Today we’d like to introduce you to Jhetta Ebron.
Jhetta, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I originally started off as the person in front of the camera. I was the performer, the entertainer, the artist. After a while, I started to realize that I could do a lot more behind the camera as far as spreading my influence goes.
Being in the entertainment business has allowed me to see the good and bad that come along with visual creators and I wanted to be someone that other artists could come to and trust with their craft. I first started off by recording and photographing myself until I got comfortable enough to take share my gift.
My first gig was a wedding and I knew if I could start there the possibilities for me would be endless and so far they have been.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
This journey hasn’t been easy but it has been so beautiful and I wouldn’t change anything. When you first start you typically think that you need so much but as you get more comfortable with your craft you realize that the vision and discipline are more needed than the physical tools.
I’m still encountering bumps along the way but I don’t want to get to a point where I’m not learning anything else so I welcome all adversity. Some of my biggest struggles have been knowing my self-worth. I never really realized how you can sell yourself short out of guilt or just want the person to accept your service.
However, I noticed that when you value yourself other people will value you as well. Now I set my prices and I gave my consultations without feeling so much anxiety because I now feel as though I am worthy.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I was first known for music but as I stated earlier I’m finding that I can do more behind the camera. I specialize in videography and photography. However, I don’t limit myself to one type of craft, I try to get out and experience as many opportunities as possible.
I’m currently editing a wedding but this upcoming weekend I will be shooting a graduation video and the week after that I will be shooting a live art event. Even though it may seem on the surface that you can only do certain things, I can now tell you that that is not true.
We live in an age where content is so important so there are so many different things that you can do with this camera. I would have to say that I am most proud of how far I’ve come in such a small amount of time. I would also like to shed light on being able to be my own boss. I have worked so many jobs and the only thing that really matters to me is having great leadership when I couldn’t find that I became everything that I needed.
I think my professionalism and my vision are what sets me apart from other people while also being able to understand my clientele no matter their background. I’m not the best in my profession but I can say that I am one of the most dedicated visionaries that have picked up a camera in the last couple of years.
Are there any books, apps, podcasts, or blogs that help you do your best?
As much as I read, I would have to say that watching movies has definitely helped my craft. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in trying to make something powerful on purpose that you end up missing the entire goal.
Movies have allowed me to realize that it’s OK to have fun with your craft. Not every ending has to be an award-winning ending and not every ending has to be happy.
It just says to make sense to you. Quentin Tarantino has shown me that in so many ways through film. Harlan Coban has given me an imagination through reading.
