Meet Documentary Video Photographer
Jakiera's Eye started as a hobby starting with a 2-eyed toy camera at the age of 9. My love for photography had developed and on my 16th birthday my mother gifted me with my first SLR. By 19 y.o I was shooting as a professional photographer at weddings and for events.
A few years later, the effects of people and life obstacles influenced me to put my passion on the back burner. As a result, I only revisited photography here and there as a form of therapy, a hobby, or at the request of service.
Photography did not reclaim it's position in my life until almost 8 years later. Since then, I have been on a steady climb to absorb all the skills and knowledge that I missed out on during that time. My goal is to perfect my craft and remind myself why I fell in love with photography, people, places, things, art and capture it all in a way that only Jakiera's Eye can.
After 18 years as a hobbyist, I've chosen to transition into an official business on Jan. 10, 2017. On June 7th, I quit my job in finance to follow my lifelong passion. Now I'm fulfilling my childhood dream as a full-time professional photographer! I'm hopeful that those who share similar interest will join me on this journey. Thanks for visiting!
