A Chat with Russel Langley Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Not only am I a trained photographer, I am also a full-time photojournalist with the “Oak Ridger” newspaper. I am the sole owner of my business and I am a disabled combat veteran. Oak Ridge is my home and my customers are my neighbors.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have enjoyed photography since I was 15. After I retired from the military I decided I would pursue my passion as my second career. I love to take pictures of people and see the smile when they see the final results.
What do you love most about your job?
Making people happy. I did a session for a woman once who had just been through a bitter divorce. When she saw her prints she said, “You made me beautiful!” No amount of money can top that.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
See what I said above. I love to make people feel beautiful.
