Rising Stars: Meet Denise Williams
Today we’d like to introduce you to Denise Williams.
Hi Denise, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story. My photography journey actually began in 1975 when I was just 15 years old. At that time, I became intrigued with images and bought a small camera and these were the days of film photography. After learning some basic photography concepts, it was just a hobby off and on for years, I decided in my late thirties that I wanted to take things up a notch but really didn’t know where to start, so again I abandoned my craft. After much contemplation, I relocated from my hometown of Brooklyn, NY to Jacksonville, FL in 2001 and later married my husband in 2007. He gifted me a camera because he’d seen some of the images I started posting online. So I not only began shooting again but decided it was time to go ahead and start my photography business which included social media services. It came right on time, because the recession in 2008 took my job as a loan processor with it, so I felt it was the time to shift gears and jump right into a new venture.
