And now a little more about Casey:
How did you get into photography?
I've always loved photography - I especially loved going through old family photographs when I was a little girl. I took a short photography class in high school and I guess that's when things really took off! I was taking photographs all the time and got lots of compliments. That's when I decided to save up for my very first DSLR camera and I haven't looked back since!
What is your favourite genre?
My favourite genre would definitely be portraiture - I love being able to take photographs for families that they will continue to look back on for the rest of their lives. I've recently shot for my first wedding too - that was an amazing experience.
Describe your perfect workspace.
I'm really messy, so my perfect workspace would be clean and completely clutter free - I'm working hard on achieving this! I have lots of photographs pinned up around my desk - they keep me motivated and make me laugh from time to time hehe. I also make sure that my lolly jar is always full - just in case I get one of those pesky sugar cravings haha.
What are your goals for the future?
I'm only 19, so I have many goals and dreams for the future. Professionally, I plan to promote my etsy store like crazy so I can get some more sales flowing. I also want to work on getting my name out there and developing a client base for my portrait sessions. At the moment I am working hard to complete my university degree (Primary School Education) so that I can move out of home! I would also love to write a book, get married, have 2 little children and travel the world!!
Thanks Casey, and Good luck!
