What is unique about me is that I wear bow ties and I only wear my socks one time then donate them!
Vincent, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is to open my studio one day and have my work hanging in homes all over the world!
Who is your inspiration in life Vincent? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is my beautiful fiance and my daughter (no longer with us). The constant thought of those smiles keeps me pressing forward and progressing every day.
We all make mistakes Vincent; 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.
My very first wedding I shot I missed "the kiss" due to not packing an extra battery and my camera going dead. I wish I could take back that entire day. It was embarrassing, to say the least, calling myself a professional and that happening.
Vincent, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I prioritise my client's needs in the same way they do. I feel it is very important that I make sure to pay extra attention to the things they find most important because those are the "must haves" for sure.
Please tell us, Vincent, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
When it comes to taking on a lot of new work, it becomes very hard to find time to edit them to a certain style, but I make sure to find time to exhale before diving into every session making sure to capture the essence of each session.
Vincent, 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 I was in sales training at work, and I had to do a presentation persuading others on how to sell products, and the hard part was I had to against top sellers to in the market with a new strategy.
Vincent, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment as a photographer was my first time selling a print to a customer. This is my proudest moment because it was the first of many in my pursuit of having my work hanging in homes across the world. I was so happy I ordered a second print for myself.
Vincent, 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 was able to shoot a session with a woman who wanted to look like her favourite TV show "I Love Lucy" It was a great time, and we got some great shots that day. I loved t because we were able to have so much freedom with it and she got exactly what she wanted.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
Ignore the fears and keep going! Don't let fear be the thing to hold you back!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I love collaboration! I would love to meet with some new brands and creatives!
