Raena Skyy Lannom Named Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign

The Arts & Business Council, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week’s featured artist is Raena Skyy Lannom!

Raena is a freelance photographer and videographer inspired by the metaphysical realm and dream world collectively surrounding us all.

Born in Memphis and raised in Knoxville, Raena knew from an early age that she wanted to spend the rest of her life creating films and photographs. Fueled by a childhood surrounded by artists, musicians and other creative people, she came to Nashville to earn her degree in Digital Film Making and Video Production at The Art Institute of Nashville.

After graduation she worked in restaurant service and was only able to pursue personal photography and video projects in her free time. But in March 2020 the pandemic ended her job, and she saw this as a message from the universe to step outside her comfort zone and begin a career doing something she loves.

“Working with creatively and spiritually like-minded individuals always helps the creative flow…I listen to my intuition for guidance.”

Photography and filmmaking go hand-in hand in her mind, and it is her intent to create photography with a cinematic feel. Her video work offers a nostalgic home-movie experience. Her clients are primarily musicians in need of music videos or visuals to bring their music to life. In the near future she would like to expand into narrative, short subject or feature films, and to photograph some of her favorite musicians and actors.
