Today we’d like to introduce you to Dorian Hill.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Dorian. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I fell in love with photography because of the incredible work of Gordon Parks and Melodie McDaniel‘s images in the movie Love Jones. My parents gifted me a camera and the learning process began. I am self-taught, only taking a photography class in high school. I got to where I am today by working hard at my craft and never being satisfied with where I am. I am always learning. I want to be the best at what I do.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Honestly, it hasn’t been a smooth road. I would say the major thing that I struggled with was the business and marketing side in the beginning. And my consistent fear of not being good enough.
Dorian Hill Photography – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My company is called Dorian Hill Photography. We specialize in lifestyle and portraits work. I am most proud that I am able to continue to get new clients by word of mouth and people seeing my work via social media. I believe my eye, my preparation, my work ethic and attention to detail are the things that set me apart from others.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I wouldn’t do anything different. Wait Wait Wait, I’m lying. LOL! I would be more confident in the work that I was producing and not be so hard on myself. I would also be more consistent with posting my work on social media, especially Instagram. It’s where all the eyes are now.
