Meet Koffi Hemadje of MarsView Studio in North Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Koffi Hemadje.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Koffi. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
As I was growing up in my home town Togo, I used to draw and I was very good at it. I believe my passion for Photography came from that. Every time I travel out of USA, I ask myself how can I tell a story about people that I meet or places that I visit. So my answer was Photography. That’s when I bought my first camera. I knew camera alone would not be sufficient so I need to open a business where I can share my work with the community.

So I sat down a write a business plan. I read articles and did most of my researches on the internet. I reached out to people that can help me out and today we’re running a small successful business.

Has it been a smooth road?
Anyone that has worked on a project can testify that it’s never a smooth road. Business is like a project that never ends. When I first started I was faced with time management because having to work my day job and run the business at the same time. Some other challenges were to find time to spend with the family and financing.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with MarsView Studio – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
At MarsView Studio, we are specialized in Portrait Photography. We’re known for taking good pictures and making good videos. I’m most proud of the support that our community has shown and the service that we’re providing.

At MarsView Studio, we do not Photoshop our pictures so we deliver pure natural photographs and we do exactly what our clients want because we believe everyone has a different perspective when it comes to photography.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I like the diversity and the fact that it has so many different activities to offer.
