What’s your favorite photo shoot memory with a Main Street Hub customer?

“My favorite memory was at a pet care center, the owner brought out a ferret for me to photograph! Also, when restaurants offer me dishes after I photograph them… doesn’t get better than that!”

What’s your favorite thing about photographing local businesses?

“My favorite thing about shooting for Main Street Hub is knowing that I’m part of the process of building a social awareness for local businesses. On a personal note, I would have to say that I become aware of some of the local businesses that are in my own community, and I can help spread the word about their business.”

What’s your favorite photo shoot memory with a Main Street Hub customer?

“My favorite has to be the shoot I did for Desert Wolf Tours in New River, AZ. By far my most fun shoot as I got to go on a jeep tour, and thanks to the tour guides, learned a little about survival in the desert. Did you know you can actually eat a cactus? I can’t recall which one though.

Additionally, there is a photo of a jumping cactus latched onto my shoe. I now know why they call it a jumping cactus, but don’t worry, no injury became of it.”

What’s your favorite thing about photographing local businesses?

“I love to support local businesses. Any chance I get to buy local I take it — it’s good for the community, and it’s good for the environment! I love that I am able to help these local businesses to create compelling, custom visual content. By having high-quality, authentic photos, I know these businesses will stand out among the competition and continue to grow their local brand and garner the attention they deserve.”

What’s your favorite photo shoot memory with a Main Street Hub customer?

“There have been many great photo shoots, but one business that really stands out is Burnt Mill Creek. It’s a hole-in-the-wall bar in a more quiet part of town, but it has an amazing atmosphere. They were hosting their weekly jazz night, and the crowd really felt more like old friends than complete strangers. With a pool table, a jukebox, and a unique, copper penny bar top, this place has a lot of character, and plenty of charm!”

What’s your favorite thing about photographing local businesses?

“Getting to know the people and businesses that are in my area. I’ve been introduced to a lot of local businesses I wouldn’t otherwise have known about.”

What’s your favorite photo shoot memory with a Main Street Hub customer?

“My favorite shoot with Main Street Hub was with my mechanic, J & J Auto Care [in Madison, TN] just a mile from my house. It was pretty cool to be there for work instead of car troubles, and we’ve all become good friends since!”
