We had the good fortune of connecting with Mylene Cannon and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mylene, why did you pursue a creative career?
I always have ideas or I would see something that would spark my mind. Being a photographer gives me the ability to bring what’s in my mind to life so it becomes a visual. And gives everyone an idea of my creative process.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a photographer. When I do my photoshoot, I incorporate the person in every way possible. My main goal is to make the images last a long time because most likey, the pictures I take may end up on someones wall or photo gallery for a long time.

As an athlete, I set goals that I want to accomplish myself. My athletic career is more of what I want. It’s to prove to myself that I’m as great as I tell myself.

Working in sports stems from my athletic career. I know how much a big deal it is for athletes to be acknowledged for their accomplishments or to have the opportunity to just compete. On my end, I enjoy to make sure that’s possible.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’d take them to places that’s exclusive to Dallas and let them see what the city is all about. I always suggest Deep Ellum a lot. I feel like it’s a place that people can just do themselves and have fun. Of course, I’m always looking into places like Six Flags, virtual reality games, or even those colorful museums.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Everyone has supported me, invested into my life and career, and hasn’t given up on me. Those people know who they are. I’m a person that likes to do a lot, I don’t settle. I have many talents and things I like to pursue, so I go for it. My support team makes sure I’m able to attempt and accomplish those things.
