We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamie Rivers and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jamie, how do you think about risk?
I believe I’m taking a risk everyday with my business. Especially when I’m not compensated for it. We live in a world where everyone respects a 9 to 5 job, and doesn’t feel as if people can survive on freelancing.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets me apart from other people is how passionate I am about my photography. I always make sure my clients feel confident and comfortable. Anything you truly want won’t come easy. but as long as you have faith in yourself others will soon see it as well!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I personally enjoy going to axelrad! it’s a great place to go in Houston. They have games you can play outside with friends while sipping on some of the best wines!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I don’t have anybody specific that i’d love to give a shout out to, but I would love to show appreciation to those who have supported me throughout my career. Rather it was financially, recommendation, commenting/liking post via social media. I truly appreciate it! it has helped me tremendously!
