NAPCP: Do you have any big business plans for 2017?
Rya Duncklee (RD): Absolutely! I’m currently in the process of a few exciting things I have in the works for 2017, including building a stand-alone studio on our property! I’m still in the planning stages with our architect, but this has been a longtime dream of mine and it is FINALLY coming to fruition! I plan to have a grand opening early fall 2017.
NAPCP: What is your favorite part of doing business, as a photographer?
RD: The constant change! I’m never bored with this industry. There is always something new to learn, some new technique, a new trend. I love that a work day is never the same, and that there is always room for growth. I also enjoy meeting new people each week.
NAPCP: What is your favorite vendor for customized communication for your clients?
RD: Design Aglow. Their products are functional and blend seamlessly with my brand.
NAPCP: What are your office essentials?
RD: My iMac, my RAID external drive, and my day planner! I think having an organized office is an essential even though that isn’t technically a “product”. I find when I sit down at an organized desk at the start of a work day it helps me to stay on task.
NAPCP: What’s your favorite thing about your office?
RD: The colors, and the custom shelving. I chose the same colors in my office that I use in my brand. Aqua/mint have always been my favorite colors. I live near the beach and grew up on the water so I find the blues calming and relaxing. And of course white to me is simple and clean, so I tried to keep that throughout the space. The custom shelving in my office is of my design. And the hubby helped me to install it. I took a bookshelf and turned it upside down so that I could utilize the space above my desk, creating more shelving.
NAPCP: In closing, tell us something we may not know about you!
RD: That’s a hard one! I’m a master scuba diver. I’ve logged hundreds of dives. Diving is one of my passions. Someday I would love to incorporate my love for photography with diving and take some underwater dive photography classes, and perhaps even teach some.
