Hey! I’m Krystle.
I’ve been a photographer even before I knew I was a photographer.. My Dad was BIG on getting pictures of me growing up (Coming from a NON Tech guy!) That old film and polaroid camera captured a ton of fun times! (Which I still have stored away) My Dad would take pictures of everything involving me from riding my bike in grandma’s yard to birthday parties beating up penyatas.
Over the years I started taking over the camera.. But I went from using film to digital. I LOADED my Photobucket account up (Anyone remember Photobucket? Okay maybe I’m showing my age LOL) I’d take pictures of anything, anywhere.
Flashback: My Best Friend Stephanie and I lived together out of high school. We had this vision to get dressed up (I’m talking pretty clothes and heels) and take pictures in the apartment gym at midnight…
Because we thought it would fun! And it’s a memory I will remember forever.
I was fine with just taking those types of photos, but something inside me wanted to get better.
Then I met (my now hubby) Sean. He introduced me to his sister in law which is am amazing photographer!
Her images told stories. They were more thought out, more meaningful.
The colors, the lighting, the tone and the atmosphere were all thought out. That’s what I wanted.
So I googled a bunch of “how to’s” on photography. I watched a shit ton of YouTub videos. I spent waaaaaaaaaay too much money on things I didn’t actually need. Most of the stuff I bought I maybe only used once because I didn’t even know how to use the product correctly. But it was flashy and promised to make me a better photographer! WRONG…. It did give me a lot of practice and trial/error experience. I am thankful for that!
(Flash Back photos coming soon)
I’ve been working on my craft for 10 years now. After many struggles along the way my journey I’ve become passionate about teaching new photographers. I’ve been told: “You’ll never make it! Photography is not a career! The market is too saturated! You’re not good enough! Stop wasting money on Photography, It’s not a real job/Business! Just do photography for fun. Follow these rules, it will make you better. Just do what I say and do it this way. Any other way is wrong!”
The people who told me those things were wrong. If you are passionate about photography and want to get started GO FOR IT!!! We all start somewhere and I will be your personal coach cheering you on along the way! That’s what makes me get up every day and love photography more and more. I want to help people learn the craft. Give them a place they can be themselves and share there art at any stage of their journey. I’m here for you!
