Gavin Boulware is hosting a Photo Walk event in Uptown Charlotte this weekend



Photographer and Paid in Exposure Podcast host, Gavin Boulware, is hosting a Photo Walk event in Uptown Charlotte to provide mentorship opportunities and resources to creatives in the Charlotte area. This event will encourage creatives to embrace their individuality and develop self esteem, and raise awareness for International Albinism Day.


The United Nations declared June 13th as International Albinism Awareness Day to promote and protect the rights of individuals living with albinism. Across the world, individuals with Albinism are dealing with both ordinary and life threatening obstacles and prejudices. Charlotte-based photographer and Host/Creator of the Paid in Exposure Podcast Gavin Boulware has used the lessons he’s learned and challenges he has overcome as a Black creative who has dealt with Albinism throughout his life to mentor and create safe havens for introverted photographers, especially those of color. This summer, Boulware will cultivate awareness about Albinism through special mentorship opportunities, a podcast episode and events, including the second annual Uptown Charlotte Photo Walk that will also take place on Sunday, June 13th.


Boulware started the Photo Walk event last year in order to provide a fun and interactive resource for photographers to enhance their skills, grow their business and most importantly, learn how to embrace their uniqueness and use it to enhance their craft. At this year’s Photo Walk event, participants will be able to receive one-on-one instructions on posing, lighting techniques and composition, shadow Boulware as he works with professional models and conducts a photoshoot and learn how to cut your photoshoot time in half with interactive workshops.


"Early on in my life, I was taught to love myself unconditionally. Being an artist isn't the most glamorous job. The pay isn't always life changing. Some go a lifetime without being recognized and the battle with anxiety can be unbelievable. However once you walk through the doors of self love, everything changes. I strive to teach that weekly and I pray it makes a difference,” says Boulware.


The Paid in Exposure Podcast also release a podcast episode on June 11th to discuss his experiences coping with discrimination and bullying and encouraging photographers to embrace their individuality and express their self love in art. This episode will also feature interviews with professional models and photographers to discuss how they overcame anxiety and insecurities to become high-performing professionals in their fields.


Boulware started the Paid in Exposure Photography Podcast, Charlotte's only photography podcast catered to Black and Brown Photographers, in the fall of 2019 as a space for entertainment where photographers could share experiences of their day-to-day journeys as creatives of color. New episodes are released weekly on each Friday.

对于许多非英语母语的留学生而言,用英语进行学术写作是一项艰巨的任务。尽管他们可能在日常交流中已经具备了一定的英语能力,但学术写作要求更加严谨的语言规范和逻辑结构。语言障碍不仅影响他们准确表达自己的观点,还会影响他们对复杂学术材料的理解和分析。留学生作业代写服务提供的专业写手通常是以英语为母语或具有高级英语写作能力的学者,他们能够根据留学生的需求和指导要求,撰写出高质量的学术论文。这不仅帮助留学生克服语言障碍,还能让他们有机会学习和借鉴优秀的写作技巧,从而逐步提高自己的写作水平。
