Meet Zyaire Porter of Porterhouse LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Zyaire Porter.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I started with a camera in high school, but took it more serious after graduating. The birth of my daughter helped me realize how precious moments are and the importance of capturing those moments.

I got to where I am today by being consistent, but always growing in my craft. I provide all my clients (brands, companies and families) with quality, memorable photos that will last a lifetime. Whether the photos are weddings or a moment in a sports game, they are a frozen moment in time and that makes photography magical to me.

Has it been a smooth road?
No way, no how! This road is the complete opposite of smooth. One of the biggest struggles is to constantly create new ways to reach your demo. Another one is the need to stay CURRENT. Technology is forever changing, and as a photographer you have to adjust with the times or be left behind.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Porterhouse Los Angeles is a photography brand which provides photo services for weddings, portraits, events and more. I am Zyaire Porter, and I am the founder as well as the head photographer of the brand. We are most known for capturing concerts, sports and weddings in the Los Angeles area.

As a brand, I am most proud of the loyal clients we have gained & kept over the years. And what sets us apart is the fact that we can shoot it all, from weddings to sports to concerts and portraits there is nothing we can’t shoot.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I think our city is the best in the world for any business. Los Angeles is the perfect location for any type of business, however you will PAY for it. I wouldn’t recommend starting here because there are so many people that do “start” in LA, I would say go to a closer, smaller city like San Diego or San Francisco.

I think the only way for our city to improve is to lower the cost of essential things such as leases, taxes, permits etc.
