Emmanuel Figaro

Hello! I'm a photographer and videographer based in Asheville, NC.  I studied New Media and Photography at the University of North Carolina Asheville. My creative tools of choice are a camera and computer.  I enjoy creating portraits of other people and filming videos that visually inspire others.  I also love to laugh and incorporate humor into many of my projects.
