We had the good fortune of connecting with Larry Young and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Larry, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
I believe most people don’t realize the amount of pre and post work that is involved in creating really good images.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I believe what sets me apart is that my clients see my passion in creating something that will leave an impression on them for a lifetime. what i’m most excited about is that I am no where near my full potential and the journey of becoming a world class photographer is definitely what i love to look forward to. I got where i’m at today by perseverance and support from my family. Not everyday you will feel like your work is worth it. A major lesson i’ve learned is, do your research and test. Become a fan of failures because they are the guides to success. what i would like to the world to know about my brand and story is that i’ve created work that has made people find a place of happiness and nostalgic warmth.
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 when family visits me, we have a blast at the house between our music playing and the great food my wife (culinary degree graduate) Our home is the hot spot but if we do go out if would be to the belt line or piedmont part and any food establishment in those areas.
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?
Definitely a shoutout to my wife and daughter. They give me the encouragement and motivation to push on everyday.
