Tennessee-Based Brand Photographer & Pilot Elevating Brands Around the Country
I started HeyCJ Media in 2020 when I was furloughed from my job as a flight attendant. Desperate times pushed me out of complacency and right into a life and career I never could’ve imagined. Shortly after launching my business, I moved from Chicago to Scottsdale, Arizona, and decided to start flight school to become a pilot.
Now I’m back home in Tennessee, and in addition to running HeyCJ Media, I’m also a pilot, flight instructor, and content creator. When I’m not flying or running around my wooded backyard with my two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, I’m dreaming up creative ways to showcase my clients’ brands and making eye-catching videos for social media.
I built HeyCJ Media to serve brands an incredible, high-touch experience and help them turn their work into eye-catching art. I completed my bachelor’s in fine art in 2015 and have always desired to create impactful visuals. Serving brands has allowed me to do just that.
This isn’t your average photoshoot. We partner with commercial brands to plan, style, and thoughtfully create influential, magnetic visual media. The result is professional, on-trend photography and video for impactful marketing, with a custom & personalized touch.
