“My name is Dumisani Maraire Jr., I’m a creator and developer of art, and I would like to be your next Headshot & Portrait Photographer.”
You’ve probably never heard of me, and that’s ok. Some people call me a ‘Celebrity Photographer’. But it’s not because I’m famous, it’s because of some of the famous people I’ve been blessed to work with in this and my other portfolios.
I just want to take some time to thank you for dropping by and checking out 321Headshots.com, the domain that is home to my headshot portfolio.
Over the past 5 years I have captured the images before you as the Owner & Lead Photographer of 321headshots.com, however I also own and operate SuperVlogs.com & RedCarpetSeries.com, which are my video production and event photography portfolios.
Before going off and creating Top Flyt Media, which owns 321Headshots, I spent almost 10 years in 5-star hospitality in Beverly Hills learning exactly what it means to provide world-class, luxury service to a very particular clientele and before that I worked for Delaware and Maryland’s local CBS affiliate, WBOC TV as a sports videographer, news studio camera operator and CG operator, which was the first photography related job I ever held back in 2002.
Collectively, I have over 12 years of experience working still and video cameras professionally in some capacity.
Of course, this wouldn’t be a Los Angeles photographer’s website without a good ‘ol dose of name drops! Through my multiple portfolios, I have been fortunate enough to work with a long list of celebrities including (alphabetically) Akon, B. Howard, Benzino, Bobby Brown, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Cat Zingano, Cee Lo Green, Chingy, Clipper Darrell, Dallas Austin, Dame Dash (Roc-A-Fella Records), Daniel Baldwin, Davido, Demrick, Dizzy Wright, DJ Skee, Donell Jones, Dustin Quick, Eva Longoria, Fia Johannsen, Floyd Mayweather Sr., Fredy Muks, Freeway Rick Ross, Jafaar Jackson, Jibrizy, Kathleen Bradley, Kym Whitley, LA Reid, Lloyd, LisaRaye McCoy, Meta World Peace, Michael Blackson, Montell Jordan, New Edition, Next, Omarion, Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg-Lippe, Shar Jackson, Sherri Shepherd, Stevie Williams (DGK), Suga Free, The Game, Thea Austin (of Snap!), Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins, Tipsy Bartender, Too Short, Twista, Vivica A. Fox, Warren G, Wesley Snipes & ZNi, just to name a few.
I am currently one of Hollywood’s go-to guys for premium event photography, vlog (video blog) creation, and, of course, portraits and head shots.
I have served as Director of Photography for numerous productions including The Fixxx Audiocast on Dash Radio in Hollywood, The Jenny SuShe Show on Roku TV, Straight Out Tha Trunk on Accelerated Radio and The Reality Show LA, also on Accelerated Radio.
I have also created original online video and photography content for brands and corporations such as Kiss The Monkeys, Providence St. Joseph Hospital, The Well Being Trust, Lally Medical Group, All Access Broadcasting, Primerica, The Samira Network, Affinity Nightlife, Assuaged, The HAPAwards, and so many more.
Sometimes I work with a team, and sometimes I work solo, but whatever the case, I always have a ‘get it done’ attitude. It’s not rare to see me balancing cameras, remote flashes, diffusers, lights and reflectors as my intention is to always provide exquisite service and literally roll out the red carpet for my cherished clients and give them the 5-star service they deserve.
In my life there is absolutely no substitute for high quality and artistic freedom and so I’m extremely grateful that you’ve taken some time out to scroll through this limited selection of my extensive portfolio.
See you in the studio.
