Hi all, my name is Alex Stechschulte (don’t hurt yourself trying to pronounce my last name, everyone struggles! :P), I am a freshman at Grand Valley State University in West Michigan, I am studying Business with an emphasis in Marketing and Advertising. I have had a passion for art since I can remember, but when I was in high school, drawing and painting was put on the back burner, and my passion for the art of photography exploded! Photography wasn’t just something I did in my free time, it became my life, photography defined me. And I love every second of it!
I specialize in Portraiture and Equine Photography. In my photographs, I love capturing and conveying a story; I love to show the world who my subject is, and let their personality shine through!
I started blogging, well, because I thought it would be fun and a great way to show people who I really am! Then I found myself struggling and not knowing what to write about. I didn’t know where to go with my blog, but after a few recent weeks of research, and reflection I came up with an idea! I would write for potential clients (really anyone who is in search of a photographer to capture their memories!) and would give them insight for improving their photographic experience, you know like tips and tricks! I began to write my first blog entry two weeks ago and it was going well, but I never put it out there. Then, today October 14, 2014, Alex Beadon, a young entrepreneur I look up to, started a Feel Good Blog Challenge, which entailed seven days of blog posts… Challenge accepted Alex!
Lately, I have been super busy being a new freshman in college, writing paper after paper and reading stacks of informational documents (some interesting… some not so much! Haha!), while also running my rapidly growing, successful photography business! I am not going to lie, at times it has been a struggle, but it’s been worth it! I love what I do!
Through my blog, I want to share my personality, my passion for creating images that make people feel beautiful, and expand my audience while providing helpful insight for people to receive the most out of their photographic experience!
Thank you for stopping by!
