Our readers would love to get to know you more Courtney. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I'm a well-traveled individual that started out doing graphic design later on it transferred into photography. I'm originally from New York but I have also lived in London and Jamaica. My mother is the key to my photography her being a single parent always allowed me to see her as a strong individual. She gave me the strength to go after what I wanted in life through hard work and dedication from there it was history. I'm addicted to the art of photography. It's simply a Drug that I would never want to give up.

We all make mistakes Courtney, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Taking the time out sooner to focus on my photography is my biggest mistake.

Courtney, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

I inquire what the clients want before starting the job then I short out how I accomplish it.

Please tell us, Courtney , about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

I recall a time I had to do a small clothing companies photo spread. The designer told me there would only be ten looks I would be taking portraits of 30min Before the shoot they called me stating that the looks would increase by ten I then had to run out and had to get extra supplies that I didn't have and call in another assistant to help.

Courtney, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
The client didn't understand my vision prior to the shoot then I just asked her to trust me and from there she loved the work.

Courtney, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment was when I first got published in my first online magazine.

Courtney, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One of my most recent shoot the client gave me full creative expression so I got to create something I wanted to do for awhile.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Shoot, shoot, shoot, and watch other photographers in order to gain more knowledge. 

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands, and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, high fashion for a big clothing line.
