“Changing Lives With Just One Look.” was the motto and the idea of photography for Jermaine. Based out of Columbia, South Carolina and Fayetteville, North Carolina, his work was dedicated not only to making a difference within lives, but changing a community through the scope of a camera. One may say that accidents are needed to make a difference, and so was the case that inspired the concept and birth of the beginning of a vision in photography.
His work has been featured on local billboards, Cd & book covers to name a few. He continues to capture life principle through JL3 Brand, a Brand for HIS PURPOSE!
