Well, I am an outgoing, friendly kind of person. I treat all with all the love and care I'd hope you be shown to me. I love talking walks and capturing photos at the same time; I call these my "PhotoRuns". I'm a very positive person and have been told that I am also a great people person. If you want to know more you'd have to take me to dinner first (I have also been told that I have a good sense of humour).
Shemar, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is photography, it I my art. I started as a photographer when I discovered my passion for photography through Media Communications; a college diploma program I graduated from. My inspiration is to be like my grandfather; a loving care man that energy everyone loves and can't get enough of.
Who is your inspiration in life Shemar? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is my grandfather. He is like a father to me and has been there for me since before I was born. I keep so inspired because I have loving and caring people around me.
We all make mistakes Shemar; 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.
I'm not perfect; no one is but, to be honest with you, I haven't had a fall out with a colleague being a photographer and I hope I can keep it like that.
Shemar, 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 first try to figure out everyone's wants and needs, once that is discovered, it kind of works itself out for me.
Please tell us Shemar, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
A time where I had to be very strategic was when I was first started as a photographer and didn't have all my equipment. It was tough but lucky I had good friends that help me out, and since I am a very organised person, I was able to make magic still.
Shemar, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
There was a time where I had a client that didn't really see eye to eye with me, so I ended up having to sit and talk with her for about an hour talking with her to convince her on what we had to do. Eventually, it worked, and our shoot went beautifully.
Shemar, 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 as a photographer was when one of my pieces were in the Humber Lucid Art Gallery. Having my piece in a gallery meant so much to me that till this day I am hoping to be in another Art Gallery.
Shemar, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
A Time where I was able to be very creative with my work was when I went on a trip to Cuba with my girlfriend at the time and her friends. It was amazing to use and be in the new environment to capture pictures. I was able to capture some amazing shots at the beach, having my ex-being my model and having the waves crash behind her, it made the picture as beautiful as her.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
My advice to those trying to be a photographer is to know that it's OK to make mistakes. I've heard that the first 10,000 photos you take will be your worst so learn from failure and then you will surely succeed. You got always to stay positive.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Right now I'm up for collaborations with anybody, the more people you know, the higher you move up in the fields in my eyes.
