|Tell us about yourself and your business.
I have been into photography for about 15 years. I started Lindsay Borg Photography in 2013 with no real plan, I just knew that I wanted to specialize in High School Seniors and I couldn’t put my camera down. I never had a chance to test the waters or dabble part time…I was out of work and this was my chance to do what I had dreamed of since 18 years of age. Making as many mistakes as I could, these were my small victories. I knew I had to make them. So my first year was completely devoted to just that. I now shoot almost 100 seniors per year. I love everyday that I get to discover more of what this industry has to offer!

|Where do you draw inspiration from?
Landscape. I love nature, the desert, sunsets, light in general. I live in the most beautiful desert in the country! I embrace it, and incorporate it in my work as much as possible.
|What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
Pricing! I’m sure this was an obstacle for most photographers starting out. It took awhile to learn and understand my own value. Its hard to pass up on clients because of price but I know now that I am worth what I charge. I’m proud of that.
