Community Highlights: Meet Dessmond Brown of 27 Inc Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dessmond Brown.

Hi Dessmond, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
27inc started while I was in college. My roommate was taking up photography and needed a hand with his assignment. While helping I joking said that I could take better pictures. he lent me his camera and the began my love for photography. As the years went by, I used my family and friends to practice on in order to gain experience and knowledge. In 2016, I had my first paying client. and they loved the energy that I brought. Since then, my work has been spread word of mouth to gradually give me consistent work to continue to improve and perfect my craft.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has not been a smooth road. There are always doubts that you get off if your work is good enough. It people will pay for your craft. Most of the struggles are within myself and once I began to move past the doubt I was able to move so much further in my career. Consistency is the Key.
