How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been doing photography since before I was 7 years old. My parents gave me a Kodak Brownie Holiday Flash, which, at that time, retailed for $4.95 ("real money" at that time, in my father's words). I formed Cheshire Cat Photo in 2007, after a 9.6% restructuring at my Silicon Valley employer eliminated my position, along with many others, and I was able to take a lifelong passion to a profession.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When hiring a photographer, consider experience, reputation, and customer service. Most of my work with my photos occurs AFTER I release the shutter. My history of employment in customer service roles and emphasis on quality and customer service distinguishe Cheshire Cat Photo from its competition.
