Updated: Jan 3
Creativity doesn't come easy to to some and others it is like having another hand that can help them create anything. i see that when is see work from slight media. When scrolling through his Instagram page i see that he has captured the natural essence of people around him. You can also see an array of music videos he has worked on and his creativity is projected through his work, you can see that the attention to detail is apparent and controlled meticulously to show every aspect of his creative genius. When getting into a field like this one you can come in with great intentions or stumble upon it, and in this case this all started by accident for Aquil. The first time he shot a music video he had no interest, something clicked after seeing the creativity and art he published being recognized by people he looked up to. He decided to give back a piece of himself.
