We had the good fortune of connecting with Takiel Stroman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Takiel, how do you think about risk?
I feel risk taking is essential in any business. To even start a business is taking a risk. All of my business ventures have been from taking risk. For instance, I was saving money and only had $200 and took the risk and brought my first camera. Which opened the door to Key Photography.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think im a different artist and professional all around. I love to give people that raw and natural energy and product. I wouldn’t say it was hard to get to where I am because i’ve always been laid back.Just being me raw and natural. Some of the lessons I can say I learned along the way was having a plan is the key .

Things just flow a little bit better with a plan. Hmm what would I want the world to know about me…. Fishing is my favorite pastime.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Ok so im definitely a foodie. Some food places we would definitely go are Clives, Chef creole, Red’s on southbeach, Daileys Delights. The list can go on. I would definitely get a nice hotel/ airbnb in brickell. Brickell has the best views. I think the most exciting people are unproblematic people. People who can talk and squash a misunderstanding or let stuff go. Oh and jet skiing is a must in miami.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
So i would love to dedicate this to my wife who pushes and motivates me all the time. While having her own hustle she still manages time to help me. I would also like to dedicate this to my family for being my number one supporters.
