Today we’d like to introduce you to Dwayne Byrd.
Hi Dwayne, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I used to play football, ran track, and wrestled . I tore three ligaments in my ankle playing football my junior year in high school so I picked up a camera and started taking pictures of my rapper friends. I also started going to local concerts/ events and started networking from there.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It wasn’t always a smooth road linking with the bigger rappers I wanted to shoot for; it took lots of time and lots of networking; there were times I wanted to give everything up but I didn’t.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a film/digital photographer from Oak Park, Michigan. I’ve been taking pictures for a little over three years now. I’m known for being the go to photographer in my city. I’m most proud to be one of the youngest in my city to be shooting some of the bigger artists in Detroit. What sets me apart from others is my style. I really try to get the most raw in the moment photos.
What was your favorite childhood memory?
Going to Disney World with my family.
