We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamar Carrington and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jamar, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I’ve always been artistic with everything I do, no matter what is. I chose to pursue photography to show others the way I see things around me, with my photographs, I can only do so much. I have the ability to see beauty in things that’s not beautiful, and I really hope I’m able to show people the beauty of simplicity it’s amazing. That’s the reason I chose a creative career.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m in the beginning stages of developing my business. I specialize in street photography and Sports photography I use my camera to capture time and share stories one frame at a time. Nothing can speak to people more than a powerful photograph. The thing l love most about photography is that I’m able to express myself through a photograph and express it in a way that’s my own, in a way that people might not have thought about. I think what sets me apart from others is the range that I have I’m able to photograph so many different things. I am a proud father that’s what I’m most proud of. I’m really excited about fatherhood. I’ve made it this far in my career with a lot of hard work, dedication and determination. I haven’t had any serious struggles, with photography you always learning something new, the only challenge I have is trying to get better everyday and to overcome that is stay focused on your craft. The lessons that I’ve learned is to always be open minded to different things, different ideas always be open minded to learning. I want people to know that I have a lot to prove, I feel like art has the ability to change the world and once we become more aware of that and continue to put god first we’ll be able to do anything.
