A Chat with Toni Smailagic Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I have worked in the fashion realm for the past six years, and due to travel I’ve been able to apply fashion techniques to everyday people—allowing them to be photographed the same way a model would. Groups, couples, kids, or singles.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’ve been running my business for five years and being influenced to be a entrepreneur from a young age, I could never see myself working for someone else.
What do you love most about your job?
I have a general love for people. Being around them, learning about them, and being introduced to new perceptions. Travel and the arts come in a close second, as I’m infinitely curious about the world’s offerings.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I’ve received the same comments on several different occasions, but the best feedback is always “you made me look better than anyone I’ve shot with. I look like how I feel I look.“
