HC: When did you discover your love for photography?

HK: This is sucha cliche answer, but I've always loved photography. Ever since I was 6 or so, I would use my parents cameras and dress my sister up and have a photo shoot. But, in high school the passion really blossomed as I figured out that I loved producing shoots even more.

 

HC: What is it about fashion photography that makes it your style of choice?

HK: I absolutely LOVE the costume and production of the whole event. I love how much planning and effort it takes to produce a fashion shoot.

 

HC: Are there any other creative aspects revolving around photography that you enjoy?

HK: I love directing! Collaborating, also! Working with other artists in their element is such a magical experience for me.

 

HC: What is the driving force behind your photography that makes you one of the most sought after photographers at SCAD?

HK: I think I just push myself to try new things. There's never a moment where I step back and think I can't do this.. I just go for it!

 

HC: How do you balance th heavy workload at SCAD and your own projects?

HK: I allow my personal life and school work to sort of blend together. I live in this world of art, school, and friends, and I never turn off my school mode.
