DELEGATE: Tell us more about yourself
Knot in Pics was born with the intention to make every dream event come true. Combining our love for Photography and Designing, we hope to provide everyone with keepsakes that would last their lifetime looking through all the fun they had at pivotal events of their lives. With our utmost confidence and perpetual energy level that soars beyond the lifetime of a Duracell battery, we like to think we are the eyes and memory bank of our client. You won’t believe how much fun we can bring! Throws confetti
D: How did you get the idea or concept for your business?
I have always loved photography and designing. It is an interest i don’t mind losing something i treasure a lot for; SLEEP. So when i was approached by 2 of my friends who is also currently my business partners who had the random idea of reviving Knot In Pics, i immediately said “Are you kidding me? Of course!” I couldn’t resist the opportunity to combine the 2 things i love and make it my “job”.
D: What is your vision/mission for your company?
We envision our company to be one that makes every dream event come true. We do not just sit on the idea of just providing a service. That’s boring! Shakes head We want Knot In Pics to go above and beyond, making the people we interact and work with, excited to work with us again!
D: How did you start it? What were some adversities you faced when starting it?
Plenty of research and discussions were done prior to starting Knot In Pics which covers the logistics, marketing, manpower and legal side of starting a business.
We would be lying if we said we faced no difficulties! To name some, it would be the lack of capital as we started off with our own savings, gaining client’s trust and also the tech side of the business which involved website hosting and design. Sadly, none of us went to school for that! Laughs but we’re thankful we managed to overcome them.
The photo booth industry is a growing and fun industry! *Nods head* There are so many opportunities for growth in terms of the form of service we are able to provide but it all boils down to whether we have the capability and are willing to take the risks. Why we say fun you ask? Its because we get to be creative in suggesting ideas for templates, backdrops and props as well as listen to our creative clients share with us their ideas! We have the most fun when our clients, partners, or even fellow photo booth owners we interact with joke and laugh with us! Trust us, it happens quite frequently.
D: What has been the most memorable experience for you so far in running your business?
It definitely has to be the opportunity to meet so many new people during events! We just love seeing guests try on our props and having fun with the props while posing for our camera! We’ve seen so many hilarious poses our guests make and we absolutely adore them! We secretly go through each photo captured after every event to relive the fun. Laughs Shhhh…
D: How do you define success? Who do you see as successful?
To us, success is not all about who earns the most money. It is knowing that we have added positive value to our clients, partners and the people around us while doing what we love which is managing and growing Knot In Pics.
D: Which habits of yours have gotten you to where you are today?
We would say resilience and believing in ourselves. For most people (we’re not talking about those who were just born lucky), things don’t happen overnight. Along the way, working towards whatever we want, there were several moments when we felt clueless, disappointed or unsure if things are going to work out but well, that is how life works. We’re not perfect. We just have to come back stronger than ever. Easier said than done but at least we tried.
There is a saying that goes “when you feel like giving up, remember you’re the sperm that won” Yes, out of all the quotes in the world, that stood out for us. *laughs* but really, if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.
D: What is one thing you would like your customers to know about your company?
We print photo cards instantly for your guests to keep as souvenirs. A fun-loving photographer will be part of your event, guiding and spurring on your guests to relax and be themselves whilst bringing out their natural best in every shot! Every job is unique to us, hence specially designed in-house templates would be created to fit every individual event’s style! So if you have a wacky idea, just tell us and we will work hard to fulfill your desire.
As cliché as it may sound, our advice is to WORK REALLY HARD and always be hungry! Laughs We’re not talking about food alright! What we meant is hungry to grow. Being an entrepreneur is a non-conventional career path so you have to go that extra mile to constantly improve yourself by gaining knowledge, which would not only make you a better entrepreneur but also a better person too! Trust us, it is a fun and exciting journey, so JUST DO IT! Smiles
