We had the good fortune of connecting with Eben Whajah and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eben, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I always was fascinated of creating images and also thought telling a story with images was amazing. I wanted to capture the moments that can’t be redo like the special or moments you will always look back and smile. Even though I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, I knew the world needs to see my work so I did.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The only thing that set me apart from others is my work ethics, see am a workaholic and I will do anything to achieve whatever I set my eyes and mind on. One thing I hate is excuses. Is either you doing it or not and if you say you doing it ,do your best. I have been taking pictures as a hobby since 2012,I always loved it. Started professional 3 years ago, I won’t say it was easy but since it was a hobby before career it’s been amazing for me. The only few difficulties might be a client that want sudden changes after you worked on their project, or clients showing up late to their shoot. But you just have to be patients and make sure you get the work done perfect because at the end of the day when the pictures comes out and the client post it or show to their friends if it bad she/he will mention you the photographer without telling them what happened behind the scenes about them being late or the last minute changes. I learned that doing your best in whatever you doing can get you to places you only imagined. I want the world to know am best in what I do as a photographer , matter fact am the greatest. And this is just the beginning.
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?
First of all I will take the to the best African Restaurant in Atlanta, IKE`S CAFE AND GRILL. They have the best food. Then take them to downtown ATLANTA to show them around.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my beautiful family for always supporting me even when I come up with some crazy ideas. Also I want to thank everyone that being supported me and believe in what I do.
