I'm Tyler, an 18 year old photographer and graphic designer from Lake Charles, Louisiana.
I became obsessed with photography at age 11 when I got my first (real) camera. I was always interested in how different photos could evoke specific emotions and feelings within viewers, and I so wanted to participate in that magic. At 13, I began to take this passion to a professional level by starting Tyler Simien Photo + Design, and have been creating ever since. I'm super blessed to call this my career, and I'm eternally grateful for every ounce of support.

I'm basically Beyoncé's personal assistant/play cousin/biggest fan, if you didn't already know. I'm fascinated with film cameras. I have a few polaroids and instax instant cameras which I L O V E, and I recently bought a Super 8 video camera that I am already obsessed with. I'm a huge procrastinator in everything but my business (because this is so much fun, why push it off?). My music taste is all over the place; I love old R&B, I listen to SZA and Solange daily, I always play Frank Ocean's albums from start to finish, and pop music is always a go to. I rarely finish a Netflix series (it took me months to finish the first season of Stranger Things). Reality TV is my favorite, and I'm a sucker for a good music documentary. But okay, that's it.
