Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Our readers would love to get to know you more Craig. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
What makes me unique in my photography is my eye for focus on the story or subject.
Craig, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is to work with other creative individuals and build a powerful brand.
I love a beautiful scene, so I just started capturing them.
Who is your inspiration in life Craig? How do you keep inspired?
I'm inspired to be great for myself, I strive to be the best I can be in everything I do.
As far as I know, you only live once so you gotta give it you're best.
We all make mistakes Craig, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I just had a few cases where I learned you have to be careful mixing business with personal relationships.
Craig, 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?
I'm very organized and work off a schedule if the models or designers are running late, I make sure to have clear communications with the people I'm working with.
Please tell us, Craig, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I usually have to be very strategic when shooting at daycares.
Young kids can really slow your workflow, so in order to meet goals, I set times on how many kids should be photographed in an hour.
Craig, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
When editing photos, if I'm given the creative freedom and a client doesn't think or has a different opinion, we usually talk it out, also you can take a great photo but the person may think they look funny or ugly, you just have to talk it out and let them know they look great, people can be the biggest critics on themselves.
Craig, 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?
Just shooting my son and girlfriend, I love to see the smiles and the beauty of my 2 loved ones
Craig, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I'm usually able to be creative with my work, that's one of the reasons I decided to be my own boss and work freelance.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Learn to make money shooting and using the style you wanna use, then it, not a kid or work, it's your passion.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
All of the above, models, designers and artists are all welcome, I also do networking events and family shoots.
Now for the best part Craig! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
