We had the good fortune of connecting with Darrell Peel Jr. and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darrell, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
For me giving up is not an option. I have two lovely daughters and a beautiful wife, that looks up to me and everything that I do. So, that alone will always keep me going.

I also truly believe that there is a time for everything and everything on earth has its special season.

There are times where you may feel nothing is going your way and there are times you may feel as if you are on top of the world.

Everyone has there own seasons. Just because things are not going your way at the moment, does not mean that it’s time to give up. Understand that your season is not here yet. So be patient and keep going because your season is approaching.

What should our readers know about your business?
As an artist of photo and video, I began taking on the journey of videography in the year of 2017. I was able to use the platform and volunteer for my cousins organization that goes by the name of 3-D World Wide. Not to blow my own horn but I was pretty talented at what I did. Especially the fact that I was capturing everything from an iPhone 8.

In 2020, when the pandemic began, I had enough time to reflect on my God gifted talent and think about how I should move forward with it. At this time I was a full time teacher, however, I really founded joy and peace when I was behind the lens. So, I decided to take a leap out on faith, highly invest in myself, and move forward with what I truly love doing and never looked back.

Was this easy? Not at all! However, with my daughters and wife looking up to my brave action and me believing in myself, I had no choice but to keep going.

What sets me apart from others is that I involve God in every aspect and part of Studio Peel. With any accomplishment, and opportunity, I always give God 100% of the glory and credit. Not to say nobody else does but as for myself that’s what I do. My number one saying is “AGTG” (All Glory To God)!

What I am excited about is the fact that I know God has so much in store for me. If you can’t tell already I am extremely Humbled. Thanks to my Parents & Grandparents. Even through the toughest times within having this business, I keep going because of the simple fact that I know that I will and can achieve anything with God on my side.

The lessons that I have learned along this journey, is to always stay prepared, stay focused, don’t tell everyone what your next move is, and always keep your faith strong!

Here at Studio Peel, the main goal and focus is to capture stories in the form of images and videos. When we work with others on any project, our goal is to provide the best photo and video graphic records of those moments.

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.
So on Monday we will go bowling and play a few games at Dave & Busters.

Tuesday, we will go to Top Golf because everything is half priced in Tuesdays.

Wednesday, I’ll probably take him to a roof top bar downtown.

Thursday, I’ll take him to The Galleria to shop for some really dope clothes for a surprise photo shoot. Afterwards, get a bite to eat at 51Fifteen Restaurant.

Friday during the day, go to brunch. At night, we’ll go to a show or concert.

Saturday, we’ll head out to Galveston Beach, ride the jet skis, go fishing, and finish it off at Pleasure Pier.
