Over eight years, I worked hard to build greater awareness and acceptance of queer Jews in our community.
What lead you to “Justine’s Journey into Professional Photography?”
What do you love about the art of photography?
What are some of the challenges you face as a photographer?
There’s a lot of competition out there. I have to work hard to differentiate myself. I achieve this by engaging with my clients and making them feel comfortable during a session. Being professional and respectful while delivering high-quality images is my top priority.
What are the greatest lessons you’ve learned as a photographer?
Mentorship! Working alongside experienced photographers has been critical to my professional growth. I shadow my mentors at gigs and then practice the skills they teach me. Working alongside more experienced photographers has significantly improved my work.
Staying creative! To break out of my routine and think outside the box, I do street photography and casual photoshoots in cool urban venues. I focus (no pun intended) on new poses and shooting from different angles. This helps me get creative, all whilst having fun and taking eye-catching shots.
Social media marketing! The power of social media cannot be understated enough. I regularly post my pictures on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Showcasing images that people can connect with emotionally is critical to increasing engagement and attracting new clients.
Famous Last Words
I love being a photographer. It took me a while to find my passion, but now that I’m here, I’m never turning back! I truly enjoy interacting with clients and capturing their personalities with my lens. It’s an honour to document the special, intimate moments in people’s lives. I can’t wait to take photos without the barrier of COVID masks and social distancing!
