This week the We Hartford Project is highlighting a talented, dynamic duo!  Brothers Gary and Michael are the owners of Fourteen G Photography Studios.
Hartford Girl: Why did you start Fourteen G?

Gary: Fourteen G was started a little over three years ago for a many reasons.  One of the main reasons we decided to go into business for ourselves is because both my brother and I previously worked for larger companies in the past.  We have always felt that these companies put a limit on our growth and creativity.  The types of projects we were assigned were not always the most exciting and we’ve always felt that we could do more.  In our spare time we would help out our friends and family with graphic and programming work.  It was a very rewarding process to see a project through from beginning to end and genuinely help someone.  We both have degrees in technology.  I have a degree in computer science and Michael has a degree in graphic design.  When the opportunity presented itself, we decided to make the jump from employee to entrepreneur.  We wanted to use our technical skills to help businesses with their graphic and web design work.  We have since expanded to include operating a photography studio that we use for projects and rent out to clients.  Networking with all of the different entrepreneurs and business owners in this area is one of the biggest perks of our job.  Hartford is a growing market for small business and we are happy to be a part of it. 

Hartford Girl: What is your biggest challenge with running Fourteen G?
Gary: Our biggest challenge with running Fourteen G is probably not that different from any other company out there.  We are always looking for ways to find new business.  The methods to get your company’s message out to prospective clients is forever evolving.  At the moment we are a team of two, so balancing existing work with going out to find new business is a huge challenge.  We found that one of the most effective ways to get quality referrals is to network and build quality relationships with other businesses.  Small business especially relies on its community and reputation for survival.  We are trying to establish a good relationship in this community by being honest and delivering a quality service.
Gary: I think Hartford is a market with an enormous amount of opportunity for small business.  I’ve lived in and around Hartford my entire life and I think that the Hartford area is a great place to live and run a business.  In my opinion, there are not too many dominant players in most industries in Hartford, which provides a unique opportunity for new businesses to grow and seize the market.  You also have fast and easy access to neighboring cities and states with minimal traffic.  One thing that has pleasantly surprised us is the number of entrepreneurs in this area.  We hope to work with as many of them as we can and be a part of their businesses development.

This is an awesome fruit of hard work from both of you. I sense that someday you can get more projects that you can put your name not only in the house, but also in other country that you can work for. I wish after I graduate I can put my name in many bridges, buildings and many more. I want to fulfill my Dad’s dream for me.
