Meet Brittney Gossmeyer of Pure Light Fine Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Gossmeyer.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began my journey with photography my senior year in high school. I chose photography as my last elective. It was one of those “Well I need the credit so……” type of things. And although our teacher was not the friendliest, I fell in love. In the class we started with 35mm film cameras, black rooms and all! It was definitely more of a challenge. As challenging as it was, I’m grateful for it because it gave me a deeper appreciation of the art. After high school I was a broke college kid, always working but never made enough to buy the “nice” camera.

Fast forward to right after my wedding in 2014, I received a surprise bonus from my employer at the time and decided to take the leap and buy my first digital SLR camera. After dusting of my skills and learning all that I could about everything photography for a few months, I knew this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Soon after, I started my business!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As much as I’d like to say it’s been easy breezy, but it hasn’t. It’s taken a lot of hard work, self-discipline, and humility to get here. While education prepares you for what to expect, I think the real learning comes from real life experience. I would have to say my biggest struggle has been getting my name out. I’m confident in the work I provide and my clients love the memories they get to cherish forever. My clients cherish quality photography and products. I know if everyone could experience Pure Light Fine Photography, they would fall in love too!

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
When I was 17, the company my mom works for took us on a company trip to Oahu, HI. It was the most fabulous experience I’ve ever had. The whole week was great but one of the days our entire group went to the local sea life park to swim with the dolphins. I was nervous and excited I could hardly contain myself. This was MY moment!! This was the closest to Free Willy or a Shamu Trainer I was ever going to get! Right?!?!

Well it was everything I could’ve dreamed of! We swam with the dolphins, thy swam with us and they seemed to almost enjoy it as much as we did. As our visit was coming to an end, it was feeding time. Among the group of dolphins was a small female calf. She was a little spit fire and obviously hadn’t gotten down the ques yet because she went where she wanted, when she wanted. To my luck that was by me and playing in feet. She was being so stubborn that they handed me the fish and told me to try feeding her and I did! Seriously, the best memory ever!
