Malcolm Manning is the epitome of making social media work for you! Only having tweeted that he is a photographer looking for work he was able to secure a client with one of the world’s most influential Black woman: Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey has a history of being generous and extending a helping hand with her supporters all across America. Whether it being as small as buying a supporter a new laptop to life changing events like hiring a Black photographer from an urban society.

The opportunities are endless for the aspiring photographer as his work speaks for itself.
