Our INSTAGRAM crush of the week // MARISSA ALDEN - PHOTOGRAPHER
We can’t compliment MARISSA A on her work enough! Her work encapsulates the meaning of beauty with a creative vibe on each and every photoshoot. She’s not just our instagram crush of the week but instagram crush of dare i say, year! I asked her three quick fire questions so you can delve into the mind of one of the best!
1.What sparked your interest in photography?
From and early age I have always loved art, I used to draw and paint a lot when I was younger. I always knew that I wanted to be an artist of some kind, but it wasn’t until I started photography in high school that I knew exactly what i wanted to pursue as a career. I took photography as a class when I was 15 and was instantly hooked. From there I started planning shoots on weekends and used my family and friends as models. After I finished school I discovered fashion photography and fell in love with it. Fashion allowed me to combine my passion for art and photography.
2. Why do you love being apart of theright.fit?
Theright.fit is a great way to connect with other creatives. I love how easy it makes finding models, stylists, makeup artists etc in my area.
3. Any advice for photographers just starting out?
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t make it as a photographer. A lot of people quit because they are told that photography isn’t a real job, or that its too competitive and they won’t ever be successful. Never stop learning, take small steps everyday and you will eventually get there.
