Below, Jerry tells us why he enjoys doing his work.
What do you love about your job?
I love several things about my job. First, I love meeting the creative people who are producing the products that I photograph. Second, I enjoy giving the client more than they have hoped for and having them say, “Awesome!”
Who inspired you to start your own business?
I was an assistant for commercial still life photographers in the summers during the 80s, and I fell in love with photography. However, as my mentor told me, there is no such thing as a weekend commercial photographer, and my full-time teaching job paid the bills. As soon as I retired from teaching, I started my commercial business, and now, I am pursuing my dream.
