Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle Balingit.
Based in Los Angeles, Michelle also known as Sey Michelle is a photographer and social media specialist for lifestyle brands. When I was a young kid, my dad has taught me how to draw. I fell in love with art instantly. I experimented with sculpting, painting, you name it. On my 16th birthday, my dad bought me my first DSLR which was a Nikon D3000. My mom is a general manager and I watched her run businesses as long as I can remember. She inspired me to also be part of a business as well as have my own. My parents have been an inspiration for me, as I got the artistic side from my dad and business side from my mom. In 2010, I started as a freelance photographer as a self-taught photographer and late last year, I started offering my digital marketing services. I plan to hopefully do this full time once I graduate from my university this May with marketing major and film and media minor. I got here today as I surround myself with people who continue to motivate me and inspire me. I love capturing moments in life that is worth looking back to. I believe that you’ll always be a student of the world and there’s always something new to learn every day.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road but it’s never a smooth road for an entrepreneur. Some of the struggles along the way is financially getting my photography and digital marketing gears. Having creative slumps where I would not have ideas of creating content. These struggles have helped me learn how to overcome them, even though, I experience them more than once. I believe that these struggles are lessons meant to be learned as an entrepreneur.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Sey Michelle – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
My business is a photographer and social media specialist. I take photos and videos for lifestyle brands as well as manage their social media. I am known for being a photographer as I started offering my digital marketing services late last year. I am most proud of meeting amazing people and capture special moments in life. I believe what sets me apart from others is, I like getting to know my clients and businesses. I like to show the photos and videos of their personality and who they are.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
What I like about my city is the diversity that it has to offer. I feel like I’m exploring the world in my city. I can be in Tokyo, in Little Tokyo during the day and Korea in Koreatown during the night. With so many varieties of small destinations, I can learn and experience the culture every single day. The only thing I like the least of the city – traffic.
