We had the good fortune of connecting with James Camp-Woods and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi James, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success and future success is being perculiar. The world has a way of persuading individuals into comforming to the normalization of stigmas and stereotypes. The truth is, be yourself and love being the person you are meant to be.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My artistry is through Creative Content Creation and styling. Anyone who knows me, know that I am constantly in my mind thinking of the next shoot idea, the next outfit to put together for a client, or soley thinking about the future. My peculiar eye for capturing concepts is what sets me apart from other individuals and my true passion for creativity. A strong team built from faith, support, and love is what got me here today and I’m so thankful for everyone who has helped me along the way. Truly thankful for God and my team [Tayla &Azjah]. I also want to thank [Oneshotjohn, Maegan MUA, Megan, Tatyanna, Troy, Jayla, Destiny, Tasia, Fiya Niya, Timothy] and a few others, but these individuals allowed me to create with them and do what I love. I overcome all my challenges through faith and prayer, constant prayer. I have learned along the way to stay grounded in faith, love what you do, and create a strong team with a solid foundation. I want the world to know my mind is out of this planet and to never box me in.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some really dope places to visit in Atlanta are Little Five Points, Krog Street, The High Museum, Bontanical Gardens, Cascade Skating Rink, to name a few. Great food place to go visit are The Vortex, Treehouse, Highland Bakery, Fugo De Chao, and Slutty Vegan.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
For my shoutout I would like to acknowledge every soul that supports me in and out.
