Sharon Coker’s career as a photographer began nine years ago when she booked her first wedding. Since then, the Flowood native has made Jackson the place for her business.

“My style of work is a little bit different than most photographers in our area, so I feel like the people in Jackson embrace it more than the people in Rankin County,” Coker says.

“Jackson is art-centric.”

Most of the work Coker does are portraits. She calls her art “free, colorful and a way to tell a story about the person.” She works primarily with local models but also does professional style shoots for people’s personal use.

“When you take photos with a camera, normally everyone is cheesing, smiling, but for some reason when I get them in front of my camera, I can make them open up and show something they wouldn’t normally show people,” Coker says.

Whether for modeling agencies or simply more artistic portraits, Coker believes there’s an opening in the Jackson area that she works to fill with her photography.—Alexis Ware
