I believe having the ability to take higher quality photos at my age is unique. It's not very often you see a photographer do professional wedding portraits and still be in high school.
William, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
It's started when I got my first flip phone. I wanted to take photos of the sky and put them online for people to download and set them on their wallpapers. I thought it was the coolest thing at the time. Then I eventually upgraded to landscaping on an iPhone. My parents saw my talent and got me my first little camera. It was small and weak, but I made it work for a year before I upgraded to a Nikon the following year for a wedding.
Who is your inspiration in life William? How do you keep inspired?
I don't think I have very much inspiration. I enjoy taking photos, and I enjoy it when I see someone else enjoying my photos.
We all make mistakes William; 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.
I haven't had the chance to have a confrontation with a colleague yet.
William, 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?
It's simply a matter of being able to manage your time correctly and write things down and be very friendly to provide the most exemplary service possible.
Please tell us, William, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
Well, there was a time at a wedding I did not too long ago where I wanted to get a shot of the bride approaching the groom at the altar. I had to quickly dolphin dive into the choir pit and snap away before she reached the altar.
William, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
When I was teaching my new second shooter at a wedding a while back. I told him to get all the candid shots while I work on portraits. He didn't know what I meant until I took a candid shot and showed him what I was looked jog for him to do.
William, 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?
When I was able to please and surprise my clients with my work on a stronger camera this last September.
William, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I was still on iPhone, I saw this little puddle in the street on the way home from school. You could see the clouds, the sun and a few trees in the reflection. So I had an idea, I would take a picture of the puddle, flip it upside down, darken and hue the image to look like Stars in the sky with a sun on the horizon.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
If you truly aspire By to make money being a photographer, make sure you can market yourself. A lot of photographers cannot do this and fail ultimately.
