Five Questions with Ambershaun Byrd of Abyrdseyephoto Productions

Abyrdseyephoto Production is an inner-city photography studio that serves the community through corporate and event photography. Abyrdseyephoto focuses on capturing candid, off guard portraits that reveal your true character (a-byrdseye-view), presenting a creative, professional, convenient and amazing experience for customers.


What inspired you to create your business?

I’ve had a love for taking pictures since I was a young girl and was always capturing everything going on around me. As I grew up, I worked for a grant to make extra income to turn my hobby into a business.

What separates Abyrdseyephoto Productions from the competition?

We offer a boutique experience and an emphasis on printed products. We also ensure that we understand our customers expectations and desired outcomes before we begin taking photos.

How did you first learn about JumpStart and the Northwest Ohio Impact program?

I learned about the Impact Program from attending the first JumpStart event that was held here in Toledo. I originally was reaching out to become a photographer for JumpStart and ended up in the program.

What is the most important thing the program offers to entrepreneurs?

The most important thing it offers is the opportunity to speak with other people who have been in business and can help you with things that you don’t normally get to talk about with your family, friends or other peers.

What are your future plans for your business?

My future plan is to expand my business to employ a full-time assistant, a videographer and an event planner within our own space so that we can offer a one-stop-shop for people looking for media solutions.
