I think that one of the characteristics of my personality is to give all the trust to the people that I know, and this gives me some trouble with people that are not very honest, but at the end talking clear is my best way to handle.

Francisco, 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?

This is a very important question because when I start a 100% in the photography business I made a mistake to try to keep the most quantity of clients, but the result was a bad service to some of them is for that reason that then of two years having a lot of customers I decided to maintain a low percent of customer, but looking for the best customers for me, that really appreciate my work so, this change in my business become in an excellent customer service and better profits to my business.

Please tell us, Francisco, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

My background in sales help me to have a lot of customers but start to work with a business plan it makes a great difference in my career, now I see clear my objectives.

Francisco, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I think when you have very clear your motivation, in my case is the photography, the way you talk so inspired in what you do the people see this passion and in this moment they know that they are in good hands.

Francisco, 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?
In my profession maybe you think that win a concourse is very important, but one of the most shocking moments in my career is when I finish a wedding, and in the following week the bride send me a message telling me that her father past away and the most beautiful moment is a picture that I took of both of them, this message show me how important is our work, narrating stories of the people.

Francisco, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Until now I feel so happy doing weddings it gives me the opportunity to be creative all the time, and my client they look for me for the way I take pictures or tell stories with images. 

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

I divide this question into 3 parts the first one is to find that their motivation is the photography, se second one prepares themselves the best possible to have a great job, and the third one is to have a business plan
