Let's Work Together!

It’s now been 20 years since the camera and I have been creating which evolved into directing, making stills and exhibiting my fine-art photo and video artwork in galleries and art spaces across the nation. My main day job for years was as a professor teaching photography, film and television production courses. I have co-produced a documentary that aired on PBS and in my early career I worked in the film and television industry in New York, including places like DreamWorks. I have studied mass media and visibility, especially for people of Color, for years.  
 
This has all led me to having a great understanding of what is appealing and resonating to audiences as it pertains to visuals and messaging. 

But that’s not the only fuel I got! Let me give you a little backstory about what fuels me to do what I do.

Success Stories

“We had a ball with Shané and even more so enjoyed the outcome and the lifelong memory she gave my sister and I. We were fortunate enough to have a [Beauty] photoshoot experience with her and it's an experience that she made enjoyable, fun and better yet one that will be in our memory book forever. She was professional, patient, produced a great product and did not micromanage the project, but gave great guidance!"
