I am born and raised in Oakland, CA and I go by Nas for short. I started doing freelance photography and created my own freelance business over two years ago. I run Photos by Nas, through social media where people contact me to take pictures for birthday's, proms, graduations, assist starting up their portfolios and more. I started Photos by Nas because I felt photos have always been an integral part of history and the admiration was fading. As an artist, I began to appreciate photography because it has allowed me to show others my perspective of the world and allow me to tell stories through the moments I capture. Another reason why I became a photographer is to show people of my generation that we can do anything to be successful and not limit ourselves. I use the tag line "Nas Meets World" because I am sharing my perspective of the world with my audience.
