Jaysen Turner is 2tee Couture’s photographer extraordinaire. We decided to interview him about his awesome job and his experience shooting our latest Spring 2014 collection.
I grew up in Michigan but have been fortunate enough to travel and live all over the world. After several successful years in a completely unrelated field, I decided it was time for a change and began pursuing my passion for photography. Now four years later, I am very happy to be doing what I love.
What are the best and the most challenging aspects of your work?
The business side is definitely the most challenging. If I could have a camera in my hand every day of the year, I’d be the happiest person alive but unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. There’s a lot of time to be spent running the business and figuring out how to get my work in front of potential clients. The best part of my job is working with people and being in a team environment. I enjoy overseeing projects from concept to completion and working with a team to move pieces around, plan, and implement until the whole project comes to fruition. The results inspire me to keep shooting!
Tell us about the last 2tee Couture photo shoot?
The 2tee Couture photo shoot was full of synergistic changes. There was opportunity for new relationship-building with members of the staff and we had a new model on set as well. I was extremely impressed with how efficient we all worked together and what had been produced by the end of the day blew me away. Model, Becca was amazing as always and Ineska did a great job jumping right in as the new face of 2tee Couture. The 2tee Couture team were clearly on top of their tasks prepping the pieces, keeping things organized, and styling the models. Michelle our makeup artist did a fantastic job with makeup and hair, the girls came out glowing. It was just the right attitude we wanted to convey for Spring. I have to give credit to 2tee Couture designer Sigal Levi the Spring 2014 collection looked incredible. The team is definitely upping its game and I found it extra inspiring on this past shoot. The designs, cuts, lines, colors, everything appear even more sophisticated and elegant than before and I’m excited to be involved in showing that off.
What are your goals for 2014?
My goals for 2014 is to continue growing my business and take on more clients in the fashion industry. I certainly enjoy being a photographer and working with different types of clients, however I particularly like relationships like the one I have with 2tee Couture. Shooting together on a regular basis helps me grow and perfect my craft. I aim to focus on editorials for websites, print marketing materials, magazines and beyond.
