So this is what I'm thinking....
You are reading this because..
you or your company/organization need images done that tell the whole story..
you have creative ideas or a project that you want to put into action but you just need some help with strategizing and directing so that you can tell and sell your story.
you are a multi-passionate creative professional or artistprenuer and you want to maximize your creative offerings and hone your skills..
And, now you are in need of a guide to help you show and tell your most authentic story
This is where I step in.
As a multi-passionate creative, artist, and professional ideator, I UNDERSTAND the importance your visual and internal story being told to your desired audience.
I feel you.
I know how it feels when your story that is being told through your images and your creative and artistic offerings are not authentic.
They don't tell or show who you are. They don’t allow you to SHOW UP and be presented FULLY.
I'm Bessie, head creator in charge at Bessie Akuba Creative, LLC intuitively creating at the intersection of art, photography, communication, culture, and motherhood. I AND I'm here to help YOU tell and show your story
So, a little bit about me *lets get that out of the way ;)* I was born in Axim, Ghana and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. My passion is helping people tell their stories through imagery, words, education, and experiences. As a creative who is inspired by culture, travel, beauty, and the arts, I thrive on helping people connect with what moves them and turn what moves them into beautiful moments and opportunities.
In my past creative life, I've acted in regional theatre productions, independent films, did a few pageants, and sang in front of a few audiences. I also founded a non-profit organization that empowers young women to create their own media and provides scholarships and resources.
From Atlanta to Germany to Hawaii to Washington, D.C; I work with heart centered, creatively rebellious, culturally aware organizations, brands, artisans, and creative professionals who deliver their talents and gifts through multiple channels.
I step in to help the visually illustrate their story or fuse their multiple talents into one creative project.
Through my one on one creative strategy sessions, I give creatives practical guidance.
Together, we can make creative magic. That could be us…
