The thing that is unique about me is that I am bold. I love new environments and no matter where I am, it's always just me and my client and everything else that can create the magic.
Dexter, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is art and photography. Photography keeps me going. My aspiration is the be a photographer that people can say my work is different and that leaves them speechless.
I started photography ironically watching a movie. I bought a camera, and I knew it was love.
Who is your inspiration in life Dexter? How do you keep inspired?
My Inspiration is Kat Irlin. The New York photographer, her Instagram is @katinnyc.
I stay inspired by new ideas. And learning new concepts and using my life experiences in my work.
We all make mistakes Dexter; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
The mistake I made I double book two clients. I wish I would have been more detailed.
Dexter, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I write down everything; I set location and time to make sure the client agrees.
Please tell us, Dexter, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
This time I had this experienced model, and she brought her agent along. I was nervous the night before but I made sure I had everything in order, and I was on top of everything.
Dexter, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
This time I had a model who wanted to wear all white, but I told her why it wasn't a great idea because of the lighting and she thanked me.
Dexter, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment was when I got my first sunrise picture. I then realise this is what photography is made of. Waking up at 6:15 am and waiting on the sun.
Dexter, 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 time I had no props for some reason and I search around and found roses that I needed. It was exciting because it was natural.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
The advice I would give is to stay hungry. Be very consistent, and if you want to be great, you may have to sleep less and work more.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I'm looking to collab with fashion talents, brands and creative artists. Ralph Lauren, Giovanni, Louis Vuitton, Coca-Cola, Skittles, and with models.
