Meet Summer Kais

Today we’d like to introduce you to Summer Kais.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My uncle introduced me to my first camera when I was 16 years old. It was 1996 and film was still dominant. Kodak was still in the S&P 500. It was only 20 years ago, but the technology had not changed much for more than a century. I never had a darkroom, but I was always amazed by the amount of effort and labor that went into capturing one moment in time. Things have changed a lot since then. I decided to pursue my Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art at UC Irvine with an emphasis in photography. I opened my first studio in downtown San Diego in 2003, and subsequently spent three years in New York City before returning to San Diego in 2013. I work out of my downtown studio and on location.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Summer Kais – what should we know?
I specialize in commercial, fashion, and portrait photography. I am passionate about having a complete vision for each project and making sure clients enjoy the process. Photography is pretty magical and you want to feel that magic in addition to seeing it.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Attitude, persistence, and lifelong learning. Staying confused so that there is a fire to figure it out. Also, being humble. Balancing confidence with humility.
