Tyler Mitchell on his journey from making skate videos to shooting Beyoncé for Vogue

This past summer, Tyler Mitchell made history after being chosen to shoot Beyoncé for the cover of Vogue’s famed September Issue. Tyler is the first African-American photographer — and the youngest at 23 — to shoot the cover of Vogue in its 125-year history, marking it a moment to remember and a giant leap forward in an ongoing journey to improve diversity.

He recently dropped by the Canon Creator Lab at Free Space to discuss his journey as an artist and the rise of a new wave of photographers and creatives disrupting the commercial landscape and challenging the status quo.
