An interview with Mrs. Chandra Bryan a freelance photographer from Pueblo, Colorado
Friends and family know her as a woman with the ability to capture memories that are worth saving. Mrs. Chandra Carroll Bryan is a wife and mother and just recently opened up her own business - 4th Element Photography in Pueblo, Colorado. She has successfully turned her hobby into a career and encourages others to follow their passions and to go after their dreams. She is a photographer who loves what she does.
Turning a hobby into a career
Ms. Bryan has come to believe that taking photographs is a mindset, a passion and a way of life, but she also understands that it takes a great deal of commitment, skill and talent to produce quality photos. Photographers are a special breed of people, they fixate on the world around them through an artistic point of view and that is why a true photographer can always find work.
It takes a keen eye to take a quality picture. Ms. Bryan says that although she may not be able to describe what a great photo is, she can tell you what it isn’t. A great photo isn’t something that you can quickly pass over. It’s all in capturing the perfect angle, the light and the essence from that moment. A bad photograph just isn’t worth saving.
Taking the perfect photo is just a matter of being patient and having a quality camera, Mrs. Bryan goes on to say, “I know what I like and what I think looks good and a bad camera or a shot taken too soon can destroy a photo”.
She has been taking photographs for years now and soon discovered that her friends and family were willing to pay the market price for her to take their personal photos. That is when she realized that her knack for taking photos could be more than just a hobby.
Her ability to transform a photo into a piece of art or into a story is what sold her as a photographer. Mrs. Bryan believes that every photographer has their own unique style and that is what sets them apart.
Her advice to other budding photographers is keep doing what you love to do and don't stop learning. Photography is an art and each photograph has the potential to become a masterpiece, so hone your skills and perfect your talent.
Mrs. Bryan’s portfolio is full of photographs and her services are in great demand, so much in fact that she doesn’t really need to advertise because word of mouth is working for her right now.
In 2011, she officially opened up her own photography business and she would encourage anyone who has a passion for photography to do the same.
