1- Hello Casey, can you please tell us a bit about you?
I’m a 26-year-old Haitian American University of South Florida Alum. I graduated with a degree in mass communication. I’m a cancer and I love traveling. I have a deep passion for photography. I study it, read books, watch videos, do whatever I can to become better. Growing up most of my family was into music in one way or another. Dad was a drummer owned a record store so that probably explains why music is so crucial to me.
2- What are your focus areas and why?
Right now my focus areas are mostly photography. I want to get into more street photography and product photography. I want to get into street photography because I love the notion of always having your camera ready, seeing some back alley or skyscraper and knowing exactly how you want to frame something. It all seems so natural to more professional street photographers so I guess I want to be at that level someday. As far as products photography, I just want to shoot some of the brands that I love and get paid for it or have my work viewed by more creatives.
3-How do you describe your journey in few words?
Endless & Restless.
4- Where do you think your work is making an impact?
I’m actually not sure. Sometimes I think I’m making an impact on the community but most of the time I’m not sure if anyone even considers the effort of certain projects.
5- dedicating more time in a mission to spread the word about upcoming musicians, was it easy as it sounds?
Haha. Yes, and no. It’s like trying to build a bridge from one piece of land to another. Sometimes musicians show up and the pieces connect other times they don’t actually take themselves seriously enough for me to take them seriously. Just like any community, there’s drama and politics. I just wish everyone could see the other side and realize there’s no fucking way you’ll make it alone. Working together and a creating extremely phenomenal sounds is the only way we will reach aspirations in reality.
6- What the word “Assistance” means to you?
Assistance means helping for the outcome even if there is no personal gain.
7- Where do you see the “Casey Jeanite Media” in the next 5 years?
I hope to be booking the jobs I truly long for. Casey Jeanite Media should be the first company you consider when it comes to bringing your creations to visual life. I want Casey Jeanite to be its own machine with its own underlined culture. So 5 years from now I like to have a lofty office space operating in a bigger city with brands that mesh well with Casey Jeanite Media.
8- What can you tell young people who are pursuing their dreams?
Wake up hungry and go get yourself a plate. Also, stop comparing and start inspiring. Everyone’s chapters in life are a bit different so don’t beat yourself up for not “making it” yet like so and so did. Life is a marathon, develop your long game.
9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
I’m excited I get to release more prints and I’ll be traveling more this spring/summer so a lot of opportunities to network.
10- The last word or final thoughts?
Peace, love, & chicken grease.
