Tell us a bit about yourself and your company
I’ve been in love with photography for as long as I can remember. I anxiously waited for my mother to develop the film rolls we took on our trips when I was a kid. After I got my first digital point-and-shoot back in 2002, I never left my house without it. I became the annoying friend who would take photos of everything and everyone all the time!
I realized just how much I enjoyed the art of photography during high school when I developed my first photo in our tiny darkroom, but when time came to decide what I’d pursue in university, I thought it made sense to focus on something “concrete” – and I ended up double-majoring in professional writing & communication studies (but I still used up all my “elective courses” in photography).
Then, as I pursued my degree, I worked in a variety of part-time jobs that I really disliked and one day I just had a breakdown. I realized I no longer wanted to work on anything that did not fulfill me and inspire me. And so, at the end of 2011, just months after graduating, I decided to get my act together, pursue my dream, and open my own photography company.
