"Don't underestimate what you've come in contact with and how it can inspire you."

Tells us about yourself! Where are you from? What do you do? Why do you do it? 
My name is Aundre. I am 24. I am from Fort Lauderdale Florida. I am a creative associate at Walker and Co brands, but am better known as @aundre on Instagram.

What was it that drew you to 100cameras?
The people that were involved. They were passionate, strong, and unassuming. They listen so well, that's what set them apart. From Jayme, to Katie to Angela, strong people who knew that they were doing something in the world they believed in.

How has the power of storytelling impacted your life?
It's how I first started taking photos. 

Tell us one fun fact about you... go!
My mom is younger than me! She's a leap year baby.

What advice would you give to other artists and creatives that are hoping to live out their passions and change the world? 
Be patient. Seek counsel, but above all else, spend a lot of time with yourself. Don't underestimate what you've come in contact with and how it can inspire you.

What inspires you and your work?
The people in my life. They bring me joy, they share in my pain, they help me figure out how to communicate, and that's all my art is.

Tell us one tip of your trade.
Always study other artists work. As a photographer, always ask yourself, "Where is this light coming from?"

Do you have a favorite 100cameras project or photo? 
Easy: this one! India 4.

What are you passionate about?
Photography. NBA basketball and peanut butter.

If you could launch a 100cameras project anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Gainesville Florida. I went to college there and did this project called my Neighbors Project. I learned a lot about the community and I think its a great place to capture the openness of florida and it would give a lot of kids potential mentors in university art students.

What does being on the Board of Creatives mean to you?
First, it's an honor that you have allowed me to be on your board. Second, it means that I am lucky enough to use my work in a way that isn't self-serving.
