Meet Sheehan Fisher of Dovetail in South Loop

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sheehan Fisher.

Sheehan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have a passion for travel, and experiencing the world and other cultures. During travels with my wife, I wanted photos to take home that would make me feel like I could relive my experiences. Selfies or having to ask a stranger to take a couple of photos were insufficient. I started to think outside the box and looked for photographers in the areas that I was visiting. It really changed my vacation experience and ability to cherish those moments. After a while, I realized that others deserve to have the same opportunity and it is not always easy to find a high-quality, affordable photographer in a foreign city. So, I started to contact previous photographers with whom I was impressed with their work and search for photographers in new areas who offered the same high quality as I would expect for my own photos. I created this company to give everyone access to unforgettable memories.

Great, 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?
The hardest part of starting a company with a novel idea is getting people to know that the service exists. Most people who hear about the idea are excited and interested in having a photographer for their travels. But the difficulty is reaching people who are planning a trip to inform them of the opportunity to put a nice finishing touch to their vacation. I am working on marketing, building a following on social media, and informing travel agencies about what we have to offer.

Dovetail – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Dovetail is a vacation photography company that helps connect travelers with local photographers to create treasured memories. We have photographers in the US, Europe, and Caribbean and are expanding. Our photographers will guide you on a stroll through the city and take candid and posed shots at local attractions and hidden gem locations that give you a true feel of the city. We pride ourselves on providing affordable rates compared to our competitors and working with personable photographers who know the depths of what the city has to offer. We tailor our packages to singles, couples, families, engagements, honeymooners, and destination weddings. In addition, some of our locations offer affordable videography that really bring the memories alive.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment was taking a novel idea and creating it into a strong business plan and growing company. I truly believe in the model of pursuing business ventures that you enjoy and personally believe in, which can be easier said than done. But, I am very pleased to see my plan come to fruition and the positive response from my customers who proudly display their photos on social media and view their pictures as one of their most precious souvenirs.
