- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our goal as a company is to change the way that you think about photographers. We've taken the process of hiring photographers and streamlined it, from start to finish, so that you can enjoy the parts that matter - the special moments and the experience of working with Wise Owl! We understand the level of trust that it takes to hire a photographer, and have spent the entire history of this company focused on that fact. No matter what we put in front of our lenses, we strive to attain a sense of comfort and trust that we have everything taken care of. EVERYONE has the ability to take a photo nowadays, but we've poured our souls into showing you why the experience of working with a photographer is worth the investment of your time and resources.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
As the founder of a photography company, it's a funny thing to say, but the very last thing I'd ever be doing is taking pictures for a living. I've always been romanced by the idea of being behind a camera, but until a single college course put a camera in my hands, I had no aspiration to even try to out as a professional endeavor. I was a musician, and I wouldn't dare let anyone tell me otherwise! It wasn't long before I found myself totally seduced by putting people on camera. Capturing moments in peoples' lives is powerful to me, whether it be an individual or an occasion. It's the oldest cliche in the book, but cementing a single moment in time, for whatever the purpose is absolutely awe-inspiring to me. Before long, I became obsessed with reimagining the way people see photographers - I'd seen hundreds of photographers who were just... clunky... unprofessional... It was a no-brainer to me - we're 2 decades into this century. Photography should feel modern. We do what we do with reverence to the craft, and a vision to the future.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
We do great work for great people (who often do great things). Working with a photographer is a relationship, and we take that very seriously! Although we specialize in professionals and corporate work (headshots, events, conferences, and commercial work), we do take requests for weddings and special occasions! When it comes to a private shoot, like a wedding, we start from the ground up in fostering the relationship into an experience that you won't be able to help but brag about! The priority for us is showing that we've invested our 100% into you or your project, and that you've walked away feeling proud and empowered in your decision to hire us.
