Today we’d like to introduce you to Tatum Lewis.
Tatum, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I stem from a long line of creative females – an author, an art teacher, a home remodeler and a photographer, like me. I have been lucky to have such strong influencers in my life that have to lead me to start my own photography business in Atlanta.
I specialize in portrait and product photography, as well as, commercial film work. I am originally from Texas, so I love adding touches of my country roots into city settings to make a photo warmer and often more authentic.
A quick note about HONEY: It was named after my childhood nickname. Yes, unoriginal, but my younger brother legitimately thought that was my given name until he was about six. It might as well be on my birth certificate!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Living in a big city, it’s hard not to feel hushed among the noise. Finding my voice was a way that I was able to feel more confident in my work. It also was a gigantic help finding a network to connect you with other creatives in Atlanta who have so much to teach.
HONEY Photo + Video – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Portraits have always been my lifeline. Portraying a story through body language and expressions is all I could hope for. My aunt (Deana Levine Photography) was the first to introduce me to portraits when I was her assistant at her studio! At the time, she was a family and child photographer, so every day was something new and exciting. When I’ve captured raw emotion through someone’s eyes, I know I’ve done my job right.
My product photography experience came from merchandising as a Home Dept. Manager at Anthropologie at Ponce City Market. I slowly integrated into content photography for several social media accounts while working with BOFCreative. I love making each and every shot unique and well thought through for each individual client.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Having some of my photos of Allison James used for an article in Medium Magazine was a huge moment for me because it was the first time seeing my business in print!
