Hi everyone, nice to meet you! I’m Helena Price, an ex-techie-turned-pro-photographer based in San Francisco, CA.
A short version of my story is here: https://vimeo.com/92670774
I spent the first half of my 20s working in tech, helping to build tiny startups as an early employee - then couple of years ago I decided to ditch my tech career and try to figure out how to do what I really want - make photos - for a living.
Since then I've figured out how to build a photo business, and have worked on photo projects + creative campaigns with folks like Airbnb, Dropbox, Fitbit, Google, Medium, Microsoft, Nike, Pinterest, Rdio, Samsung, Shyp, Soundcloud, Square, Twitter, and Uber.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection of photography, technology and design, and sometimes I speak about it at design conferences. You can view my most recent talk here: https://vimeo.com/120301504
If you have any questions about photography in tech, quitting your day job, building a creative business, making photos or anything else really, leave ‘em here and I’ll pop in to answer them at least once a month.
