Gant Studio connects my creative practice with community through documentary and portrait photography services, art commissions, print media, workshops, and curated experiences.

I have over 8 years in the creative industry, working from conception to management of projects, productions, and publications. I am interested in work that is bigger than a brand, work that drives movements, and clients who are active collaborators.
