Dre'moant

With his first gaze through the viewfinder of a Kodak 110 camera at the age of five, Dre'moant knew he could see the world in a light unlike he'd ever seen before. As a native of Independence Heights in Houston, Texas his surroundings supplied him with a multitude of opportunities to capture life, loss and love on film. The gift to take an image of everyday life and turn it into a new, refreshing one. Recording images of his surroundings became a common occurrence.

After high school Dre'moant became a professional photographer with the CPI Corporation based in St' Louis, Missouri. For the three years with them he honed his skills with everything from new born photography to family portraiture. In 2011 he worked as an engineer at NASA's Johnson Space Center on the High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment that is now housed aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The experiment was activated April 30, 2014.  It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the Earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing.

After his studies at the world renowned New York Institute of Photography and over 20 years of experience under his belt, he now owns and operates a photography service where he continues to do what gives him joy......share the Visions by Dre'moant with the world!

At first I wasn’t sure that I had the talent, but I did know I had a fear of failure, and that fear compelled me to fight off anything that might abet it.
