We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexander FRE$CO and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexander, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
First thought was, how do I make this work. I weighed all of my options and made a plan for myself. Set achievable goals and fulfill them. I knew I didn’t want to have a “boss” anymore, so I had to go all in, in order to make it work. And so far so good, we have been booming.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart is my ability to listen and understand my clients. I always want to make sure my clients are pleased with the work I do and I go above and beyond for them. I am everything I am because of my clients, the word of mouth is much stronger than an advertisement. With work it’s never easy but you learn a rhythm that sets you up for success. I’ve learned many lessons when it comes to photography and I’m still learning them today and that’s what’s so great about it. You are always learning and growing.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Would have to take them to the club scene and bar hop from club to club. The downtown Jackson, MS is plenty of fun for a night out. Also, Dope for pics as well
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to my studio mates at THE MURALS, in Jackson, MS. Thank you for believing in me, allowing me to grow and always holding me to the standard. I love yall
