Explore What Motivates CoopGetDaCamera, His Red Flag suggestions to Models, as well as His Advice for Aspiring Photographers & Videographers
CoopGetDaCamera is based in Atlanta. Nevertheless, he was born in California. Initially, he was in school for Audio. After one of his teachers suggested he look into videography- he says it became the best part of studying. He mentions graduating AIU in Media Broadcasting.
CoopGetDaCamera met Gutta TV (a successful Vlogger) while staying in an apartment complex during school. Gutta TV currently features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Artists such as J Money, Migos, Kodak Black, Blac Youngsta, and Lil Phat. Gutta TV started out in the DVD era.
CoopGetDaCamera’s first gig was an opportunity to film in a club. He was filming during Yo Gotti’s appearance. He admitted that he was winging it. Yo Gotti kept looking at him in confusion. He’d thought being behind the camera was easier. Then, those that were with him began to joke on him for “filming everybody BUT the stars”. Additionally, he said he’d mostly been recording the women in the club. Although it was then that he knew he was going to be a videographer.
Ultimately, he says he was motivated to get into the visual arena by a suggestion from his Instructor. He tried it and loves it. He loves being able to capture moments with his ‘memory machine’.
CoopGetDaCamera especially enjoys being able to provide a quality fresh in-the-moment finished product. Listen below.

“Keep working”, he says.
He balances his work and personal life by doing just that. He also enjoys traveling to spend time with his family. However, he mostly works.
He goes on to describe his style of shooting as being a ‘guerilla shooter’. Being a guerilla shooter means that he will get out and go to all lengths to create the best keepsake of your special memories. New best friend? He will be your self-declared- and proven- “human crane” and “human drone”. He has been a guerilla shooter for the past three years.
