Our publicist tells us we need to brag more, so here is our best go.
We are photographers just like you. More appropriately, we are also business owners and we have been for over 20+ years. We understand the subtleties and nuances, successes and failures, achievements and frustrations with running a business.
If there is one central lesson from everything we have been part of over the last 20 years, it’s the importance of strong connections and nurturing relationships.
They can make the difference between success and failure, between the lonely road of entrepreneurial life and a tribe fueled by helping each other grow. So a few years ago, we started making a purposeful effort to build better connections.
We started educating small groups of entrepreneurs in intimate workshops centered around branding, purpose, and using social media responsibly to form more resilient connections, which as we see it is the cornerstone of your business, it’s why you exist.
Covid hit so we launched a podcast to stay connected to our growing community. The podcast led us down a rabbit hole of launching our own mastermind, which eventually led us to starting Sprout Connectors.
This brings us to today – launching Photography House.
Like you, we have attended countless workshops, been to innumerable trade shows, and online seminars, and participated in countless stylized shoots (with 100 other photographers) always looking for ways to stay connected, improve our craft and become better humans.
You could say we’ve seen it all.
In all of those experiences, there was always something missing for us, so we set out to create the perfect recipe for photographers that included the critical ingredients for today’s impactful, business: education, branding, social media, and of course, photography, all centered around the cornerstone of humanity, connecting with others – and Photography House was born.
Now a little bragging about who we are…
a photographer, cinematographer, writer, creator and connector in every sense of the imagination.
Hi there, my name is Deevo and I am the owner of Fusion Photography, CEO of Sprout Connectors, and Co-Anchor of the popular podcast A Little Impolite.
Did you know that I stole my first camera? And that my first experience with digital photography was taking photos of repossessed mobile homes in the deep south while living in California – and now I call the Carolinas my home?
I started my “professional life” working for the man, but always felt stifled, and unfulfilled, so I set out to find my purpose in a passion and found it at the intersection of entrepreneurship and storytelling. I’ve always been fascinated with people. I mean look at us 7.5 billion strong and every one of us is uniquely qualified to add some value to the planet.
I discovered through many trials and tribulations that my gift is connecting with people and through my lens and connections revealing their superpowers and beauty.
My approach to photo and video is no different than my theories about a fulfilling life itself: connect, be willing to push the bubble, and always be authentic and original.
I am beyond thrilled to bring you Photography House.
Lisa and I have toiled many midnight hours to bring this together, and we are excited you will be joining us on this three-day adventure. I can’t wait to meet you.
