Gaston - Loyd

I'm Whitney Gaston-Loyd, a Shreveport native with a knack for storytelling and an eagle eye.  I attended Southwood High School where I became a state champion and received All-State and All-Area recognition for girls' basketball.  I was also a 4-year member of the Cowboy Marching Band. After High School, I earned my bachelor's degree in Multimedia Journalism from the Historic Grambling State University.  That was when I truly uncovered my love for bringing stories to life through motion picture.  In addition to cinematography, I also enjoy writing/listening to music, watching films, taking Polaroids, looking at clouds and eating tacos.

My name is Josh Warren. My love for film began with a Spike Lee joint entitled , “He Got Game”. In my spare time, I often use a camera. However, when I am not doing camera work I am participating in hobbies or spending time with family. Mental and physical wellness are extremely important to me so my hobbies include: jiu jitsu, weightlifting, running, video games and writing music. I am married and have twin daughters who are almost a year old. My happiest moments are spent with my three ladies. My motto is that of my church, and that is to love God and love people. To summarize me as a human being is simple. I am a man of God, my Family and the Arts.
