Interview with Christopher
“Photography is an art that is always evolving, I plan to be a student for the rest of my life.”

 

What does photography mean to you?

An expression of skill and creativity. Freezing moments in time to keep and reflect on later.

 

What inspires you?

Other photographers. I have a competitive spirit, wanting to one up others.

 

What made you realize that you had a passion for photography?

My passion for combat sports lead me to capture some related events. I realized there was an opportunity to capture great moments in difficult lighting situations and potentially earn a living while learning every event.

 

How did you learn the art of photography?

I had a mentor who was a published photographer. I learned much from him and had a professional DSLR to practice with through the job he gave me. Photography is an art that is always evolving, I plan to be a student for the rest of my life.

 

How long have you been a photographer?

I have shot events for over 8 years. I have been a full-time photographer for over 5.

 

How has your journey as a photographer been like?

Mostly positive. I’ve been able to make a living on photography alone. There are times with any freelance job where you run into negotiation issues. In addition, the cost of equipment is always high; however, skills and experience will always beat an amateur with better equipment. Regardless, if I chose another career path to take, my photography journey will never end.

 

What are your plans for the future in reference to your career?

Continue capturing in my current job and hopefully events will be back in 2021. There are other avenues such as video I may enter into if there is potential for secondary income.

 

How would you describe your photography style?

I prefer to focus on candid and action photography. I do enjoy all types of photography though.

 

What were some of the challenges that you came across as a photographer?

Cost of equipment, negotiations for payment, and being credited for my photos.

 

What is the most rewarding part about being a photographer?

The client’s satisfaction after receiving my work is always going to be number one. Recognition for capturing moments from others is a great feeling as well.
