2. What do you do for a living?

I do a few things actually… My main talent is photography. I own and operate a studio located in downtown Atlanta called AreaFourTwelve, where I shoot celebrity clients, brands, and models. I’m also a DJ for events and night clubs.

3. Who are some of your biggest influences in your industry?

So far as the photography aspect of my career,  I without question have to say people within the likes of Mike Tang in Los Angeles, and the talents of ShotBySed from Atlanta, have had a sizable influence on me, my style and the way I choose to work.
Mike Tang, also known as Ohrangutang Photography’s images have been favorites of mine for years now… I still look to him for inspiration till this day! I have some kind of infatuation on the way he directs and captures very genuine moments with his models and the overall mood he portrays in his images. He does like a natural sexy kind of thing, but it’s not sexual; and I love that. All of his images seem natural… Almost as if it’s just him and the model hanging out, and they just so happen to get amazing images.
Sed has always been and continues to be very innovative in his career when it comes to the way he lights his images, his overall color scheme, props, and cleanliness. In my opinion, you can not talk about the Atlanta photography scene between the years of 2014-2019 and not mention his name. He is for sure one of the trendsetters in ATL when it comes to photography.
On the DJ side, It’s an honor to say that one of my biggest influencers was also my teacher and is a good friend of mine, DJ PForReal, who also happens to be Lil Uzi Vert’s DJ. I’ve had an interest in being a DJ since I was maybe 9 years old; But growing up, I could never afford the equipment. It wasn’t until I started making my own money in college that I was able to purchase what I needed to jumpstart this interest/ hobby of mine. PForReal and I went to college together and we met around the same time I was just starting up my photography career… One thing led to another via conversation and we came to an agreement that in exchange for photos he’d teach me how to mix, and it has been history ever since.

4. What would you consider your biggest accomplishment thus far in your career?

I have recently been picked up by the Record Label Authentic Empire as one of their cameramen. They have given me big opportunities and have put me in rooms with some very powerful people. I am without question enjoying my time with them. The people there are great and I am looking forward to where they take me in as well as where the company goes.

5. What legacy would you like to leave behind for yourself?

I want people to look at visuals whether it be pictures or video and hear club DJs and think to themselves… “That was some James D. Love level sh*t.” I want people to see my work and understand how different, complex, and/or genuine it is. I took something that you were already familiar with and reintroduced it to you with a twist. When you see my images, You feel what the model felt, you feel the colors, understand the angle, and take in everything that it took to create this.

My goal every time I DJ is to not only make sure they have a good time, but I want to give them an experience they can not get anywhere else. I strive to make sure I represent every era, region, and vibe in the crowd. I show off versatility which is why I continue to get booked.

6.  Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

Yung Miami Unveils Exciting “Yams” Era in a Dazzling Comeback Trail, Are You Ready for the Yams Revolution

The dynamic duo of City Girls, Yung Miami and JT, is gearing up for a remarkable transformation in 2024. While Yung Miami soared on the business front with her acclaimed podcast last year, the musical aspect faced a setback. Their album RAW didn’t quite hit the mark with sales, leaving fans and critics unimpressed. However, the tides are turning for JT and Yung Miami individually, especially with Yung Miami dropping the fire track “Sideways” over the weekend.

But that’s not all – Yung Miami is set to embrace a whole new era, and she teased it back in January with a cryptic tweet. “Welcome to the ‘Yams Era.’ I’m so excited for this era of my life; we’re about to have some FUN!!!” Fans are still decoding the meaning behind “Yams,” with some speculating it’s a play on how to pronounce Miami or exploring unique definitions on Urban Dictionary.

Regardless, Yung Miami seems to be fully embracing her roots and infusing it into everything she does. A month after hinting at this fresh approach, she dropped a tantalizing “Yams” trailer on Instagram. In the video, she discusses her comeback while showcasing glimpses of studio sessions and teasing a stylish ginger hairstyle. Yung Miami declared, “Welcome to the YAMs Era! The Yams Era is my Prime time! In the Yams, we do ginger hair…focus on ourselves…& get money! Yams is the new lingo… To my fans, The YAMS…this is the new us. Drop a 🍠 if you’re ready!”

Support poured in from fellow artists like JT, Saweetie, and more, flooding her comments with yam emojis and encouragement for this exciting new chapter.

Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.

Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:

  1. Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
  2. Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
  3. Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.

Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns

Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:

  1. Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
  2. Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
  3. Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
  4. Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.
