Hey, I’m Shastan Williams! I’m a 21-year old native of Sherwood, Arkansas, who simply has a passion for photography. My love for photography started in my 11th grade year of high school when I started modeling. Ever since then instead of being in front of the camera, I was behind it. In 2013, I started my journey for higher education at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. In 2015, I then realized that I wanted to hone in on photojournalism at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I participated in recording & photography events for ASU TV my first semester at Astate. I realized this is what I wanted to make a career out of and then changed my major to Multimedia Journalism with an emphasis in Photojournalism. I belong to several organizations on campus that keep me very busy for my time being. I also work at Best Buy on Highland in Jonesboro to make ends meet while in my undergrad. I am in my third year and hope to graduate December 2017. After grad school at THE University of Texas at Austin, I plan on moving to London and working as a photographer for Harper’s Bazaar, a notorious fashion magazine.
I am a very odd learner, meaning that it takes a lot for me to concentrate at times. I am a visual learner and I love pictures. I have a photographic memory and will remember certain things if there’s a picture involved. I’m also a subjective learner and rely on my instinct for most things.
This is only the beginning and I’m just getting started.
