Artist: Tyson Gore
Company: Gore-geous Shots Photography
So, let's jump right in; what makes you so passionate about photography?
"I enjoy my opportunities to express myself artistically. People say that a picture is worth 1000 words so I use photography to communicate with my audience in a sense."
What separates your work from others?
" I try to tell stories with my work. I want to stir an emotion when people see it. "
How did you initially get into photography?
"My father was a photographer. When it was time for him to upgrade his camera, he asked if I wanted it. I said yes, bought it from him and that is how it all started. I attended family functions and events, asked if i could take photos as practice. My family was/is very supportive and that really helped me while getting my start and growing my talent.
From there I was able to book jobs and save money for equipment. I built myself artistically while I gathered the tools I needed to allow myself better quality shots."

Do you travel for work usually?
"Traveling is no problem at all. I do quite a bit actually.
What is something people don't know about you?
"Ha, I'm an introvert. I'm not big on the whole social aspect of my field of work. So that is really where I use photography to communicate with my audience, my work speaks for its self. Its a collaboration that sometimes builds on itself, my art, the models interpretation, the designers, location, hair & makeup. We are a group of artist coming together and creating to tell a story."
If you had to choose, what would be your dream shoot?
"I'd love to do a fashion editorial shoot. Something more high fashion, on a beach with the gowns, at sunset, you know."
Have you ever thought of film?
"Yeah, I have a huge interest in film. I actually would like to create a short film in the future and see how that goes."
Is there anything that you want people to know about you?
" Yeah. This is for love, it is love, its art..... I'm living my dream. Photography is not a job for me, it my passion! Before, I was just existing; going thru life like a robot. Now I'm living, I'm alive! Seeing your hard work, practice and dedication payoff is a rewarding feeling."

What keeps you such a humble person?
"Well honesty, I know that there are others in my field that are more experienced than I am, better. I understand that I am still climbing, I'm not the best yet but the best is my goal. I am still learning."
Are you working on any new projects?
" At the moment I'm working on getting published. I'm constantly looking to collaborate with other artists to expand into bigger networks professionally and just growing.”
One of your goals?
" I'd love to work with TIME Magazine or like GQ someday."
I met Tyson some time ago and I have had the pleasure to have worked along side him on a photo shoot or two now. I have seen the quality of his work grow and can only expect to see him make great strides in his career as a photographer in this industry. We will be sure to catch up with Tyson in the future and see what hes up to.
