Used to being in front of the camera, Debra Renee Seth enjoys switching roles to become the photographer. The Sumter, S.C., native and recent college grad is a freelance writer for Creative Loafing in addition to shooting nightlife photos for QC After Dark. As the first black account executive at WRHI AM 1340/FM 94.3 radio in Rock Hill, S.C., Seth adds the title of ambassador for the York County Chamber of Commerce to her already lengthy responsibilities.

What’s some of the most exciting aspects in shooting for QC After Dark?

Partying for free and getting paid to do it is always great, but meeting cool people is my favorite part about being a photographer. I tend to enjoy events that are sophisticated and laid-back, but working for QC After Dark has given me the chance to experience different types of nightlife I wouldn’t necessarily frequent, like Bass Church at Neighborhood Theatre.

How did your interest in photography develop?

As a child my father was always into photography and made my siblings and I take pictures to capture our memories. But it wasn’t until I began to study photography and video production in school that I enjoyed the craft. I learned how to frame, capture different angles and that it doesn’t matter the type of camera you use as long as you know the basics.

How do you become an ambassador for the York County Chamber of Commerce and what are your duties?

You can only get the position through a nomination from a committee member. I serve as a liaison for York County where I introduce business leaders to events and overall represent the chamber. My position is still new and I’m excited to see where things go because this is an honor.
