We had the good fortune of connecting with Raemi Rhue and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Raemi, how do you think about risk?
I have admittedly taken more risks in my life than the average person would be comfortable with. I’ll be honest, I’m a rule breaker. Most rules don’t make sense to my brain, so I prefer to make my own as long as no one gets hurt. This mentality has helped grow my business, as I don’t put boxes around my clients and listen hard to what they need so I can cater to that.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I hope you don’t mind me getting personal here. I’ve been in business for 12 years, but only the last five have I managed to create the job I truly love. I got sober in 2015. The recovery work gave me access to clearly see what I wanted to do while bringing integrity to every aspect of life. Since then, I have put my heart and soul into growing as a woman, a photographer and business owner and am now fulfilling my passion in the commercial photography industry working along side other business owners. Every job is personal and a long lasting relationship gets built.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Glenwood Springs is one of my favorite mountain getaways. It’s a quick trip from Denver, the drive is spectacular. Take the gondola up to the Adventure Park and go splunking (cave tour), sit in the hot springs, or take a risk with white water river rafting. It’s a rush!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to give a shout out to Pam Briere, the owner of West Main Taproom + Grill. She had just opened a brand new restaurant right before the pandemic, and has managed to not only stay alive, but thrive. She has pivoted to become one of the most successful restaurants in Parker and has been able to employ additional staff as the growth continues. I am her corporate photographer, and am so grateful for the opportunity grow with this organization.
