The guest for this episode is Detroit photographer Trilogy Beats, who has currently been out on the streets documenting the protests surrounding the Black Lives Matter civil right movement in and around Detroit, Michigan. He’s an acclaimed photographer with clients around the nation and globe, shooting for lifestyle brands and more. During our chat, we talked about his motivation to hit the streets with his camera to shoot what’s really going on during the current protests, and in particular, the protests that happened on July 10th at McNichols & San Juan in Detroit after the Detroit Police shot and killed Hakim Littleton. We also discuss his work as a photographer, how he broke into the industry, and how he was able to obtain clients.
