Interview with Stephen Gebhardt
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Photography evokes a sense of closeness in my heart with nature and what’s in my vicinity. I have always thought the idea of persevering a good memory in the form of a photograph is a magical thing to do, and I wanted to learn and practice preserving the most beautiful moments in my life.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
There will new budding photographers every day, but it is important to remember that only you can paint your canvas with your personal experiences and make your art unique. Also, I would recommend never stop enjoying what you love to do.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Before anything else, I am extremely grateful to the places I have had the privilege to visit that have inspired me to no end and have compelled me to take photographs.
I am also thankful to all my friends and followers for loving me and my page.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I spend ample time trying to conduct workshops where I convey my knowledge about the art of photography and the interesting history of Cameras. I hope to inspire people to the point they would want to pick up a camera and test their own talents.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Destin Sparks said, “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.” We can’t always go back in time to revisit some of our greatest memories, but photographs preserve that day, and I am hoping to someday show this to my next generation so they could know all about all the places I visited.
