Arise, Blog! April 28. 2011
My name is Michael Lawing. I've been with Pro Photo for nearly two years. Coming from a Film and Media Studies background at USC, I was super excited to join the team at Pro Photo. It wasn't what I expected, but has turned into so much more than I could have imagined. The company is really special, and I'm not just saying that because they cut my checks... What Pro Photo does is take stellar images during events that can't be replicated and saved memories that people will treasure forever. I get paid to make people smile - during the photoshoot and when they see the print.
It's a real joy to work at Ft. Jackson every week. That's where I got my sea legs on the entire process. Each member of the D.R.I.L. Team has to be confident and competent with sales, customer service, photography, and printing. Besides building a stronger team, this cross-training makes the whole process faster and of a higher quality for our customers. Our customers are great, too. Every week, I get to work with the men and women who keep us safe. The soldiers and their families are wonderful people and it's really a pleasure to get to deliver once-in-a-lifetime portraits to each of them.
My hope is that this blog will be entertaining and informative.
