Today we’d like to introduce you to Yuri Gregorchuk.
Yuri, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m a father to 2 beautiful children. I started off taking candid & yearly photos of my children & realized I had a very big passion for it. After dabbling in photography which started off as a hobby, I decided to commit myself 100% to create one of a kind photos.
Has it been a smooth road?
For the most part, it has been smooth. At first, I enjoyed taking photographs of my loved ones, & relatives. Most people would see my images online and email me for bookings saying that they really loved my style. Can’t say that it hasn’t been hard because not everyone will understand or like every picture you take. The real struggle is balancing life, spending time with my family and creating one of a kind images for my amazing clients.
What’s your outlook for the industry over the next 5-10 years?
It’s evolved so much already. It’s only going to get further & further. There’s so much talent out there, that hasn’t been discovered. I feel that it’s underrated because of businesses, talents, etc.
Need photographers who are constantly challenging themselves to create amazing images.
What has been the primary challenge you’ve faced?
Finding my own personal style of photography. Just like the great painters of our past, I want people to look at my images and immediately know that I’m an author of that image.
What would you tell someone who is just starting out?
Be yourself, try to stand out and don’t give up. Do it because you love it and enjoy it first.
