We had the good fortune of connecting with Darrel Price Jr. and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darrel, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking is an integral part of my business. It goes from sharing my vision to a client to posting my work for the world to see. That risky set design or insane pose could be the difference between 1 client and 5.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I like to consider all my sessions and photography interactions an experience. While not only knowing that the quality of my work is important I also try to make a personal connection with everyone I work. I think all shoots should be fun without having to sacrifice the work.

I would be discrediting myself if I said the journey was easy. It has taken a lot of consistency. Photography is a field in which you need to always continue to learn and I’ve done just that. Many courses, many nights on youtube, many mentor sessions. Whether it’s fundamental or on the job.

I’ve faced difficult clients, troublesome guests, miscommunications, and data crashes. These things have taught me to assert myself when needed, clarify to an extreme level, and backup my data multiple ways.

My brand makes me proud by providing what I mentioned in the first paragraph, an experience backed with quality and a personable photographer. Not to mention I have great prices!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well let’s talk about eating first, cause I mean everyone loves to eat. You have to get some Texas BBQ from Terry Blacks. I’m originally from Memphis so I know a thing or two about good bbq. Texas does it right. They would then have to checkout the graffiti at the Fabrication Yard immediately followed by visiting the Ronald Kirk Bridge/Trinity Skyline to see some amazing views. When it comes to cool drinks Beto & Son must be paid a visit. Wrapping up my suggestions it food again (of course), you can also get really good drinks, and that’s Kitchen + Kocktails.
