We had the good fortune of connecting with Sarvesh Ramakrishnan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sarvesh, can you tell us about an impactful book you’ve read and why you liked it or what impact it had on you?
The Book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie was a book that had a great impact on me. The book is about how you can use social skills to make yourself more likeable, better to work with, and also to get things done in your businesses. For me, it taught me many skills in both outreach for my brand and also socially in my personal life, especially taking control of tense situations like arguments. It also teaches you to become a better person in the eyes of others.
The main problem these days is that you can be a good person, but that does not convey to the world. However, this book teaches you how to convey your “goodness” to the world while becoming happier.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I do car photography and portrait in the local Oklahoma City area. What sets me apart is that I started taking photos for my business and videos for my YouTube channel at a very young age. I created my YouTube channel at 10, and I have been vlogging ever since I was 5 years old. I used to post anything I wanted to, challenges that inspired me, and many other things with my family. In fact, I started a YouTube channel (The SB Bros) at 12 with my cousin, which is the main channel I run now on my own. I am still learning a lot on YouTube and still am working to share my videos with the world!
I also used to take photos at a young age too. I used to post all my photos to my Instagram starting off, and then I started taking photos for others, starting with cars for friends and at car meets. I got my first shoot to do of a car with my friend, and then I shifted into portrait photography. I have only done a few shoots for friends and have not made much money at all from it, but I hope to put a lot of effort into making this a side business I enjoy.
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 would like to shoutout my mom, dad, and
brother for supporting my passions in photography and filmmaking.
Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today and where I will go in the
