Today we’d like to introduce you to Sela Shiloni.
Sela, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I did party photography for friends, and then people would hire me coz they liked the way they looked in the party photo. I was doin’ a portrait photography version of party photography, and it paid off.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It’s not been a smooth road, but it’s not been super difficult either. It just takes some investment, and that always feels shitty. Nothing in photography is cheap. I’m still spending uncomfortable amounts of money to upgrade my business.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Sela Shiloni – what should we know?
Uhh I’m a portrait and editorial photographer and I specialize in monochromatic color blocking.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Yes many shout outs are deserved. Shout out to my fiancé for being supportive of me having a home studio and constantly having strangers in the house. Shout out to my friends for always sharing my shit around and pimping me to my friends. Shout out to Thomas Middleditch for being the first celebrity to agree to shoot with me. Shout out to my friend Max for letting me borrow his very nice camera for a very long time.
