Exploring Life & Business with Niyah Chanel of Shotsbyniyah

Today we’d like to introduce you to Niyah Chanel.

Hi Niyah, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
It all started back when I was a freshman in high school. I was always into taking pictures of family and friends and my pictures that I would take everybody would love them. I knew a lot about compositions and lighting. I ended up getting my first Sony camera in 2016 for Christmas. I really didn’t think I was too much into being a photographer I felt like I had enough time to see what I really wanted to be when I grow up. Years later, I am now 22 I moved to Atlanta. Been here for a year now and started doing photography in April of 2021. I am looking forward to going back to college to take courses for mass productions so that I am able to learn more about videos and photography.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I feel as if it’s easy to pick up a camera and take pictures, but as in learning the basics and knowing real photography no it’s really a lot to learn. Some of my struggles along the way is lighting that’s my big issue. Your lighting in your pictures just has to be perfect or your picture wouldn’t be its best.

We’ve been impressed with Shotsbyniyah, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
For starters, the most important factor about me I think you guys should know is that I am very unique. I always think outside the box even as far as taking my pictures at certain locations and certain backgrounds, I know that certain areas and certain backgrounds go together with certain pictures. My pictures are very detailed and clear. I try to not edit it as much so that I can give my pictures more of a clear clean look.

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
People can reach out to me on my social media via email or Instagram. I am always interested In networking and collaborating with new people.
