Meet Keion LeMar Hayes of Steez Media

Today we’d like to introduce you to Keion LeMar Hayes.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’m from a small town well really the outskirts of this town called Jonesboro, Louisiana, where I grew up in this town is called St.Rest. Let’s see I started doing photography my sophomore year in college at Grambling State University and from there, it took off into me falling in love with the art of photography. When I first started shooting while attending Grambling, I was mainly capturing sports, concerts and other local campus events for not only the campus newspaper but other local newspapers around the areas. Anyways since I was younger, I have always wanted to live my life in California but never had a way of means to getting there. Until photography came in my life in college. To touch back on my college days, my junior year of college through a lot of trial and era, I was able to found an internship in downtown Los Angeles working as an assistant. At that point of my life, it was like that initial first taste for me getting out to California and once I got there, I knew I wasn’t going back home. So after the internship the following year, I decided to move to California right after I graduated. It’s been quite a journey getting here to California.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has been both a smooth and challenging road. Got the best of both worlds basically. Some days it was very smooth and some were terrible. The smoothest road was actually getting here and two of the bad roads was missing family and trying to figure out life here you know my purpose, I struggled with that a lot and still do just not as much. I know I don’t have it figured out yet but I am content with not knowing you know. The known unknowns are unknown but known but we really don’t know.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Well Steez Media, is a photography business. I specialize in photography and all aspects of photography. Such as concert/event, fashion, portrait, landscape, and sports. I am most proud of as a company is the fact that I am able to capture memories it feels my heart with joy being to capture and create those. My eye sets me apart from others.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I grew up on a small farm in the countryside of northern Louisiana. So for me, I was mainly interested in Football, four-wheelers, cars, video games, bugs, and seeing the world. I was a quiet kid fully of energy.
