His education includes the School of Visual Arts and Parson School of Designs where his raw talent in writing, drawing and theatrical arts first astounded his teachers. He was awarded the Claudia Bronze Medal for Art and Design while attending William Howard Taft High School.
In 1996, Ja’Dee's passion for fashion influenced him to form the first all-black male modeling agency, B.M.E. (Black Male Enterprise), which rapidly grew into his full service agency, Tones Model Management. Ja’Dee's commitment and courage inspired and opened doors for many talented Afro and Latino Americans as well as other ethnic groups who seek a career in the fashion Industry. His motto: "Let no one tell you no to your dreams."
As a Photographer
Ja’Dee has been photographing for ten years and has become one of the newest seek-out fashion photographers in New York whose talents are also requested on the west coast.
Ja’Dee stated that he too is surprised at the dimensions that his photography has led him in such a short period of time. He has a fine love for fashion and beauty, and is still amazed how ones’ humanity can be captured in a split second, and that a single photo can fill you with emotions; this is what he seeks even as a fashion photographer – to bring emotions to those who view his work.
