Check Out Ian Escalante’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ian Escalante.

Hi Ian, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’ve always been fascinated with editing photos and putting dramatic filters on things that I’ve captured over time, I’ve always had a creative mindset and loved taking photos. I never really became truly interested and involved with photography until midway through high school, as soon as I graduated, my mother had purchased me a camera as a graduation present, a “Nikon d3500”. Early on, I shot portraits and wildlife and some close friends for about a year before I started as a business. I have been shooting for about two years as a freelancing photographer and hope grow more as I continue on my journey.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I’ve had some struggles that I have run into along the way, for example I have come a long way with color grading my photos correctly in order to achieve an enticing image and improving the way I edit my photos as well, even though there’s always room for improvement.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I enjoy doing portrait work and have recently been involving myself more in the street photography scene in order to be more versatile. I’m most proud of my improvement from when I first started to take photos and the results I am seeing now, what sets me apart from others is that I usually brainstorm a lot more on the way to a shoot, as opposed to jotting down ideas on a notepad to keep for a reminder.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I wouldn’t say luck but more of an appreciation for my clients that have spread the word about my business in which brings more clients.
