Curtis, who’s career spans over 13 + years covers everything! From weddings, to sports and fashion events, to concerts, and portraits, he really does it all. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Curtis at two different fashion shows. He is such a joy to work with! He is funny and easy to talk to while maintaining a professional demeanor. And the when the shows begin he captures the most incredible images!
Growing up in Gainesville, FL, Curtis enjoyed running track and playing football but he always had an eye and a heart for photography. While at the time the dream seemed unreachable, it never strayed too far from his mind.
After retiring from the Army in 2005, his passion for photography really began to take form after the passing of his mother. “We did not have any pictures of her,” he told me, “and I did not want other families to have that happen to them.” And while that may have been what ignited his career, Curtis has definitely made a name for himself in the world of photography. He continues to tell beautiful stories through the images he captures.
To date Curtis has an impressive list of accomplishments to put on his resume. He has attended numerous fashion shows and sporting events. He has photographed many celebrities including: Tone-X, the group NEXT, Big 3 Basketball, Will Downing, as well as many others. And while he enjoys doing all of these different endeavors, his real love is working in the studio. “It gives me a chance to really create,” he explained.
Curtis is a very talented guy and he shows no signs of slowing down!
