Hello and welcome to my first blog post! I’m Jennifer Klanika, a professional photographer specializing in crafting visual brand narratives, a.k.a. visual stories, for small to large commercial and advertising clients. I am new to this blogging thing, and I admit that I’m a bit nervous about keeping up with it from here on out. However, I think it is a great way to communicate to you about me, what’s behind my photographic vision, as well as who I am as a person. I will try to update it once per week, so I hope you bookmark it and follow me as we go along this journey together.
What led me to doing this type of work? Well, my past work experience for one (non-photography related) plus having the drive to make a living in something I’m passionate about—photography of course! Previously, I worked for a national retail clothing store, small energy consulting firm, large computer manufacturer and a small online marketing company. Having worked in those various industries taught me so much about all aspects in business. During the time I was in between jobs, I went back to school to pursue an education in my long-time passion. After spending several years developing my photographic style and attaining two Associates degrees in the Department of Professional Photography at Austin Community College, I realized it was time for me to take this all to the next level by starting my own company. The education doesn’t stop there. I’m one who constantly enjoys learning something new and staying connected within my industry. Therefore, being a member of both ASMP and PPA is of upmost importance for me as a professional.
