A beautiful part of growing up in a world with internet is getting to learn from and connect with others in your industry. While the old way of seeing friendly competitors as just that—competition—the new way of seeing them is as colleagues, allies, and even mentors.
I recently had the pleasure and honor of doing a photo swap with the lovely Raya Al-Hashmi of Raya on Assignment. Just for fun, we took each other’s portraits and answered a few of the same questions about working as brand photographers in the tight-knit community of Portsmouth, NH. Whether you’ve worked with one of us or both of us or neither (yet!), I think you’ll enjoy hearing the different ways we see our beloved town, the faces in it, and the creative marketplace.
