Davion Washington has had a touch-and-go relationship with photography since he was a kid taking snapshots of family and friends, but it wasn’t until about 4 or 5 years ago that he began thinking about photography as a profession and lifestyle. And it all goes back to movie posters.
Davion has been a longtime fan of Hollywood movies, but it was the movie posters that got his attention most. What amazed him was how the artist (or photographer) who created the poster image was able to tell an entire story in a single image. As an emerging digital artist, this is the sort of challenge that got his juices flowing.
Washington is currently wrapping up his Associate Degree in Commercial Photography at the College of Southern Nevada. During his tenure at CSN he has managed to greatly refine his lighting skills, which along with his skills in Photoshop is going to be his meal ticket moving forward.
Prior to entering the photography program at Southern Nevada, Davion’s lighting experience was limited to speed lights and whatever light was available. Not so today.
