Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT HGordon Photography!
Three questions with Harrison Gordon, founder of HGordon Photography.
Why did you start your business?
I got into photography for fun quite a few years ago. At one point, I began thinking bigger picture about what I was doing and decided photography didn’t have to be limited to my own enjoyment. I realized that there are plenty of people who would benefit from having my work on their walls or websites. I could make days a little bit better for people in the community while capturing beautiful moments for them.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Families love my portrait photoshoots. My goal is to help each family have creative, beautiful pictures to last a lifetime. In addition to families, realtors and property managers like my all-in-one aerial and interiors photoshoots so they can showcase their properties dynamically.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
Since I set out, I have explored a few different avenues. I started off in the art world, but upon realizing that establishing oneself as an artist is more gradual, I began working with families and doing portrait photoshoots. Over the next couple of years, I won awards in some local art shows and held personal galleries — most recently at Pequot Library.
I’m always looking for new ways to reach the community. You may have seen my work in local publications like In A Fairfield Minute and ConnectFairfield, or on the cover of the Town Planner. Most recently, I have been expanding into real estate as I’ve had opportunities to work with amazing people on beautiful properties, producing lots of diverse and innovative content.
Harrison would like to nominate Avellino’s Restaurant to be featured next!
