I'm a self-taught photographer with a lot of skill. I'm always looking for new ways to expand. Outside of photography, I'm also a brand developer and entrepreneur with my own clothing company (Rebellious Mentality)
Khyri, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My aspiration in life is to be overall successful. I started my journey as a photographer to make some extra cash. As time went on, I became more passionate about my craft. I'm always optimistic with everything I do so I always knew I'd receive the best possible outcome.
Who is your inspiration in life Khyri? How do you keep inspired?
Big-time moguls in the industry most inspire me. People who do not limit their job title. I'm also inspired by a few fellow photographers who's been in the photography industry a bit longer than I have.
We all make mistakes Khyri; 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.
If I could take back one thing from my career, it would be not taking on so much so early on in my career.
Khyri, 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'm honest with them about turn around time, and I make sure I keep in contact with them to keep them updated and less worried about the process of editing and turn around
Please tell us Khyri, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I'm strategic in everything I do; I'm always trying to meet my top priorities as a photographer.
Khyri, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
It's very rare I try to persuade people to see things my way. Me being an open minded individual and also knowing that the client needs is important. I like to see things their way.
Khyri, 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?
Getting booked outside of my area where the clients paid for my travel for me to come work with them
Khyri, 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 in my work even when I'm not managing the project. Clients always trust my creative genius.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
To stay focus, take your time to learn the craft, and analyse the field before stepping on it.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I'm open to shooting for different clothing company's, helping models build portfolios and more.
