Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in photography but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Alp Kamsiz, Owner of FotkAlp Photography, located in Cascais, Portugal.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a professional portrait and art photographer. My customers are business world people and locals who'd like to look like rock stars.
Tell us about yourself
Everyone has a certain talent; my talent was noticing aesthetics, making people feel comfortable, and coming up with creative ideas, which is ideal for a photographer. I am motivated by the feeling of doing what I am passionate about and seeing other people appreciate what I create as much as I do. Sometimes more.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
There's never a done accomplishment in my profession. Tomorrow is always newer and better. You progress until you die.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
You are responsible for every failure. No one to blame. It's only you.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Don't seek the easy way out.
- There's no success without learning every way to fail.
- Burn your ships. Without fulling committing, you won't get any results.
