Quincy Coby, Photographer at Macro

Quincy Coby

New Orleans, LA
In December of 2005, a couple months after Hurricane Katrina, my mother purchased me an Olympus point and shoot camera for Christmas.

Mainly, my draw for photography was capturing the beauty in everything, and while Katrina left the coast decimated, there was still beauty in the chaos. Whether it was the landscape, or just capturing the moments where people got together to help rebuild, I was enthralled to tell a story through my eyes.

Fast forward to 2014, I started my college photography classes, and my fate was sealed. I decided from that point forth that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

Present day, I’m happy to say that I’m a professional photographer living the dream my 10 year old self crafted in his bedroom while scrolling through hundreds of blurry photos thinking he was the next Gordon Parks.

Today, I focus my photography on portraiture. Any and everyone is beautiful and deserves to have their beauty captured. I want to influence more diversity and inclusivity in the fashion industry, by creating captivating photos through working with a wide range of different individuals — especially those within the BIPOC and LGBTQ community. With that in mind, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity presented by Online Optimism. I couldn’t miss the chance to connect with a wide array of businesses, because this would significantly impact the reach and scope of my freelance work.
