Last night, the 2015 Triumph Awards brought in the mega stars as they were honored for bringing a positive impact upon society. Amoung the honorees were Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, John Legend, Tyrese Gibson, Wanda Sykes, Rosalind Hudnell. The National Action Network (NAN) and Reverend Al Sharpton are partnering with TV One to present the first-ever television broadcast.
This time about 3 years ago… I was JUST starting as a professional photographer & blogger. I tagged along many different bloggers and did almost anything to get exposer… including A LOT of freebies. But it all paid off because NOW I’m able to pay it forward for someone else.
Meet Zaakirah Nayyar of Nayyar Photography who held down the forte for me at the red carpet while I’m on my family VaCAy! Kudos to you ma’am as you are a PHENOMINAL photographer. Thanks so much for an awesome job. 🙂
