#ChromeHomie Dolly Avenue

September 22, 2017

Here at Chrome City we pride ourselves in having ultra-creative and inspiring homies throughout the Chicago area. Each week, the Chrome Chronicle will share a little bit about these incredible people and why we are excited to feature them as our #ChromeHomie.

Let us introduce our Homie, Dolly! 

 Dolly AvenueFreelance Photographer/Videographer & Content Creator for FCB Global 

 

Q: Explain your job position.

 

A: I freelance full-time in both photo and video. I am also in a two month program with FCB as a content creator. My position as a creative relies on capturing for clients in diverse environments. The body of work that I provide varies between music, fashion, commercial, branding, and event coverage. My work can be found at www.dollyave.com.

 

Q: What is your creative process?

 

A: The creative process for me is so challenging to pinpoint. My day can impact my work ethic but for the most part I shoot, edit, outreach, and post on a daily basis. I make sure to stay inspired by my surroundings and what I feed my brain! I enjoy reading and expanding my skill set if I have down-time.

 

Q: What inspires and motivates you?

 

A: I am and will always be inspired and motivated by people. At the end of the day what I create is meant to be shared and invoke emotion. When you mix art and passion you can create so much more than beautiful work - you can create community.

 

Q: How did you end up in Chicago?

 

A: I have my high school peer to thank. For some reason, the artistic path never crossed my mind. She questioned why I didn't consider art school since everything I dabbled in was on the creative side. I was in choir, worked on theater productions, designed graphics for class, and made artistic power-points when not necessary - so I made the move that changed my life.

 

Q: What is your favorite part of living in Chicago?

 

A: The culture. Hands down. I've traveled and seen the world at such a young age and there is still no scene quite like this city.

 

Q: What has most influenced your career?

 

A: The idea that I have the freedom to create what I see in my head as a reality.

 

Thanks for being a #ChromeHomie, Dolly!
