We had the good fortune of connecting with Bernard King and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bernard, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted build a legacy for myself, I didn’t really have anything special going for me, so starting my photography business was something special to me. I’ve always been a fan of art and I see photos and videos as a work of art, that is what drew me more towards grabbing a camera and learning about photos and videos.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a photographer & videographer, I’m creative and I’m very easy to work with. I’m mostly proud of how far I’ve came, I remember when I first started and I was struggling to understand certain things, but now I understand it all plus more. I got where I am today by doing a lot of free work for people in order to get my brand out there. I did a lot of different types of work to see what I like and what I don’t like, it really helped shape my brand. None of it was every easy but I stuck to it because this is what I love doing.
I want people to know that hard work always pays off, I’m still working hard to get to my ultimate goal with this business and I will never give up. I will always work hard to get more clients and build more relationship with others.
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?
To be honest, I just moved to Atlanta a few months ago, so I’m still trying to discovery all the nice places around here. Atlantic Station has a nice vibe and there are a few places to eat over there. The aquarium is also a nice place to take friends. Other than that, I don’t really know many other places.
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?
I want to shoutout all my friends that supported me from the beginning. The have continued to show love and support through out my journey, they have seen the growth.
