We had the good fortune of connecting with Queen Tut and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Queen Tut, why did you pursue a creative career?
To better understand me, I came from a Haitian Artistic Family. I knew at the beginning that an artistic career was inevitable. I chose to become an artist; a photographer to be exact. I absolutely love everything about capturing a story through my lens. To pursue it was too easy. Once I saw how my first model cried because she saw her beauty in the photos I took of her; that commenced my professional photography career. Besides, you want your career to always be fun, right? I knew that establishing a career in Photography would promise the longevity of a Creative mindset.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art in photography displays not only the beauty of my clients, but it tells a story. I create photographs that inspire and boost my client’s confidence. What sets me apart from others is that I genuinely photograph to make people happy. When my clients see themselves they are so shocked to see how I see them through my lens. They see their beauty. Sometimes people need to see how awesome they are! What I’m most excited about is the amazing art that I will create! I evolve from every session. I can’t wait to see people’s jaw drop with future projects! I got to where I am today professionally by believing in myself. If I never believed in myself I wouldn’t have picked up a camera. It wasn’t easy. There were times where I didn’t have confidence in my art, but I pushed through. I overcame it by envisioning my goals in photography. To see my art hanging in a gallery somewhere… That really gave me the drive! One lesson that I’ve learned was to always be willing to learn from others. No matter what status you or the other person is. There’s always something to learn! What I want the world to know about Queen Tut Photography is that I am here to make you see yourself. My photoshoots are much more than photos. It’s about self-love. Rewarding yourself by expressing yourself and seeing the outcome of it. It’s always so beautiful.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I absolutely love Hiking! I would definitely take them to see the beautiful waterfall at Tallulah Gorge, Panther Falls, and Sweetwater Park. Those places are amazing and a great workout too! I would definitely take them to the LEAF martial arts Tournaments; great action and great people there.
