Will Sterling:From Jackson, Mississippi
S: What brought you to Atlanta from Jackson, Mississippi?
WS: I wanted to expand my market and be open for more opportunities. Over a 5 year span of traveling back and forth to Atlanta, I already built a foundation for my brand.
S: How did you start your career in photography?
WS: Well . . . [I've] always been fascinated with capturing moments. I started out doing weddings for the reason to help people relive moments by capturing those moments through photography and video. jok

MS: There are plans to having a studio in Atlanta, but we just want to continue expanding the brand with plans of something in the future.
S: What are your 2017 goals?
WS: Working on the continuous expansion of the Sterling Photography brand. With a focus in wedding photography, we want to expand to Houston for more wedding photography.
S: Describe your preparation process when working with Kontrol Magazine.
WS: Session with Kontrol Magazine! Well the thing that helps most is having a vision board for the upcoming shoot. Once I receive the concept or vision it allows me to prep with proper lighting, gather the right props and set the location.
S: What is a typical day for you Mr. Sterling?
WS: A typical work day would be waking up and checking-in with Gary in Mississippi for the day to day scheduling there. Then working on improvements and marketing. I also check my Atlanta schedule for shots and prep work....mainly checking emails, editing photos for clients, and resetting to do it all over again the next day.
