Our photography company came out of a love for taking truthful photos. We focus on headshots and behind the scenes photography because we are actors first. I grew to love photography because of a summer internship.

Savannah, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Photographer?

I aspire to be an actor, but I have a second love of photography. When I'm acting, I strive to be truthful, and I think that applies to photography as well. The best photos are the most truthful and candid ones.

Who is your inspiration in life, Savannah? How do you stay inspired as a Photographer?

The honest human condition inspires me. Sometimes humanity is raw and ugly, but other times the raw side is the most beautiful. I strive to capture both sides of humanity.

We all make mistakes Savannah; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?

I wish I had taken more classes on photography when I was in school. I used to be afraid of taking photos with a professional camera because I didn't understand how they worked. If I could go back, I would take more classes.

Savannah, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

I work with them through a directing standpoint. I want to give them things to think about and then let those things inspire their definition of humanity.

Please tell us Savannah, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

I am a planner for sure. I schedule my time diligently, so there is always a balance.

Savannah, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

There was a time when one client didn't want to do a certain pose. I insisted that it would make for a great photo, but they pushed back. Eventually, they agreed, and that became their favorite photo from the shoot.

Savannah, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer.

My proudest accomplishment was getting my first real review! It meant I was officially a real photographer.

Savannah, 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 did one shoot with twirling police lights, and it was extremely difficult to line the photos up, but in the end, the photos looked amazing!

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

Focus on the people, not the poses.
