BP: Tell us about your business.
CFP: I’ve been a professional photographer for over 25 years. The majority of my business is sports and dance studio photography. I also enjoy doing senior portraits, weddings and family sessions.
BP: How and why did you get started?
CFP: My step-dad was a photographer so I grew up loving photography. When I had the opportunity to join Parsons Photography over 25 years ago, I jumped at the chance to make a living doing what I love! A few years ago, I decided to start my own photography business with my wife.
BP: What sets you apart from your competition?
CFP: I have a unique perspective to offer clients and many years of experience. Instead of taking multiple photos of the same subject and then editing to find the perfect one, I can usually capture the perfect photo with one or two shots.
BP: Tell us a funny story that happened with your business.
CFP: While I was photographing a wedding at Ohme Gardens, a little lizard got inside the bride’s dress while we were taking photos. It was quite comical!
BP: What’s your favorite type of marketing and why?
BP: What advice do you have for someone looking to start their own business?
