"I consider myself very fortunate to be included in the family of contributing artists for Black Enterprise Magazine, now going on 2.5 years. I'm truly blessed to have met and photographed the wonderful families, celebrities and top business professionals that Black Enterprise continually covers. When I was awarded the assignment to photograph Devin, I greatly appreciated his hard work coordinating the shoot and selecting and gaining permission for us to shoot at some of St. Louis' most interesting landmark locations. Devin came to the shoot fully engaged with his "game on", and we were able to produce extraordinary images for Black Enterprise Magazine that we can all be proud of. I certainly hope that all of my shoots go off as smoothly as our adventure in St. Louis did. Thank you again Devin," says Brett Kramer - Black Enterprise Contributing Photographer.
