Meet Jomo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jomo.

Jomo, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My name Jomo Morgan I’m from Atlanta, Georgia, but based in LA & Arizona. I started taking pictures around 2013 after I stopped playing basketball (Senior Year High School). I attended a Toro Y Moi concert in Atlanta and I had brought my camera and I was able to just come as close I wanted because I had it. I love music and that really got me into doing concert photography; So I was kinda shocked and ever since then I’ve just attended a lot of concerts, festivals, events, etc. due to my camera being able to take me to these places and meet some of the artists I listen to on a regular daily basis and actually build a relationship.

Has it been a smooth road?
It hasn’t been a smooth road but it hasn’t been the worst either. I believe whatever you do in life (occupation wise) it’s not going to be a cakewalk. If you really WANT to be at the top of what you do and really work on your craft and build yourself you have to go through struggles. These struggles determine how much do you want it, and I’ve learned that consistency is key. I always tell myself I’m not climbing a hill, I’m climbing a mountain.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I’m a concert/portrait photographer I take pictures of Artists mainly rappers, as well as models, so lifestyle photography as well. Documenting hip hop is a big part of what I want to achieve with my photos as well as just my brand. I’m also starting to get into modeling as well so I’ve been in front of the camera a little more, I wouldn’t really put my face out there or put pictures of myself so people didn’t really know who I was so I’ve been changing that recently. With my pictures I just want people to feel as if they were with me or were experiencing what I felt in that situation or at that moment.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I do believe Los Angeles is a really good place but at the same time, it’s not due to saturation. There are so many opportunities here but you also have to consider the competition and that’s why I say consistency is key. I’m not saying you can’t be a photographer but people think they can just wake up and boom they’re someone just because they have a number on an app that shows them how many people are following them. Id says you just have to find the right people/friends who will motivate you and help push you to where to be where you want to be in life.
