A Chat with Old Pearl Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I started Old Pearl because I was consistently disappointed by how expensive and overly cheesy photography seems to have become. My goal is to create unique, realistic photography that captures the imagination and reminds us all how beautiful this world is.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was inspired to create my own business when I signed with a major modeling agency in NYC and had to spend a small fortune on a portfolio. I was shocked by the quality of photos that came back as well as the lack of dedication to the art. It should ALWAYS be about the art of it.
What do you love most about your job?
I love having the ability to show people their “worth.” I’ll explain. While superficial looks are hardly what’s important in life, I’ve found that having the ability to show someone what I see-true beauty in everything-is invaluable in longterm happiness and success.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I’ve had customers cry when they received their pictures back-in a good way. They didn’t think they were photogenic or didn’t feel comfortable about a photoshoot to begin with. It’s the best thing I could ask for in a profession.
