When did JaQuan Borders become a photographer?
I've always enjoyed taking photos, all throughout High School. You'd almost always see me carrying around my camera, capturing the moments. Encouragement, push and kind words kept me going, my peers helped create JB, photography found me. As a professional, my journey started in 2014, when I started shooting with signed models. Traveling gave me the most joy and confidence, shooting in beautiful Miami, Tampa Florida, San Francisco, Oakland, LA, DC, TX and so on. I gained respect pretty fast with numerous publications, three in one month, Fuse Magazine issue 9, Ellements Magazine issue 5, Model Modele bare issue. It all happened so fast. I was still learning as this all transpired. I then realized it wasn't just an enjoyable hobby anymore. I found LOVE for shooting and stuck with it. 2015 came I got a bit down, stopped shooting and traveling for a while. It was a minor setback which paved the way for this major comeback. Now realizing that what I am doing now is going get me to where I desire to be. 2016 I had the opportunity to work for Lifetouch, in the studio as a professional photographer. Taking more of the family portraits, toddlers and babies. Often asked; what is your style? I enjoy shooting fashion brands and event photography. However, I am very versatile. Thanks for following me on my journey, JaQuan Borders.
