Meet Ej Flores of 93ways in Carson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ej Flores.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Ej. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
It’s been an interesting journey for me with photography stuff. Where everything began for me was doing YouTube with my homies & me just overseeing everything trying to be apart of everything including the behind the scenes!

Watching my good friend Curtis Watson with the camera it made me want to get a camera but it took me seeing a lot of Art & other photographers creating art of insta to really make sure I got a camera so my cousin got me a canon rebel t5 & that was my baby for half of a year til my boy zayshawn Thompson lend me his Sony A7 that’s what I’ve been shooting with ever since so I couldn’t do this on my own on to getting were I’m at!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My first year of doing photography thru Instagram was very difficult for me just really wondering if this was something I really wanted to do I had to grow into my skin a bit & gain self-confidence in myself because this is my world so when a model or anybody shot with me I had to understand that they were coming to my world & I gotta deliver every time.

I’ve been rejected over & over trying to find models to work with, ppl constantly flaking on me or just ppl acting like they were gonna work with me when they really know they wasn’t gonna work with me, so I just had to stay consistent & work with only ppl who wanted to work with me which left my catalog looking kinda stale because finding new models to keep my page feeling fresh with new faces wasn’t easy.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My business is ran thru Instagram; that’s where I started from. Just trying to keep it moving strong while I venture out to creating more business outside of Instagram for myself.

But my Instagram business is usually set apart from others because I’m willing to work with you on a price to shoot it’s just insta at the end of the day so I’ll continue doing that for on insta.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up I was very laidback kid mellow & easy to get along with not an angry bone in my body. I was very heavy into video games that was my thing to keep me sane with life & everyday struggles
