We had the good fortune of connecting with Taylor Krauser and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Taylor, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I’m constantly taking risks in my business! From originally going off on my own, to something like buying a new piece of equipment or rebranding, risks are an inevitable part of running your own business. I believe you need to take risks to grow and if you are a little anxious about something, its probably a good step forward!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a fine art photographer who specializes in documenting destination weddings, events and editorials. I’m based out of Charleston, SC but travel all over the world for my work! My preferred method is medium format film, however I also shoot digital, 35 mm as well as drone photography.
One of my proudest moments was being published on the front page of Style Me Pretty! I also won a photography award when I was much younger and it was presented to me by Meryl Streep!
When I started my business, it was not easy. The photography market in Charleston is extremely saturated and it was a challenge to stand out from the rest. However, with a lot of perseverance and determination, I’ve been able to create a business that I love and am happy to work on every day.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Eat Lobster Rolls at 167 Raw
Shop at Gwynns or Hampden on King Street
Hang at Shem Creek, perhaps take a boat out.
Take a walk down the Pitt Street Bridge in Mount Pleasant or stroll the battery.
Have dinner at Oak Steakhouse
End the day by seeing one of my favorite djs at Trio
