LIFE FOCUS PICTURES

Life Focus Pictures was the big idea that made me an entrepreneur. My husband and both quit our jobs in 2011 to see if we could make this dream a reality. He had attended film school and moved from VA Beach to Lynchburg to pursue a relationship with me. Unfortunately none of the video companies in town were hiring so he was forced to see if we could create a business for ourselves. Fast forward seven years and we have worked with over 200 brands worldwide. We received the Small Business of the Year award in 2016 from the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance and we even had one of our commercials broadcast worldwide on ESPN. I LOVE FILM PRODUCING. It allows me to utilize my degrees in Theatre Arts Performance and Production and gives me the ability to hire fellow actors from my previous theatre career.


EYE FOR EBONY

Eye for Ebony was a passion project that took on a mind of its own. In August 2017, after sending an ungodly amount of time looking for African American stock photos I decided to shoot a few of my own. I did two photo shoots “Live Colorfully” and “I Am Not My Hair”. I put the images up for free on Unsplash and since then those images have been seen over 30 Million times with purely organic reach. Huge Fortune 500 brands have used my images and that inspired me to pursue making a brand to provide images as a service. On New Year’s Day 2018, the site launched. Since then I’ve worked with brands like the American Dairy Association and I was recognized by Honeybook, Gusto & Peerspace as one of their 20 on the Rise: Image Makers. Recently I submitted proposals to Shutterstock, iStock and Canva and all three agreed to let me put my images on their platforms for larger distribution. There is NO GREATER FEELING than being able to see a problem and create a solution to address the need. I still operate Eye for Ebony and I try my best to shoot one bundle a month and make it available on Creative Market for purchase while juggling custom stock commissions.

In case you were wondering, the other two brands I’ve launched since moving to Lynchburg were the Lynchburg 48 Hour Film Project and Transformation Theatre Company. Through the Lynchburg 48 over 100 short films have been made over the course of a weekend since 2014 and Transformation Theatre Company my very first brand raised over $25,000 through three live theatrical productions produced at Liberty University while I was working on my undergrad degrees.
