My name is Doreen Pierre and I am a 26 year old Brooklyn based creative!


Creative Content Production

3 years ago I picked up my first DSLR and haven't put it down since! I started out in photography and have built my way up to video, editing, and creating engaging marketing materials. I have experience in many areas including events, parties, engagements, and weddings. I’m really passionate about documenting the lives of people, particularly, queer people of color because you rarely see that in the larger narrative. 


As a recent college graduate,coming into themselves as a queer dapper woman, I saw limited resources online for people who looked like me and had a dollar and a dream for what they could afford. Hence the moniker, DapperPenniless! Years later this tiny flame has grown into a wild fire. I've been featured on Buzzfeed, Autostraddle, Kirrin Finch, DapperQ and other publications! My aim is to share my fashion journey gems with you.
