Each week we feature a new photographer using Sony. Whether just starting out or long time enthusiasts, we want to discover those who dedicate themselves to the craft. Could you be our next feature?

Hi Dondre, Can you tell us what equipment do you use?
For professional work, I shoot with my Sony A7RII and primarily with my 35 1.4 lens.

Tell us about the process for the image above 
Me and the subject were walking when I had this idea to see him jump in front of this color block. His hat fell off mid-jump, so I when I was editing - I rotated the photo to create a falling perspective.

Do you pre-plan your photoshoots or are they more spontaneous?
All of my shoots have preparation behind them, whether figuring out location or creatively bouncing ideas via a moodboard. This allows me and the subject to create more smoothly knowing what we want the end goal to look like.

You work both with colour and Black and White imagery, is this decided in post-production, or do you shoot knowing the image will be colour or B&W?
I decide in post-production. Figuring which one of the two is usually spur of the moment.
