Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in photography but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Eric Podbevsek, Founder of Vivid Edge Productions, located in Mississauga, ON, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

We are photography and videography professionals! Our core customer base is heavily involved in the Real Estate sector; however, we also cater to weddings, commercials, and the event industry.

Tell us about yourself

Initially, photography was a hobby for us. Taking pictures of cars, people, and events was a passion we had always loved. Fast forward to today, we have evolved this hobby into something much more - a business that has grown to serve Toronto with the best photography and videography service that caters individually to each industry. Our motivation lies directly with our clients. We strive to deliver the results they need that will drive their business forward and put a timeless smile on their face.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

On Christmas 2022, our team raised $4,000 for a local homeless shelter and delivered 400 meals to help people in need this holiday season. We stand to help our community, and giving back to our people is our core value.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

One of our challenges is definitely scaling our business while keeping our quality of work the same. We are perfectionists in our industry and strive for constant excellence. We recognize that we need to grow by adding more core people to our business, and finding talented individuals can be a struggle at times!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Start today - do not procrastinate.
  2. If you are passionate about something - pursue it.
  3. Don’t be afraid of rejection - it will only grow you.
