Emeka Goz Anyadiegwu
Outrageously couth is one way to describe Briyana Ford’s current portfolio. Utilizing LED lights and her personal favorite, fur, she is able to tastefully challenge the photographic norms with clients who come to her looking for more than just a photoshoot. They come for an experience.

– How long have you been in the industry?
Roughly two years
– What or who inspires you most to keep going?
She gets inspired to keep going when she sees what it takes to make a photo shoot come to fruition. Briyana looks at all of the people involved and see how everyone’s individual skills aided in the production of a quality photo. From makeup to hair and even creative direction, all of these thoughts manifested into the outcome of a single product. These individuals come together for this common goal of producing quality and find out they have more in common than the photo shoot This concept is really beautiful to Briyana.
