Toni Payne is a Still Life and Documentary Photographer, Founder of the Champayner Social Club and Host of the NFT Talk Show Podcast. She is also an NFT Educator and Consultant.
Her visual art style is centered around Still Life where she enjoys creating beautiful things out of the mundane around topics like growth, love, fruitfulness, abundance and spirituality. She also has a passion for Documentary Photography where she documents people and wildlife going about their day-to-day life.
Photography to her has always been about freezing moments in time. It is that one special art form that captures the essence of a person, place, or thing as it was in that moment. She believes that every photographer is a documentary photographer because they can document moments as they happen. She feels that even if they are planned moments, they are still part of a story.
Being a creative who does not limit herself because she believes your creativity is an extension of who you are, she also enjoys creative writing short stories and expressing herself using written and spoken word poetry.
Her educational background is also centered around the arts. She studied Video and Digital Art, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in the Arts. Her background in Film Production, Public Relations, and Music Management has been helpful in propelling different aspects of her career.
She is passionate about educating people about NFTs as well and helping brands propel themselves and find success in NFTs. She is also bullish on community. This is why she founded the Champayner Social Club, an NFT Art collectors club centered around her art and doing social good.
Her hobbies include traveling, bird watching, and learning about different cultures. She is a self-professed foodie who loves to try new cuisine and of course, document them using beautiful photographic images.
