Today on the Friends in Beauty Podcast we welcome Photographer, Antwon Maxwell. Antwon Maxwell’s journey into photography began while traveling throughout Asia on a work assignment. Passionate about well, everything, Antwon utilized his drive to immerse himself in learning everything he could about photography. Shortly after beginning his photography journey, his skills advanced to the point that seasoned photographers were asking him for advice on lighting and retouching. During his time in South Korea, Antwon further honed his skills in posing, lighting, and retouching from having limited models, makeup artists, and wardrobe availability. In 2015, Antwon moved back to the United States with a full waiting list of clientele. Since his return, Antwon has shot several celebrities and his photographs have been featured in numerous magazines, including Kontrol Magazine; Hype Hair Magazine and Ellement Magazine. Antwon is known for his clean, sophisticated, and luxurious images accompanied by high-end retouching. His work has amassed him huge followings on both Instagram (@antwonmaxwellphotography) and YouTube (Antwon Maxwell Photography). Antwon has recently begun hosting workshops to share his knowledge and to support local photographers grow their skills. Antwon’s photography team includes himself, his wife, and his Canon 5D Mark iv. He currently resides in Washington, D.C. holding down a day job as an IT Specialist. Antwon plans to move to Los Angeles and pursue his photography dreams full time. In this episode Antwon shares how helping a friend with pictures for her blog blossomed into a love for photography and gives some advice to new photographers about what they should be focusing on when starting out. He also shares how shooting his shot landed him a job with one of his favorite celebrities which in turn led to many buzzworthy opportunities that have been non-stop. Antwon also talks about some of his must haves in his camera bag that most photographers underestimate and he shares what's next for his brand and so much more. Enjoy this episode!
