1. Hi Rachel, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you became a country music photographer?
Hey! Before I was a photographer, I was a graphic designer. I moved to Nashville about 2 years ago and started my first job being a graphic designer only to find out how much I hated doing it. After 3 months, I quit my job to seek a larger dream. I started to work for TITLE Boxing Club as a filler until I found a new job. I handled all social media/digital marketing and that is how I started to get a little more into photography & videography. With a lot of help, hard work, and passion, I worked my way to where I am now!
2. How many years have you been taking photos of country music musicians and who was your first artist to take pictures of?
I have been doing music photography for about a year and half now. I don’t remember who my very first artist was, but I started out doing smaller artists who I believed in.
3. What is your process of taking photos when you are working with an artist or group?
I don’t really have a specific process. I just trust my gut and go with how I feel that day.
4. What 2018 event has been your favorite to take photos of?
Probably Maren Morris & Ryan Hurd’s wedding.
5. Is there anything new coming up with your career for the rest of 2018?
I will be going on tour with a few different artists that I am very excited about!
6. If you had to give advice to up and coming photographer what would you tell them?
Never say no to any type of job, ever.
7. What is one of your favorite quotes?
“Always search for a extraordinary way to communicate the ordinary.” – Chuck Creasy (My old boss I used to intern for)
8. Is there anything else you would like to share?
Be patient and don’t go into relationships as an incentive for networking – go into them with a genuine heart expecting nothing in return.
