How did you get into your business, and what motivated you to start it?: I have had a love for the art of photography since I was a child and got my first camera, a Polaroid, at the age of 7.

I also discovered at an early age that I had an entrepreneurial spirit and was always happier doing my own thing than following the crowd.

My passion for photography evolved from there, and a little over a year after purchasing my first DSLR, I officially started my business.

Previous business experience: Prior to starting my business, I had my Master of Business Administration degree and worked as a supervisor for a local credit-card processing company.
