave your information. Please note that available time slots do tend to fill up quickly, however, I will make every attempt to fulfill your request in a timely manner. I look forward to working with you and helping you to create images that will last a lifetime.
