Embarking on a journey with Flickr
Almost 5 years ago, I accepted a full time position as a part of the Flickr Support Team. Embarking on a professional adventure at Flickr has significantly enhanced my customer support skills, proving that the principles of exceptional service align seamlessly with the world of photography. This has improved the way I work as a business owner, and how I serve my Today Everlasting Photography clients.
Communication lies at the core of my Flickr experience. Actively engaging with a vibrant community has sharpened my ability to articulate ideas concisely and respond promptly—a skill set crucial in customer service.
Additionally, beyond its professional utility, I enjoy using Flickr as a platform to share my photography. The community serves as a wellspring of inspiration, where I draw ideas from other photographers that fuel my creativity. Engaging with members broadened my network, offering a valuable arena for discussing techniques, sharing insights, and building a sense of camaraderie. Balancing professional and personal roles on Flickr enriches my experience, highlighting the platform’s importance to me as a photographer and community member.
You might recognize some of my wonderful clients in these albums that I have created in my Flickr account:
In customer service, empathy is key. Encountering diverse photography styles has deepened my appreciation for various perspectives, strengthening my capacity for compassionate customer service.
In essence, my journey at Flickr has transcended photography, transforming into a dynamic training ground for customer service excellence. This journey refined my communication, organizational, adaptability, and empathy, allowing me to deliver exceptional customer service that surpasses expectations.
I’m looking forward to using these customer support skills in the years to come. I’m also proud to share the beautiful portraits I’ve been able to create with my amazing clients. Working together, we can continue to make Today Everlasting memories.
