We had the good fortune of connecting with Tierra Castile and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tierra, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I’m from a small town outside of Houston named van vleck Texas. Being raised in the foster care system it made me want to create a stable place for myself. my upbringing made me determined, humble, grateful and headstrong. It made a version of myself I never expected to be and I’m so proud of who I’m becoming.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is photography I absolutely love what I do. It helps create and capture special moments that others can look back on later in life. It started off as a hobby taking pics at family events. Overcoming the challenges meant I had to step out of my comfort zone and not be so shy and it wasn’t easy to do so. I’ve learned to be confident with what I do and believe In what I’m doing. I want People to know that no matter what keep doing what you love and keep prospering.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would Like to thank God for bringing me this far and putting me on this path to help create and capture memories for myself and others. I would like to thank my family for supporting me and encouraging me to keep going when I wanted to quit. I would Like to thank my mentor Desmun Dangerfield to teaching me ways to improve and get better with my photography.
