Photographers are people that capture cool photos for a living. Yeah right! We wish! Being a photographer is a complex job. We are problem solvers, we are time stoppers, and most of all we are entrepreneurs risking everything it takes to pursue our dream.
Having photography equipment is one of the things that make us a "photographer" but there is so much more that define us as Professionals.
What It Means To Be a Photographer
We are Problem Solvers: When our client books us for their wedding, and its raining outside? What do we do? We solve the problem! We are artists and problem solvers all in one. We make it work to make our clients happy! Whether it's changing the location we're shooting, having them dance in the rain, or taking an EPIC shot of them in the rain under an umbrella.
We are Time Stoppers: When our client wants us to capture their most beloved day. What do we do? We stop time! With each and every photograph, we take the split second of that very moment. Giving the client the opportunity to view those photographs years down the road.
We are Magicians: When our client feels uncomfortable about his/her weight (yes it happens). What do we do? We take the photographs in the most unique angles that can reduce your size. We can adjust specific lighting techniques to cast shadows in undesired areas... And not to mention- Legit Photoshop skills.
- We are Entrepreneurs: We are business people. We have expenses, we make profit and we sell products to our clients to preserve their memories. We hustle. We hustle hard. We are risk takers. We are passion seekers. We are the artist behind the camera with the perfect mix of a business mind set.
