Glenford Nunez, 25, founder, Trust Your Photographer studio, Downtown
Glenford Nunez is as humble as his fashion photography is fierce. His portraits, which he creates at his downtown studio, are striking and bold -- often mysteriously beautiful. But he'd never tell you that.
" try not to take myself too seriously," he said with a laugh.
While he just started photographing two years ago and launched Trust Your Photographer this month, Nunez is already in high demand. He works with companies based in New York and Los Angeles, but shoots his models in Baltimore. Last fall, he was tapped to shoot New York Fashion Week for Pop Africana Magazine and is currently working on "The Coiffure Project," a coffee table book showcasing natural hair.
Nunez recently landed a large spread in a national magazine coming out next month (he isn't allowed to say which one). He maintains a steady schedule of four paid shoots a month and then devotes the rest of his time to personal projects.
"I remember even telling friends and family that I wanted to be a photographer in Baltimore and they'd tell me I was crazy, that there's no market," he said. "I just put faith in the industry to judge me by my work." -Jordan Bartel
