We had the good fortune of connecting with Kathleen Frank and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kathleen, other than deciding to work for yourself, what was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?
Showing up consistently has made such a huge impact on my success. The tiny, little steps really do add up! And even if you don’t have a lot of time, if you can find a way to build a little bit more of your business every single day or every single week and stick with it through the slow times, you will be amazed at what you can create.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Shoot It With Film was born out of a love for film photography and a desire to create a place where film photographers could learn, share, and grow. It’s the place I wish I had when I started shooting film. Our journey has had so many ups and downs. We’ve had to adjust and change directions when things weren’t working, but each bit of growth is so incredibly rewarding. Shoot It With Film is now an amazing community with an incredible team of writers, all of us with a focus on education and sharing a love for keeping film alive and strong.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m afraid this I don’t have a great answer to this question! We moved to Texas just before the pandemic hit and have been able to explore very little of the city.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Shoot It With Film exists because of an amazing group of film photographers who decided to take a chance on this little community and contribute their expertise to help others learn. A huge thank you to Amy Berge, James Baturin, Jennifer Stamps, John Adams III, Samantha Stortecky, Jen Golay, and David Rose.
