Najee J.
Raleigh Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

For me it began with this fear of myself as a hermit and a search for a tool that would put me in a position to have to be out engaging with the world everyday. Then it became this portal to and catalyst for reckoning with the other and how the camera can be used to breaking down barriers between the photographer, subject and viewer. Now that the image has become devalued as a truth-revealing mechanism, it is free to own its subjectivity and becomes an ideal medium to navigate ideas around humanity, connection, identity, memory, presence, experience and intimacy.

How did you get started with photography

I became interested in photography when I was around 10 and received my first point and shoot camera. By middle school I had saved up enough money to buy myself a starter DSLR and after that, there was no turning back. I started photographing everything and realized I loved taking photographs of people the most. I spent hours on Youtube self teaching until I was finally able to start formal classes in high school and eventually college, leading me to where I am today!

What do you love about your job?

My favorite part of photography is capturing a moment in time to cherish and hold onto forever. The fact that images are able to say so many different things is fascinating to me and something I really try to focus on when doing my job. Because it is only just one frame, the challenge to make each image convey a personality and tell a story is the thing that pushes and excites me every time I pick up the camera.

What are some of your favorite places in Raleigh to take photographs?

I'm completely new to the Raleigh area but I've already began to notice the personality the area has to offer. There are a ton of possibilities for every kind of photography imaginable and I can't wait to further explore.
