While the passion for photography was always there, other circumstances initially stood as obstacles.
“When I started out in college, I didn’t have anyone that looked like me, nor had the resources to get into photography,” he said.
However, Wolfe didn’t want to let those obstacles stop him.
Since the launch, Wolfe and his team have produced more than 500 projects.
For Wolfe, his photography and entrepreneurial venture serve a much greater purpose.
“My job is to focus on the city’s Black and brown photographers under the age of 30 and give them the resources they need in order to chase their dreams like I did,” he said.
More recently, Wolfe started a mentorship program focused on helping children of color break into the industry.
This can go a long way toward creating the kind of change in the industry he hopes to see.
