Today we’d like to introduce you to Christopher DeGrace.
Christopher, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was in between Jobs after a recent layoff. This was my second layoff in 8 years. Initially, I was trying to find ways to help my brother expand his newly started photography company [Degrace Imagery] after brainstorming I came up with an Idea that was so great & beneficial for his company that We decided that I start my own. I decided to partner with my brother & childhood friend who own his own Videography company [Truvizionfilms] to help me along the way. With Embark being a new company, our fist objective was building our brand. Since their companies already been working with models, we decided to start off by branding them. We did our first Shoot April 2015 and been continuing our visual expansion ever since
Has it been a smooth road?
Actually, I have been blessed to have high-quality work & dedicated business partners at my disposal… It has been a very smooth road
When you look back, what are you most proud of?
The constant positive feedback & critiques about our work are always good motivation. But the Proudest moment is when we had our official company launch party last year December. We had decided to let a new venue called eleven45 lounge host our celebration. The support was shocking. We had over 175 people rsvp. Only 7months into the company and we had a strong showing. Really, put a positive perspective on our fan base & the quality of work we produce
Were there moments when you had to struggle?
It’s difficult trying to create business revenue at a rate where we feel its stability is in our comfort zone. Just on my end trying to get contractual obligations acquired can be a struggle.
What’s your outlook for the industry in our city?
I feel like Atlanta can be very competitive for small businesses due to this city being the souths railroad for entertainment & entrepreneurs. Specifically in the arts & crafts fields. If you’re determined once you separate your business from the competitors skies the limit. If you have big business goals, this is the place for your business
