For everyone that works a Monday - Friday, 9 to 5 we're almost there y'all. To keep you inspired I want to share my next Creative Crush Wednesday, Tasha Bleu. Tasha is freelance photographer and genius behind the media company Treu Blue Imagery.
Let me tell you, Tasha is a BEAST. Since I'm a stalker of creatives I admire I have a little information on Tasha. Tasha began her career in Providence, RI by watching YouTube videos and doing her research on the history of photography. Fast forward a year later and her photos were featured in Elle. Fast forward another and she became a contributor for Hypebeast. From there she's worked with people and brands such as: Adidas, Nike, Complex, and Roc Nation. To recap: you don't need a lot to get to the goals you want, you just need to put the work in and be passionate about it. *soak that in, enjoy a few pics and we'll finish this a few photos down.
Tasha specializes in modern-contemporary street style photography. In the beginning she focused more on menswear but now (in my opinion) her work has branched out while keeping the focus on street-wear culture. In an interview (can't remember which one) she mentioned also wanting to start a magazine, clothing line, and much more!
There's a few reasons why I admire Tasha. 1.) She's an black woman in the creative field KILLING IT 2.) Recently she had a billboard in Times Square. That reminded me how far you can take your influence as a creator if you put in the work 3.) She's making a name for herself in a male dominated industry while sticking to her morals. 4.) Her photography is wonderful!
As many, I definitely want to work with Tasha in some capacity one day, she's on my bucket list of influencers. To read more about her check out some of the interviews below. Let me know what you think and if there are artists I should check out LIST THEM!
