“I try to stay true to myself; and what separates me is my willpower. I don’t sleep.”
Freedom is seldom given freely, it is taken by those hungry enough to go after it. Such can be said for multitalented creative , Patrick Neree, a man who evokes emotion through sheer will and effort. The Queens, New York, native quit his full time job to fulfill his destiny as an energetic visionary who redefines just what it means to capture life behind a lens.
Aware that there are a lack of positive black role models for our youth, Neree breaks through the static by remaining accessible. “I think by displaying a positive message and producing consistent work, it shows those interested that anything is possible,” he says. Having grown into a man with something more than just connections and social media likes to offer, he has emboldened his followers and mentees to not only take the leap, but to enjoy the risk, and showcase the rewards. Never afraid of the pressure of taking the big shot.
