Cynthia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
Art is my passion and I love to create and show others how beautiful they truly are!
Who is your inspiration in life Cynthia? How do you keep inspired?
I am inspired by each person individually. Everyone has a different story to tell, no one is alike. Everyone is beautiful I. Their own way and I love showing a client an image for the first time and getting that "wow" factor!
We all make mistakes Cynthia, 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 try to be as reasonable as possible and give the benefit of the doubt.
Cynthia, 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?
Treat everyone the way I would like to be treated. I focus genuinely on the client at hand and set times to respond to previous clients, providing the best customer service possible to each one.
Please tell us, Cynthia, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I set times daily for different tasks in order to reach all my daily, monthly goals.
Cynthia, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
The other day a fellow photographer was bashing on someone manipulating a body. I explained to her why "I" do it and she then ended up starting to do it herself.
Cynthia, 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?
I photographed an actor and because of my photo, he landed a job.
Cynthia, 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 love to composite and sometimes I may not get exactly what I want but I make it work.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
