Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Shields is the son of Jerry and Martha Shields. His career started a at a young age when he started skating. He participated in the 1999 and 2000 X Games and even toured with pro skater and icon Tony Hawk. He became known in the skating circuit for participating in various competitions as an inline skater. His early years as a skater helped start his career and net worth.

Shields decided to leave the skating world and shifted into photography. He started posting his work on MySpace, and later on he began doing exhibits and gallery shows. Some of his solo exhibitions are featured in Miller Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio; Imitate Modern in London, England; Samuel Lynne Gallery in Dallas, Texas; Andrew Weiss Gallery in Santa Monica, California; and Guy Hepner Gallery in Los Angeles, California which is quite a CV, and the success of his works has tremendously increased his wealth.

Aside from his exhibits, Shields has also written photographic books; his first was “4by5” released in 2006, and his second “The Dirty Side of Glamour”, released in November 2003 published by Dey Street Books. His most recent book is entitled “Provocateur”, published in January 2017. Some of his works are also featured in magazines, and the success of both have also helped in his career and net worth.

Some of Shields’ most memorable and controversial works are often criticized because of their violent themes. His work with Lindsay Lohan flaunting a gun and his photo shoot with actress Heather Morris from “Glee” sporting a bruised eye was criticized for promoting violence and abuse of women; he even received death threats because of his works, for which he later apologized.

Aside from photography, Shields also dove into the world of film making, and has two movies under his belt. His first movie entitled “The Wild Ones” was released in 2014, and his second movie “Final Girl” starring Abigail Breslin, was released in 2015.

Today, Shields is still active as a photographer and filmmaker. His recent photo shoot with comedian Kathy Griffin holding a bloody head that looks like the U.S. President Donald Trump recently received flack for its violence tones.

In terms of his personal life, Shields is still apparently single, with not even a rumour of romantic assiciations.
