Meet Trailblazer Alishia Sandecki

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alishia Sandecki.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I picked up a camera when I was younger, but I didn’t take it seriously until I moved to Colorado in 2015. I am self-taught and self-motivated.

Has it been a smooth road?
No. There was a time when I put my camera down because I was pregnant. Now, the biggest struggle is childcare for my two children while I’m out on shoots. My husband works every weekday, and so this leaves me with a small window to do what I love but I make it work.

We’d love to hear more about Sly Fox Photography.
I specialize in creative and candid shots. I love collaborating with designers, hair and makeup artists, and models to make a styled photoshoot. I love candid shots with families. I don’t own a professional studio and I am working on building one in my house. I mostly shoot outdoors, or inside shops with permission or permits. I am most proud of my clients, and I’m proud of the finished product. I genuinely love what I do, and I feel it’s my personality and the experience that sets me apart from the others.

Finding a mentor and building a network are often cited in studies as a major factor impacting one’s success. Do you have any advice or lessons to share regarding finding a mentor or networking in general?
Facebook groups are a great place to start! I have a local photography FB group that has meetups and helps each other. I also am self-taught so I look for books from the library, YouTube videos, or I learn by practicing. What really worked for me was to get out of my head, and just to get out there! Go to events, market yourself, utilize social media. If you want to get even more professional, make a website, own the domain and work on SEO. I haven’t gotten that far yet but that is part of my bigger goal as a photographer.
