Fashion Photographer, Drexina Nelson

Creativity Oozes from Drexina Nelson

Drexina Nelson has the kind of creative talent that oozes from her pores. You know the kind you must be blessed to be born with? It can’t be learned, taught or practiced; it’s in her heart, and it drives her existence. A week or so before her BrandistaTV interview, I caught the brandista as she had just finished an amazingly beautiful painting. Cheer brilliance,  all raw, natural and self-taught (or God- given) talent.  Unquestionably, Drexina has the ‘it factor’ for talent. Day after day, she chooses  to express her gift through the lens of her camera.  I know she would be incredible at whatever artistic endeavors she pursues, but I, along with countless others are very happy she choose photography. Her work is inspirational, and timeless. Lending itself to thousands of fans admiring for a distance + waiting for the opportunity to be on the other side of those lens.

Drexina Nelson’s Atlanta Photography Studio

On top of her creative brilliance, Drexina’s studio is filled a creativity energy and zen. There’s no place I’ve been to that’s quite like it. Whether you’re interested in getting glam for the day by her in-house glam squad at The Society Salon, or being captured from her lens: the experience is first class.  Over the years I’ve come to love her creative spirit, her humility and how she’s takes immense pride in perfecting her craft.

During our latest chat, we chopped it up about her start in the photography business, her first clients, and journey through her businesses evolving at, The Society Salon and DN Productions. The brandista goes on to give us insight into her own personal brand, and that crazy -sexy shoe game of hers.
