Who is your inspiration in life Angel David? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is guys like Gary Vaynerchuk that talk about the importance of giving it your all and social media. Watching him keeps me inspired.
We all make mistakes Angel David; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Promising or taking jobs I was not ready to do. I rather do things for free to get experience than get paid and under deliver.
Angel David , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
Under promise and over deliver. Set realistic expectations of delivery times or the results they should get.
Please tell us, Angel David, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
When I was opening my studio, getting the jobs I need to fund it and keep it going. Putting concepts together and marketing to keep the studio running.
Angel David, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I deal a lot with this when I try to convince artists not to charge when they are just starting out because they are holding themselves back. That extra hundred dollars won't make you a better artist. But all the experience and content for your portfolio you got for doing it for free will.
Angel David, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
When I opened my studio.
Angel David, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I put this concept together called "Creative Backgrounds" and we had to build a magazine wall, flower wall, mirror wall, balloon wall, etc. It was hard putting together and shooting it to make it look good, but it was fun to do.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Shoot all the time, with everyone, for free if you have to for as long as you can. Learn to light online from professionals that are when my career changed.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Anything with anyone, I am open to it all.
