We had the good fortune of connecting with Sir. Henry Thompson Jr. and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sir. Henry, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
There wasn’t none. With over twenty-five years working on computers, networking systems and resolving clients issue, I had the privileged of getting laid off SCE. I was getting bored with being a technician and I knew that no where would hire me at or even close to the salary coming in a newbie. So with no business or marketing background let along knowledge but I did have a vision and wanted to continue to use my customer service skills and my hobby as a photographer to bring happiness to others. That was the foundation behind the starting of Still Moments Photography.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
All of my reoccurring, and all of my referrals has been credited to my high level of customer service that all of my clients has credited me to be the main reason as well as my quick turn around time and great photos.
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.
There are several spots in Los Angeles that anyone can find satisfaction no matter what they are looking for. Not only does Los Angeles provide you with a large variety of food, music, entertainment, and sports but also the overall geographical areas. There is no where in the world where you can go skiing in the morning, surf in the afternoon, and star gaze at night in the desert and all in a day.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
One of my biggest mentors has been another photographer named Herman Askew, with over twenty years of experience who must have felt bitty for me as he took me as his padawan. I, also want to thank everyone who have given me the opportunity to cover their event(s) from Newport Beach Film Festival, California Vans Skateboarding Organization, Veterans in Media and Entertainment, and Disney to Artists like Ve’Dechi, DJ Fonz, KikiSmooth, Breezy and Dioro Clothing and many others.
