My wife and I own Allison Ragsdale Photography in Durango, CO. Our profitable studio supports both of our incomes. Allison never wanted to do anything besides be a photographer. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Photography and began work as a photographer right out of college.
I, on the other hand, took more of a less direct path to where we are today. In college, I managed a camera store. After we moved to Durango, I taught high school math. I hope that my management expertise, teaching skills, and marketing know-how will help you in your journey.
I wish I could say I stumbled upon a magic formula that helped us succeed, but the reality is that I’m no different from you. Our studio has a lot of competition and everyone in our market is a photographer. Over time, I’ve discovered how to refine and promote our product to attract and retain customers. My goal is to share what I’ve learned with you to help you focus on your business and make a difference for your family. When you can make money doing what you love, you can stop struggling and start enjoying your work again.
On a personal note, I live in Southwest Colorado for the hunting and fishing. As of late, I have really gotten into home brewing. If you find yourself in the Four Corners region, look me up and buy me a beer.
