What do you do when your city doesn’t have the workload to support your profession? Find out how Christina Kennon pivoted to video in this Creator Spotlight, and how she never stops looking for that next big job.
How did you get into creating videos?
I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Advertising Photography, then I moved to Kansas City. I quickly found out that there wasn’t a huge market for photography there, so I switched to video. That’s where the industry was going anyway. Adobe software is so streamlined that I picked everything up really quick—about 6 months—and I started to get jobs almost immediately thanks to my network.
Do you have a particular niche or interest(s)?
I started with product- and food-based video work, then moved to event-based work for brands such as Big 12 and Philips 66. But now it’s morphed into almost solely social media content creation for brands.
