In The Beginning
The Early Days
It all started with some friends asking Andrew to borrow some equipment. That was 2010. Andrew soon started posting ads on Craigslist, meeting up with people in parking lots, at Winco, El Pollo Loco, Starbucks and other random parking lots in the IE.
As you can imagine, that was a little risky, so it was only right for Andrew to get a location. To cut down on overhead, Andrew started renting out desk space. One day a mutual acquaintance introduced Pro to Andrew, who needed a place to work, and his only desk was rented. Isn’t that Beautiful? Andrew being a commercial stock photographer for Getty and IStock at the time was busy with shoots. So busy sometimes, that he would ask Pro to help him with customers while he was out shooting. One thing led to another and a helpful hand turned into a long term business relationship.
Pro at the time knew nothing about photography, but had a background in restaurant management and quit to face his entrepreneurial path. Today Pro is more skilled than Andrew at photography. SIKE!!… Just joking, but he is actually a pretty smart guy and knows a lot about photography now.
Fast forward to today, Andrew has started a new venture called Cooled Collective, and Pro Operates IE Photo Rentals Full Time.
Andrew & Pro are still great friends who are passionate about business, creative arts, and have a huge love for people and seeing them succeed.
