Kamilia Boyd Boyd
I live to be inspired. It's not one talent that I've been blessed with that I've wasted away. I've pursued and continue to pursue all my dreams. Without going crazy..lol.
Kamilia Boyd, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My father had a Fuji camera, and I was the only child that nagged him about developing the film and so excited when they came back. That's when he decided to buy me my own for my 6th-grade graduation. My aspirations in life are to create change. I want to break down walls of self-hate. I want people to love themselves. I know the magic in me, and it's been proven that I photography can be used to do so.
Who is your inspiration in life Kamilia Boyd? How do you keep inspired?
Nature. Fashion. Love. My son's. I want them to be proud of me and to learn to never give up on your dreams.
We all make mistakes Kamilia Boyd; 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.
Being a bit more open to their ideas.
Kamilia Boyd, 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?
It's funny because being the wardrobe stylist, makeup artist and photographer I have a natural system that works. Time has never been an issue because the energy is so positive they never rush me..lol. However, editing can be timely, and because of how much work I put into the project I do wardrobe fittings in prep before makeup and hair or sometimes the day before.
Please tell us, Kamilia Boyd, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
When I was booked for a wedding. Oh, my. Everything had to be about time and location.
Kamilia Boyd, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I give consultations before booking or taking anyone money. I've been blessed with client's that wanted to be blank canvases.
Kamilia Boyd, 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 first celebrity opportunity was working with Havok Jones out of Atlanta Georgia. Three girl's I had to style and photograph.
Kamilia Boyd, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I'm always creative with my work. It's never difficult.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Be patient. YouTube. School isn't for everyone. Take pictures of everything. Don't limit yourself to just people. Stay inspired.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
