The Seniorologie Directory is a listing of senior portrait photographers across the country. The purpose of the directory is to provide seniors a place to find the perfect senior portrait photographer for their senior photos. As a member of the Seniorologie Directory, photographers receive a blog post that gives them the opportunity to share a little about their business and themselves.
Today’s Seniorologie Directory Member Share is Danah of Danah Zoulek Photography in Colgate, Wisconsin . Check out her work and read all about her below.
How long have you been in business? 2 years
What percentage of your business is a senior? 80% (at least)
What do you think makes a perfect senior session? A fun and light hearted atmosphere. Seniors who are laid back and willing to try new things make a perfect session!
What do you love most about photographing seniors? They are so energetic and excited about this time in their life. They love going al out and love trying new things!
What would you say is the biggest challenge in your business? Parents understanding the current industry. I had to make a business decision about whether or not to offer digital collections and after many agonizing months of debate I decided to go all in on offering digital! I believe technology has changed and so has the market and what elements create a desirable product so now that I offer a modern product that teens understand, getting their parents to understand the value is another story!
Describe your photography style? Modern. Timeless. Fun. (hey, the three word rule right?!)
What motivates or inspires you in your photography? LIFE! elements like light, relationships, experiences, and cycles of nature inspire and motivate me. I like to find the essence of who a person is, and while fashion is important, I’m more concerned with genuine posture.
