There are a lot of different reasons people choose their profession. I believe that doing what your passionate about is very important to keep yourself happy. The reason I became a photographer was because of my interest in technology and creativity. I have always been a creatively driven person and plan on being one for the rest of my life. I also love working with people, and luckily, photography lets me do both. I started my journey in high school when one of my best friends started taking pictures of Paintballers. Yup, Paintballers. At this point, I already had a camera that I had gotten from my father for graduating grade school. The only problem was that I didn’t really have an outlet for shooting, I just knew that I wanted to do it. Once I found out what my friend did, I knew I had to be part of it. We both took pictures and started our own little business. We made some money, but I really wasn’t in it for that. I did it because I loved it. My favorite part was seeing the people I took photos of super happy with how they turned out. That’s when I knew that I wanted to be involved in this for the rest of my life. I never had that satisfying feeling before and I knew I wanted to chase it. Today, I continue that chase, and it only comes when I do a great job. So whenever I take photos, I have to be happy with them, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that my clients are as satisfied as I am.
