We caught up with rising videographer to discuss his take on culture, the pros & cons of directing, favorite moments and more. \n\n\n\n\n\n\nYeah I know, but no I’m originally from Buffalo New York, I moved to Texas in like 2011. \n\n\n\nI started back in summer 2021. One day my bros was like you should started shooting videos and I was like, yeah I should start shooting videos. It’s crazy, cuz like when I first started, bro I was really outside. I’m talking any show, event, all that… I was there. So about 2 years now. \n\n\n\nIf you’re really passionate about it, you’ll get to experience real-new experiences, because nothing is really the same, you get to travel, you know experience different things in life. You’re definitely very versatile with business as well, that’s a must. As far as cons, you can have like multiple jobs at once. You can go from being a videographer to A&r, to a social media manger \/ photographer at the same time, so it’s just a lot to do as a director. But you gotta be real comfortable tho, I mean I love what I do, so its like alright let me just challenge myself at the end of the day; see what I can do and make an impact in. \n\n\n\nYeah man I’ve worked with Juicy J, Rae Sremmurd, Maxo Kream, NoCap, GBaby, Big Yavo, BigXthaplug, SSG Kobe, and Lil Migo. But King Cid was my favorite person to work with. I’ve worked with him like three times, and man that man had me living lavish. Bro took care of everything and made sure I was good. He real genuine, great vibes, just and awesome person to work with. \n\n\n\nIm hoping to throw my first music festival in Dallas by the end of 2024, you know have something for everybody, with artists that I think got something, vendors; if you selling something or whatever, Ima be like come on. Kind of like how Cole Bennett did for Chicago with Lyrical Lemonade but for Dallas. Every year, just networking, at this big event. \n\n\n\n\n\nKam’s pioneering spirit and commitment to his craft have revolutionized the music video landscape in Dallas.
