Steve Koo went to school for engineering and pursued an engineering job after school. Photography started as a simple hobby—but when he was asked to shoot a friend’s wedding (which he originally dreaded), he ended up falling in love with wedding photography. When the down economy led to a job layoff, Steve seized the opportunity to become a full time photographer.
A few topics from today’s show:
- Networking with other photographers (offering to buy lunch, coffee or a beer to sit and chat)
- Superb customer service
- Work life balance (Steve started out working 70-80 hour weeks with no days off, and his quality of life suffered—he’s now focusing on an efficient workflow to spend more time with his wife)
