We had the good fortune of connecting with Chevy Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chevy, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I did not have a set “thought process” about my business. I started it because it was truly an outlet for my mind and creativity. Once I started to share my VISIION with close friends and family they really encouraged me to actually take the step to promote myself as a business and take on clients. Now that I have this great dream turned into a job started and rolling, my thoughts are only to stay true to myself and my creativity.
I look at my business as an opportunity to express my views and enhance people’s views on themselves. NO VISIION IS TOO BIG 333 is the drive behind my business. It’s my universal love note to everyone to look at themselves, their business, their life or whatever and see the VISIION. Be limitless, be fearless. 10 years later, I’m aggressively driving the VISIION into people like a car crash. YOU ARE GOING TO SEE WHAT I SEE! NO IFS, ANDS OR BUTS.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
NO VISIION IS TOO BIG 333 is everything my brand stands on. I say this literally to anybody that I can and it only means that whatever you dream is not too big or too far to achieve. Believe in yourself and map out the steps to get there and DO IT. Lazy feet don’t win the race.
Mentally it was not easy to get where I’m at right now. You think yeah I want to shoot the big celebrities and events because that’s where the money’s at when in reality everyone I have came around is another step in my dream. I had to realize that everyone is a celebrity, including myself. Once I started to look at my craft from the heart and not from the dollar bill , my life took off. Im shooting with all types of people and I treat them with luv. It’s not about status, it’s about the love you have for your craft.
Now that I have mastered the ability to SEE myself forreal, it’s up. Im unstoppable. I can come in any room and eat you up like a steak and that’s from a mental point and from the point of my camera. My confidence is mean. I take it as a challenge to be the person in the room with the top shot but I’m never cocky. I love to see other people’s VISIION and embrace them with luv. That’s what it’s all about. Being genuine and all the blessings came in like a flood.
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?
I love Atlanta. It’s just colorful. Some many places to eat, drink and vibe. If I had to start one place, I would start at Stone Mountain. I spent most of my childhood in this area and it’s very important that i emphasize the importance that it had on my creativity. We will climb to the top of the mountain and just suck in the beauty. Now that we are tired and hungry, I would take them to like midtown or lil 5 and stop at random restaurants that caught my eye.I literally like to just stop places and eat. Anything with a good bar and food is my kind of place. I love eating at Carribean spots like mangos on Edgewood or as a typical ATL person I’m grabbing wings at American Deli and taking them to my favorite parks/lake to eat them on top of my car.
Later in the day now that it’s time to party, I love the small intimate bars around atl like OURBARATL on edgewood or going to Bonfire ATL. Wherever I can vibe peacefully, not get charged $40 at the door, and some good food I’m there lol
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
For starts ME. Shoutout to me for stepping into myself and staying solid to me and MY VISIION. It’s so easy to get shaped and moved when you are constantly comparing yourself and I truly deaded any doubt in my mind that I am not the sh*t. I am that shooter, I am that creator of imagery. We can go camera for camera and picture for picture.
My grandmother MARKEEGA TURNER. God rest her soul but I know when my angel is near me and she pick me up everytime. She confirm my thoughts every time by leaving little signs around.
My team of great people I work with day in and out. Every week we are pushing each other to the next level. There is never a moment of doubt and if there is, we are going to shrink it down. I trust them with my life and I believe in them just as hard as they do me.
