We had the good fortune of connecting with Savannah Bullard and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Savannah, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
My goal right now is to attend an university and major in dance studies along with nutrition and health. My goal is to become a professional choreographer as well as a nutritionist. With nutrition, my goal is to help end food deserts in urban communities. I also plan to continue to grow my photography business.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Whenever I first started taking pictures, I was always unsatisfied with how they turned out. Sometimes the lighting would be too dark or the lens would not be fully focused, I would get quite frustrated sometimes. Looking back, I would definitely say that I got caught up in comparison with photographers that have been doing this art for a lot longer than I had. Along with that, covid-19 came and pushed back a lot of things for me which was a blessing and a curse. At that time, I took a lot of pictures of my family members (including my dog) and nature. I was able to grow in my quality by using the extra time to figure out what I was doing wrong. By the time the strictest restrictions ended, my pictures looked a lot better and put me in a better position to start a business out of what I do.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Whenever I go to Houston, my favorite place to eat is Tout Suite. I always get there chicken sandwich which is to die for! Another fun thing I love doing in Houston is having a picnic with my friends or family at Eleanor Tinsley park. It gives you the perfect view of Houston. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to give a lot of credit to my parents. They constantly inspire me to be self- motivated and to always go after my goals. Both of my parents have several entrepreneurial businesses so I am thankful that they are there to help guide me. Along with my parents, I would like to thank one of my dad’s friends Mr. Darrell Dorsey. He has been such a blessing for me throughout my photography journey. From helping me pick out the perfect camera to donating expensive camera equipment to me, he has been a large part of my journey.
