We had the good fortune of connecting with Chris Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chris, why did you pursue a creative career?
Art has always been apart of me since the day I was born… Whether it was photography, music, fashion it was just apart of the culture as well in my household and city… I was born with these gifts/talents really art pursued me..
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
In my work the thing that sets me apart is my connection with people and my ability to draw out their emotions to set the mood for each individual picture. I believe my personality has assisted in getting me to where I am professionally. When people book me for their pictures they know that they are going to not only love their photos but the entire experience that goes along with shooting. I have always been in the entertainment industry to some extinct so luckily I have made a lot of connections with people that has helped me to brand myself to a targeted audience. I wouldn’t say this has been an easy journey but by staying true to myself as an individual and photographer I have been able to cut out some of the unnecessary headaches that typically come along with being a young entrepreneur. I’ve learned to never confuse what you are offered with what you’re worth. Some times there will be people who try and make you feel like your price is unrealistic but trust the value of your work and just no that you aren’t for everyone and that’s okay. I want the world to know when you come get your photos taken they are going to be some of the best and you can never go wrong with booking Chris jones Visuals.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a Shoutout to God, My Wife, and the people he has put in place during this journey to keep pushing me to the next level of success.
