Savana starts using her mom's digital camera to shoot (bad) trendy photos for her Tumblr and Flickr accounts. She is obsessed with live music and sneaks her camera into shows (in her purse under LOTS of tampons to keep security from looking too hard).
Starting to experiment with mixed media, inspired by Rookie Magazine.
In college at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savana begins photographing queer performers, musicians, and dives into creating self portraits for her Identity Crisis series.
She is commissioned by Refinery29's former photo director, Toby Kaufmann (now a beloved mentor!) to shoot her first big editorial.
Savana moves cross country to Los Angeles from Atlanta with her bunny, Winter, where she makes work for clients like Time Magazine. She has heavily incorporated 2D animation into her repertoire as well!
Photos get moodier and moodier in hopes of achieving niche Flickr fame (never happened).
Savana starts contributing editorials monthly to Rookie Magazine, diving headfirst into combining collage and set design to create surrealist images.
She also begins shooting live music for online publications.
Savana starts shooting frequently on her trusty Mamiya RB67 (named Mamiya Thermopolis Renaldi, Princess of Genovia) because she loves the way the shutter sounds and the way her natural light portraits look on 120mm film.
Savana works her a** off on this amazing new website, and you're looking at it! Thank you, dear viewer, for reading this lightly self aggrandizing timeline!
