Today we’d like to introduce you to Veronica Zhang.
Veronica , please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve always had a love of visuals. Prior to becoming a photographer, I had a decade long career as a TV producer. Producing TV programs is very much like photography, it’s all about the visual, the unique perspectives and capturing genuine emotions and the essence of life.
I believe in bold colors and energetic imagery. Color has immense power to impact an image and express emotions – the results are stunning photos that overflow with joy.
I work with individuals, couples, and families. I believe life is all about moments, and each moment can become ART. With my unique east meets west background (having lived in Hong Kong for 20 years prior to moving to Orange County), my life experiences have helped to create my own unique photography style: Artistic, Timeless, Creative.
Has it been a smooth road?
It’s not a smooth road for sure, especially cameras and smartphones are everywhere today, everyone is their own “photographer “, it is quite hard letting people recognize your work and appreciate your art.
Have you ever felt like giving up?
I always have the passion for photography, never thought I would quit.
Tough moments? of course! especially photography is not only a hobby but a business I am running every day, I still remember how hard to get the first client in America 3 years ago when I moved here from Hong Kong.
The market of Family / portrait / wedding photography are much different between Asian and North American, I have learned a lot during the years, from this aspect I realized as a photographer most of time you are not only a photographer but a business woman, a communicator, sales, an educator, sometimes even a psychologist!
What would you tell someone who is just starting out?
Be a good photographer first before you start the business.
What are you most excited about these days?
I am going to direct a stage show and opening a studio next year.
