What is the ASoP working on right now?
The Atlanta School of Photography (ASoP) is adding more photography classes and workshops to host at our new home at Alkaloid!
Who is your ideal client?
Anyone excited to learn photography – the ASoP teaches the technical, artistic and everything in between.
What is a common misconception about your work?
That it’s EASY. From teaching and scheduling, to corresponding with students, to partnering with other businesses, it’s A LOT – I’m either spending all day in the car or late nights in the office.
What is your big picture vision for your business?
To expand to multiple cities across the Southeast and have a City School of Photography franchise.
What is your superpower?
I am great at engaging with people to learn. I like to think that my excitement and passion for teaching is clear to anyone who meets me.
What is your favorite business or productivity tool?
Business end (it’s so boring): Gmail, honestly!
Photography end: Shootproof – they’re amazing and deserve all the praise for making my life as a photographer easier!
What book or podcast should every entrepreneur (or everyone) read/listen to?
Honestly, I have trouble finding books and podcasts for entrepreneurs I can relate to (maybe I should start my own?). However, for your mental health sake, listen or read something inconsequential, like true crime or a bunch of nerds playing Dungeons and Dragons, give your brain a break everyone once in a while!
This is an easy one! I’ve already said to so many folks when they asked why, we looked at so many other coworking spaces and Alkaloid was the only one that didn’t feel overly corporate, or super “bro-techy”. Katharine was super inviting and we have the chance to support another women owned business in Atlanta. Absolutely, every time.
What is your favorite amenity?
The patio and Eastside Atlanta Beltline access. We moved from a spot where there was NO outdoor space, and as photographers who love being outside, we can’t get enough of it.
What advice would you give someone considering coworking?
Do it. I get excited to come in every day and don’t feel so isolated as we did in our old space.
