Since I was 12 years old, the art of capturing emotion in editing, photography and filmmaking has been my undying passion. Being a self taught artist has truly been the biggest blessing in my professional journey; it has forged in me an inextinguishable fire to create new ways for people to see their environment and those around them. I have had the incredible opportunities to edit and create projects from music videos, to feature films, to educational videos, to clothing spots, and more. I have had the honor to photograph some of the top companies, athletes and artists in the world. Through all of these experiences, I have come to realize that no matter what I am shooting or editing, the only way to produce the results I expect is to fall fully in love with the person, the project, and the moment that is in front of me. In creating a style I have taken all that I have learned, all that I have experienced, and combined them; pulling from wedding inspiration when I shoot athletes, pulling from athletes' inspiration when shooting Behind the Scenes. The common factor is the most important nuance, and it is that we all share: humanity. We all share the same abilities to love, to fear, to inspire, to move others and to be moved ourselves. This is what is the most important concept for me in creating as an artist, but first and foremost, as a human being. Every artist has their canvas, every athlete has their ability, every person has their story. The story, the journey, the getting there, is what drives me everyday to embody through a lens; to make the visible connection into the heart and soul of a human, that is what I am about. I have shot and worked for and been featured in National and International Companies such as Tempest Freerunning, Billie Eillish, Ashe, Rainsford, Vogue, UK Frowning Magazine, MuvMag, JoJo Electro, Lady Groves, Fiasco Daniels, Lucid Eyewear, Iron Lily, and many more.

More about CC W....

What do you love about your job?

I love first and foremost about my job is that I have been able to create a style that is unique. I love that through my many ventures as a photographer, and the many types of projects and subjects I have shot, I have a new and different way of looking at the work than most do. Most wedding photographers have never shot freerunners and parkour athletes I have. Most Behind the Scenes Photographers have never shot maternity, boudoir, or engagements, I have. The fact that I am able to pause a moment or segment of time and emotion, and capture that for all of eternity, is truly an awesome gift to be able to share with the world. The ability to capture all different types of activities, faces, realities, and environments and am able to tell their story well, is a huge pat on the back to me and my work, as that is what truly matters to me at the end of the day. Seeing the satisfaction and joy from my clients when they receive their photos or projects back truly is the best part of the job.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I do not have a "speciality" per say in photography, but my specialty could be considered capturing the moments and essence that is curated in front of me from my subject. I have shot clothing, jewelry, many different athletes, singers, artists, live events, family portraits, weddings, engagements, maternity, and the list goes on. The key in making any shoot special and intimate is the ability to express human emotion and truly represent what the essence of the subject is, or what the essence of the brand is trying to portray. If you fall in love with your subjects, they in turn will fall in love with you, what you create from love is magic.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I have photos featured in Vogue Magazine with singer Billie Eilish, Frowning UK Magazine with singer Billie Eilish, and in the online Movement and Parkour site MuvMag.
