This is my good friend, Savannah Sears. She’s a 19 year old entrepreneur photographer located in the coastal region. She started her business , Icon Photography, at the very young age of 15. Because she is so successful, talented, and creative I decided I wanted to interview her. Below you’ll find out what motivated her and how she started and more 🙂
T:What inspired you to do photography?
S: I remember when my sister, Kayla, started doing photography when I was younger. When I saw her work, it inspired me to begin my photography career.
T:How did you get started?
S: I went to a local christian rock band show at the Shed and I brought my camera with me. I didn’t consider myself a photographer at the time but when I got home and posted the photos on Facebook, the lead singer of the band told me I should make a business out of it.
T: How long have you been doing photography?
S: Almost 6 years.
T: Do you think you would do photography forever?
S: Yes, 100%!
T: What photos are you most confident about?
S: There are two shows that I went to, Queensryche and WeirdAl Yankovic, both at the Hard Rock in Biloxi, Ms. Not only did I enjoy photographing them, but I also enjoyed the reactions of the crowd and their performances.
T: When you first started out being a photographer, people didn’t take you seriously, why?
S:Because no one considers photography or any type of art form as a real career.
T: If you have a chance to have a photo session with any famous person, who would it be?
S: Demi Lovato because she’s freaking fabulous, gorgeous, and inspirational.
