For the last two years, I've been self-teaching myself
BJ, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
When my son was born, I went and brought a camera from the pawnshop at the time I was also promoting parties, so I started taking shots to post on my social media. After a few weeks, people started asking me to shoot their parties, weddings and so on. That brought the entrepreneur out and I start researching and studying the rest was history
Who is your inspiration in life BJ? How do you keep inspired?
Being a role model for my children and the teenagers that I coach inspire me to keep pushing forward on a personal aspect, but business wise seeing the joy from being able to be whomever you want, role playing dressing up or being free of life during a photo shoot inspires me to continue learning my cameras and becoming a better photographer.
We all make mistakes BJ; 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.
