Please welcome Amy Bjornson as our July Featured Photographer!
1. What inspired you to start your business?
Gosh, this is a great question. I have always known I had an eye for something, but until I found photography I was searching. I attended school at the Art Institute here in San Diego. I was getting my degree in business /marketing actually when I took a photography class. I remember seeing my instructors images, she was a wedding photographer, and I got a feeling I had never felt, those images spoke to me in way and I said to my self, ” I dont think I’ll ever be able to do something like that, but If I did that would be a dream come true! ” and it was just a moment when you get a feeling that something felt right, something I wanted and something I was not going to let anything get in the way of. I could not change my major as I was already invested financially with my marketing degree. So I took a few classes, and from there I had to teach my self, I asked questions like crazy, I did research, I had to get out and experiment, I never gave up on that passion to figure out how I could create beautiful images and make that my career, I just starting taking photos and lots of them, then people that I knew asked me to photograph their wedding ( did I know what I was doing ) YIKES … no, but It must have been natural to me .. cause I look back … and I DID IT … and now I can say, I’m doing it ! I have to be honest I am proud to say that hard work, dedication and passion truly pays off, I encourage anyone who thinks that their goal of what they want to do for a living is out of their reach to re consider that thought … you just have to want it !
