We had the good fortune of connecting with Ariel Powell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ariel, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
So, I was always the photographer of the family. When we had reunions and family gatherings I use to always take photos so I decided to start my own business which Is Lioness Films & Photography.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
2022 I’m proud that I have been nominated for photographer of the year and nominated entrepreneur of the year.

So I always had an gift for photography because I always the one that my family will have to take photos for reunions, family vacations and more. So I have taking photos for 8 years but I started taking it serious 3 years ago.

My biggest challenge is being the best person I was yesterday.

I’m best celebrity photographer in Charleston.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
So Charleston, SC have great sceneries, beaches, and restaurants.

California Dreaming is a nice restaurant you can either enjoy the luxury inside the building or eat outside and feel the breeze.

Go on Charleston harbor boats rides.

The beaches are great.

Since I love photography, poetry, I would have them come to a place called 787 for a show called FOR THE LOVE POETRY they have some dope poets put on a show, sip & paint, and more.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
God for giving me the gift to share to the world.

I want thank my parents for buying my first camera.

I want to thank my clients and supporters that continue to support me ( y’all keep me going).
