Beyond the Lens with CloudNai

This past March, I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing Nailah Howze, better known as “CloudNai,”—a notable LA-based photographer, producer, and founder of Face2Face Media. Known for capturing the black community in its purest form, CloudNai’s impeccable photography allows her diverse clientele to embrace their individualism beyond their limits. CloudNai is a breath of fresh air, openly down to earth, and easily the one you want in your corner for all things creative-driven. I spoke with Nailah on her remarkable journey to success, inspirations for capturing black art and culture, and future career goals.

I genuinely enjoyed my time chatting with Nailah and was greatly inspired by her words of wisdom. My goal for anyone watching this interview is to remain encouraged and inspired to achieve your dreams. “The sun and moon both shine, just at different times—there’s room for everyone.” – CloudNai

Enter Stage 6: Cloudnai

Our last ART BISH profile is Bay Area photographer, Cloudnai. Working with big names like Nipsey Hussle, A$AP Rocky, and Post Malone, the artist has solidified her name in the game. But whatโ€™s more important is her mission to representing the underrepresented. Highlighting black bodies, black hair, and the black experience, her art depicts the reality and beauty in being comfortable as the underdog.

When sheโ€™s not capturing intimate moments, she is the founder of Face2Face Media, a platform centered around networking with creators from all walks of life. Nailah Howze provides a place where the unheard can shout.


And thatโ€™s a wrap for our ART BISH profiles, BUT you can learn even more at the upcoming ART BISH Digital Festival, next Wednesday (Sept. 30th) at 5PM PST//8PM EST.
