Writer Tyler Mitchell says he started making his own photography by accident.
He was starting a new job as a graphic designer at a local grocery store, and he was looking for an opportunity to help someone else make their own business.
“I didn’t realize I could make anything,” he says.
“And I just thought, ‘What the heck am I doing here?'”
The first step is figuring out what you need to do to get started.
“You’ve got to figure out how much you need for your own needs and what you’re willing to pay,” Mitchell explains.
Then you need something you can do in a reasonable amount of time.
“Then you figure out what the most important thing is, what is going to get you through the first week of the project,” he adds.
It’s just getting started.”
Mitchell’s business is called Princess Margaret, and it started out as a side business for him and his family, with a small storefront in the middle of their home in St. Louis, Missouri.
Now, it’s a full-fledged, professional website that can take on almost any type of business.
But Mitchell also says it’s not about a paycheck.
“There’s no money in it.
We’re just making this thing for ourselves,” he explains.
“We don’t make money.
It was just a matter of, ‘Why not?’
There’s a lot of stuff that goes into it.”
Mitchel says he has always loved photography and he started out doing it for his friends, but he quickly found that it’s something he could get paid for.
He’s still getting his own camera, and his business is one he thinks about constantly.
Mitchell now lives in the St. Clair Shores area of St. Charles, Missouri, and is one of several photographers he works with, sharing his work with a wider audience.
The site is open to all, but it’s more for people who want to learn more about the art of photography, as well as to get in touch with other aspiring photographers.
