Toni Dubois – Photo by Chris Williams

As far back as she could remember, Toni Dubois had a love for the arts. Born in the Caribbean to Haitian parents and raised between Florida and New York, Toni’s life experiences led her down a path of media, content creation and visual arts, which led her to the realization that photography would be her outlet. Today, Toni is a gifted photojournalist who has contributed her photos and articles to the Caribbean Life Newspaper and Jamaica Gleaner and currently shoots for WhereItzAt and Vibe.com.  Toni uses her lens the way an artist uses the brush. Her photos tell a story. You will hardly ever get the same look twice and she takes the time to study her subject before shooting.

Toni’s passion has taken her around the globe. She has shot in Morocco, South Africa, Amsterdam, Grenada, Haiti, Turkey, and Paris, to name a few. Some of her work included photographing soul, hip-hop & reggae artists, namely Lauryn Hill, Raphael Saadiq, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Rakim, Shaggy, Beres Hammond, Third World, The Wailers & Ky-mani Marley, but her work and interests span diverse subject matters.  Her work has appeared in print media in Uptown Magazine, and digitally on Vibe.com, tastyclips.com, king.com, and the theindustrycosign.com.  Toni’s photography was also showcased on the CD cover for the Cornerstone Mixtape Campaign –featuring DJ Premier and DJ Wonder.  Toni’s diversified photographic & journalistic subjects span across various mediums such as fashion, entertainment, and human interest.

I Do Haiti Shoot – Photo by Toni Dubois

Most recently Toni served as Creative director and one of the photographers for an exclusive style shoot for @idohaiti photos, which was shot on location in Haiti and featured in Munaluchi Bride Magazine, a prominent multicultural magazine and marketplace. When asked to name some of her most recent fun and exciting gigs and why, Toni mentioned her coverage of Yo MTV Raps 30th anniversary at Barclays Center for Vibe.com and her coverage of the Catch a Fire Tour, featuring Bob Marley’s sons Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Stephen “Ragga” Marley and the prominent family band Morgan Heritage. “I got a chance to shoot some of the people I grew up listening to, people who make music that inspire and uplift me and was able to relive some amazing memories through the music and stories being told. The only thing better would have been getting it all on video too.”

Constantly working on new projects, Toni is preparing for an exhibition of her photos scheduled to be displayed in March of 2020, at a soon to be disclosed Brooklyn location, while continuing to tell stories through her lens. Follow Toni on Instagram @tonidubois.
