Gainesville native, Curtis Lawrence, has been awfully busy making waves in the entertainment industry. The celebrity photographer has had a career that has spanned over 13 years. A jock at heart, the eccentric businessman, found a passion for photography awakened in his teens. However, it wasn’t until the passing of his beloved mother that he experienced an awakening and was to embrace his true calling. The former U.S Army Airborne Paratrooper veteran found photography not only to be a release for himself but a spreading of joy for others.


Lawrence has photographed everything from weddings to portraits and even sporting events. He is a regular on the red carpet of major fashion shows, concerts, sporting events, celebrity photoshoots with Cocoa Brown and International Nova. In addition, Curtis is a proud mentor devoted to showcasing Black & Brown entrepreneurs. In his creation of Insight Photography, he can showcase his art and give platforms to others. His stunning and crisp shots are extraordinary and cannot be compared. The accomplishments Curtis has made have been nothing short of impressive.

These days, when he is not spending quality time with his family, he is imprinting on the streets of North Carolina. He lives by the quote “Faith don’t fail me now” to conquer his dreams and goals. Nothing is ever unattainable in his eyes when he stays true to his foundation. The Instagram account dedicated to Insight Photography gives viewers a look into him working in action. Behind the scenes, clips are featured, along with the finished results. He recently held Valentine’s Day photoshoot that featured models rich in melanin against an all-white background.


The mogul is happy to book your big events and weddings, creating memories for you and your loved ones to cherish until the end of time. You can catch up with him @insighphotographynkw  or
