"Photography is pure luck". These are the words that Bakr Russell will use to describe how he fell into the profession of photography. Originally from Newark, NJ the "hustlers mantality" has always driven Bakr to strive for more. After moving to Durham, NC in 2005 and graduating from Hillside High in 2006, Bakr decided to take a break from school and reevaluate his life. This is where he found his fasination in photography.

From 2006 till 2010 Bakr was taken under the wing of Tony Hank, one of NC top photographers, where he learned all the tips and tricks of the trade. Late 2010 Bakr ventured off and created his own photography brand, TDP Photos, as well as started attening North Carolina Central University where he is currently pursing a degree in criminal justice.
