New Vision Philly with Haamza Edwards

Brothers and sisters, I can’t tell you how happy I am to feature my man Haamza Edwards in this edition of OnBlast!  Haamza has been looking deep in Philly for quite a while so I’m so pleased that he’s decided to share some of his work and insights.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing more as the years go on…

Abundant in art of all kinds, Philadelphia is full of positive energy to fuel my passion of photography. Having a standard of how I want my pictures to turn out, they always instill the emotion I was capturing into the audience.

I started shooting with a camera phone and never imagined that I would receive so much praise for my pictures. Knowing that people enjoyed my work was more than enough inspiration to keep me going. At the time, I didn’t have a clear set method or style. If I recall correctly, I think my exact thoughts were, “Shoot anything that looks cool!” And it served me well…mostly. As time passed, I saw a pattern in my in my shots and I immediately felt like I accomplished something amazing. I then considered myself a photographer.

To this day, following the trail of street art with graffiti, dancing, music, martial arts, and even other photographers and videographers has given me a vast horizon of endless photos just waiting to be taken. Not much more to say other than, I love photography.
