Today we’d like to introduce you to Joshua Killeen.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Joshua. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Introduced into the photo-journalistic realm of photography while thrust into overseas deployments when serving in the Military, I developed a passion for capturing “moments” in time. I slowly fed this passion over the course of ten years, until after much encouragement and support from friends and loved ones I began a course of study in digital imagery and film and UCSD.
Shortly after completing a degree in photographic images and technique, I launched a part-time business providing event and portrait photography serving Southern California! Within a year, this part-time business became a full-time venture, and I know own a three-team, globe-trotting photography company servicing locations internationally!
Has it been a smooth road?
Definitely not! First, expansion in this industry can be near impossible. Just some of the reasons include the massive amount of competition (just anyone can purchase a high-end camera these days and claim to be a professional), as well as the fact that finding reliable and trustworthy employees/partners are very challenging. Industry standard guidelines are all over the place, and the expectations of clients are often based on staged, editorial fashion that is, simply put, make-believe.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
We specialize in Photo-Journalistic capturing of special events, including wedding, corporate, birthdays, and celebrations of life. We are proud to be an ENJOYABLE photography company to work with! Taking the commercial approach to a wedding (for example) is a mistake that many larger photography companies make.
When a couple contracts us to capture their very special day, they are bringing us into a very intimate and personal setting. Making these clients feel comfortable, and them actually ENJOYING working with you is very important! Providing an extremely high-quality product is just an added bonus!
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
The wedding and event industry in San Diego is extremely lucrative. This being said, the level of competition can make starting out the industry a VERY challenging affair.
