GRLCST sits down with New Orleans Native Sammy Odell, who went from taking pictures on her phone to shooting at Jazz Fest, Preservation Hall, Civic, Republic NOLA, and many more iconic New Orleans venues. Finding her love for her photography while studying at Loyola University New Orleans and living with me in our uptown apartment, Sammy has found her niche and continues to trail blaze her own path to becoming the badass female photographer she's proving herself to be.
"I’d like to think of my photography as realistic and colorful, very urban and detail driven." Sammy told GRLCST as she answers what sets her a part from other photographers as well as describing her own individual personality, which is effortlessly reflected in her photos.
We talk the process of finding your passion, getting your foot in the door from the ground level, and how to navigate the male-dominated music and photography industry from the female perspective. Whether you're looking to get into this industry or need some tips on how to find your way into changing your passion into your 24/7 career, this is the episode for you. It's all about self-improvement, empowerment, and girls straight up supporting other talented driven girls in this episode. We couldn't be more proud to have this independent, Flaming Hot Cheetos enthusiast in our studio giving y'all the raw honesty on what it takes to quit your unfulfilling 9-5, stop fearing the "what ifs," and find your grind that'll one day give you those "Oh s**t, I made it" moments.
