Ace Fanning is the owner/founder of Ace Fanning Photography in Phoenix, Arizona.
From Ace himself:
BIRTH GIVEN NAME. IT’S NOT A NICKNAME AND IT’S NOT SHORT FOR ANYTHING. IT’S JUST ME.
I AM DEFINITELY NOT THE COOLEST GUY YOU WILL EVER MEET…
BUT THAT DOESN’T PHASE ME THE TINIEST BIT. I LOVE BEING AT HOME.
I’VE NEVER SUCCESSFULLY PARTICIPATED IN A CONVERSATION ABOUT SPORTS, NOR COULD I TELL YOU WHAT CHANNEL ESPN IS EVEN ON. BUT I CAN TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT DRAMA WENT DOWN ON ANY REAL HOUSEWIVES REUNION SPECIAL. I DON’T LIKE EXERCISE AND I REALLY DON’T LIKE EATING HEALTHY. MY PERSONAL STYLE CAN BE DESCRIBED AS AMUSEMENT PARK COMFORTABLE. AND BEST OF ALL, I AM MARRIED TO MY HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART AND BEST FRIEND OF OVER 11 YEARS.

On this episode, Skyler is joined by Ace Fanning. Ace is the owner of Ace Fanning Photography.
Ace had one job before starting his own business, and it was a front desk job at a chiropractor’s office during college. He says that it was the best and worst experience to ever happen to him, and he quickly learned that he did not want to work for someone else. He did not want his days to feel predictable.
Letting others dictate his business was the biggest mistake that he has made within his career. He says that he used to let others tell him how to dictate his business and when he stopped letting that happen, his business nearly doubled that year.
His advice to someone wanting to go into the photography business is “If you are looking to do photography to make extra income – good luck. Photography is my passion first, business second – and if I ever have it any other way, I would not be able to do what I do. This industry takes a lot out of you, and if you are just doing it to grow your bank account, it is not the right balance of give and take. For me, this industry takes a lot from me, and while it grows my bank account, it feeds my soul. I have never been so passionate about anything in my entire life and this business, with the exception of my wife, has done more for me than anyone I have ever met.”
