For over a decade Shawn Brooks has created top-notch images that have accentuated celebrity marketing campaigns to the indelible ink of urban magazines such as Hip Hop Weekly and Pure Dope Magazine. An eclectic photographer, Shawn has photographed the everyday life of ordinary culture to prominent politicians, influential business moguls and celebrity clients.
Shawn Brooks, the celebrity photographer takes poetic license with every assignment from red carpet launches, celebrity photo shoots, strategic partnership branding and private engagements. One of the highlights of the year for Shawn is being the official photographer for TV One’s The Real McCoy and VH1’s Single Ladies star LisaRaye McCoy’s 3rd Annual Back 2 Business (B2B) Mix Down Weekend in St. Thomas and St. John Bay, US Virgin Islands (USVI). Shawn captured priceless moments of LisaRaye and her invited celebrity guests and performers such as Musiq Soulchild, Naughty By Nature, Luenell, Red Grant, comedienne Kiana Dancie, VH1’s Mob Wives Ramona Rizzo and Miss World U.S. Virgin Islands Esonica Veira.
Being bi-costal has its advantages- Shawn works in South Beach, Atlanta and Los Angeles throughout the year photographing clients from Pink Sky Boutique, Momma Dee of VH1’s Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta, celebrity make-up artist AJ Crimson, Honesty Jewelry, Hair Are Us, KMB Salon Systems, and world-renowned author YG Nyghtstorm just to name a few. His celebrity client list continues to grow all the while Shawn transforms his clients’ concepts and ideas from mere thoughts to provoking images through the camera’s eye
